Kaitaia Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1921

Kaitaia Golf Club lies in the far north of New Zealand on the shores of the Tasman Sea. The "90 Mile Beach Golf Links" as its also known, is situated alongside the beach in Ahipara, near Kaitaia ... at the southern end of Te Oneroa a Tohe (Ninety Mile Beach).

Overlooking Ahipara Bay, this diamond in the rough (so to speak), might be a half days' drive from Auckland, but if you do make the journey up here, there's plenty to do and see along the way. There's also the up-market Carrington Resort, an hour away.

On this beachside golf course you won't find much in the way of bunkers, ornamental water features, or mile-wide fairways. But you will find a mic of rolling and flatter links terrain, a scattering of pop-up pines, an impressive tree-clad ridge as an inland backdrop, and as many ocean views as you care to absorb.
