Where2Golf says: 

Kerikeri Golf Club: The surrounding quite hilly countryside may have you wondering what's in store here at Kerikeri Golf Club. Surprisingly a relatively flat course, albeit with some major exceptions. - on the front nine the par-5 3rd hole plummets steeply downhill towards the green, and is followed by a stiff climb back-up to the flatter environs via the short and tricky par-4 4th. On the back nine, the wonderful short par-3 13th plunges downhill to a very well protected green (plenty of water and bunkers), and is then followed by three undulating short par-4's. Although the rest is relatively flat, the course is full of interest with an excellent layout, and probably more tree varieties than contained in any Tree Spotters Guide to New Zealand - one imagines some of the wonderful array on show are imported as well as native species. This all adds up to some very pleasant walks along lightly tree-lined fairways, which lead you to even-paced, but not overly bunkered greens.

Did you know?

Kerikeri (meaning "keep on digging") is steeped in both Maori and European-settler history. It was here in 1822 that John Butler built what is now the country's oldest house, Kemp House. The equally famous Stone Store soon followed and by 1836 was in use as the mission store. These wonderful buildings, together with a replica Maori village, Rewa's village, on the opposite bank, are often regarded as the "Cradle of the Nation" and are a must for all visitors to the Bay of Islands.
