Where2Golf says: 

Lakes Resort - Pauanui: Nestling down in a bowl of forested hills, approx 5 kms in from the coast, this excellently designed, constructed and maintained new course is set to become a New Zealand favourite. A few of the early holes are lined by real estate, but that's how it will stay. The majority of the course is played away from the properties, sometimes alongside one of several small lakes, but best of all, parts of the back-nine meander through some very natural swamp-like wetlands - here the course is at its best. On one occasion, between the 4th and 5th holes, you'll take a boardwalk through an area of wetland, intriguingly lined by Maori carvings. The bunkering here is excellent, not least at the par-5 17th, let's just call it "bunker alley". The 14th is one of many attractive holes, a tight par-4 with swamp on either side. A picturesque characteristic of the course is the surrounding scenery, always wooded hills but constantly changing as your round progresses. Definitely a new resort course with a bright future - lakes and all !

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
