Manukau Golf Club: GOLF COURSE WAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN 2015, and sold to residential property developers.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Manukau is another of Auckland's older and well established golf clubs, with a very good, easy-walking, tree-lined, parkland layout. Given its proximity to Highway 1 and the airport, this quite compact course is surprisingly quiet, especially when you get out to the 3rd green and then play the short par-4 4th, which requires a shot across part of the picturesque Papakura estuary.

There are many very good gently dog-legging holes, and several tight fairways lined by towering mature trees of many varieties. Without too much rough between the trees, ball-finding is not difficult for those wayward drives, but how you go under, through or over the trees is another matter!

All three of the par-3s are excellent, as is the not overly worked bunkering. If anything needs attention its the slowish greens, otherwise another excellent parkland course within easy reach of Auckland's centre.
