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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
