Where2Golf says: 

Muriwai Golf Club: The open environment, sand dunes, pot bunkering, twittering skylarks and nervous pheasants all reinforce the classic seaside links feel of this excellent golf course, although black rather than white sand in the bunkers and on the dunes themselves does take a wee while to get used to. The two nine-hole loops cover quite different terrain. The first is played in a large, open bowl, where the surrounding tree-clad hills remind you how much nicer trees are when planted by nature than by man. The second loop takes you alongside some natural tree-lined areas and out again into the open, but never quite as close to the sea as you'd like. The sea is glimpsed from time to time, but there's never really a full-on view or stretch of holes running alongside it. The statuesque Norfolk pine trees and one or two other sub-tropical species remind you that this is a New Zealand links course, not one in Scotland, although bushes, bunkers and grassy rough still remain your principal threats. An excellent seaside course, especially for lovers of links golf.

Did you know?

In addition to its ruggedly, picturesque wilderness beaches, the Muriwai Beach area is also famed for its colony of over 2000 gannets, which, unusually, is located on the mainland. Viewing platforms allow visitors to observe the birds without disturbing them. Surfing, fishing and watching glorious sunsets are also major attractions in this area.

In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
