Muriwai Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

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.
