Pukekohe Golf Club: Just south of Auckland as you head south on Highway 1, you can turn off the main road, head west, and arrive at the very pleasant, classically laid out, parkland golf course of Pukekohe - the layout's two nine-hole loops are lightly lined with a wonderful variety of trees, with ample space between the nicely undulating fairways - the best named combination of holes comes early on: the attractive short par-3 4th (David) needs a well aimed shot across a rock-lined, lily-filled pond to find the eye of the green, which may then give you the confidence to strike out at the ensuing par-5 5th (Goliath), which is played downhill from a wonderfully elevated tee - there are several shortish par-4s at Pukekohe, although most of them are doglegging holes and may resist attempts to overpower them with a driver - this said, big hitters will enjoy the challenge of trying to drive the pond that flanks the leftside of the par-4 13th (Narrow Neck) - with its array of good-width and tighter holes, some straightaway, others doglegging, some more tree-lined, others more open, some undulating, others flatter, Pukekohe provides an enjoyably varied array of parkland holes - good bunkering features most prominently around the greens rather than along the fairways, while beyond the course, rolling rural countryside rather than housing is what's in view - the closing par-5 duo throws up a good birdie opportunity at the 17th, but a tricky approach into the small final green, with Karaka Road in close attendance on your right.

When it started in 1912 Pukekohe Golf Club had a nomadic existence, moving from dairy farm to dairy farm, to the A&P showgrounds and onto Franklin Racecourse. This was followed in the late 1930s with a move to its present site. | The Maori word puke-kohe means "hill of the kohekohe", New Zealand’s native mahogany tree.
