Where2Golf says: 

Tauranga Golf Club: Next to the relatively flat Tauranga race course, is the quite seriously undulating Tauranga golf course - undulating for most of the front-nine at least. Although quite a short course, which starts with two short par-4's (a few others follow later), the quality of upkeep and tree-lined fairways create an excellent impression, and the greens are top notch. The very good downhill dog-legging par-4 3rd and the volcano-like par-3 12th (called the Knoll) both reinforce the championship credentials of the course and ensure it is no pushover. The more undulating and interesting front-nine gives way to a back-nine that is flatter and more in view of the race course - in fact the par-5 13th does a pretty good job of wrapping itself around the outer rail of the racecourse's outward bend. In this popular holiday destination, you may encounter quite a few "holiday" golfers enjoying this pleasant parkland course.
