Where2Golf says: 

The Kinloch Club is home to one of New Zealand's top-rated championship golf courses. Located a 20-minute drive west of the touristic town of Taupo, the layout is set a kilometre back from the shoreline of Lake Taupo, the country's largest fresh-water lake. Surrounded by the natural beauty of rugged open farmland, the layout also offers panoramic views down to the lake.

Occupying open undulating terrain, the course is not a true "seaside" links course. The excellent Jack Nicklaus design blends aspects of both links and parkland styles, and contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course to challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.

Stay & Play at Kinloch: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
