Where2Golf says: 

Waitangi Golf Club: Although not of championship length, nor perhaps championship quality in all areas, the Waitangi course is still a hot favourite with locals and visitors alike. After a very pleasant parkland front nine, with lightly tree-lined undulating fairways, the back-nine is immediately more open, more wind-prone and wonderfully more photogenic - just about every hole has spectacular views of the Bay of Islands and the Pacific Ocean. At the tee-boxes of the par-3 12th and short par-4 15th you'll be down at the waters edge, with the group behind hoping you don't dally too long while admiring the superb vista. Sometimes regarded as a great "holiday" course, Waitangi is more than that. Players of all levels will enjoy playing here - while the memory card in your camera better have plenty of capacity before you start the back-nine !

Did you know?

Very close to the golf course are the historic Waitangi Treaty grounds, where, in 1840, the Treaty of Waitangi was signed by up to 50 Maori chiefs and representatives of the British government. In exchange for giving Queen Victoria the right to acquire land, the treaty provided the Maori population with many of the rights and protections of British subjects. Not surprisingly however, with separate Maori and English language versions, the Treaty became a source of considerable further discussion and subsequent legislation. A trip to the Visitor Centre is recommended if you want to understand this key part of New Zealand's history and current race relations policies.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
