Windross Farm Golf Course: This recent addition to the golfing scene around Auckland arrived at the behest of the members of the former Manukau Golf Club. When the members decided to sell their plot alongside the Pahurehure Inlet (it was transformed into a hi-density housing development), they opted for a move inland to a new course next to the small Ardmore Airport.
Laid out on a former potato field, this not overly long links-style layout offers a mix of flat and undulating terrain, several small man-made lakes and bearded rustic-looking bunkers. "Minimalism" and an understated philosophy drove the design of the course, as well as the clubhouse and other facilities.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges.
