There are no parallel fairways and no two holes are alike. Most tees are elevated, giving not only excellent visuals of the challenge ahead, but a 360 degree panorama of spectacular mountain scenery surrounding you.

Jacks Point With the Remarkables mountain range as a backdrop, and an armchair view of the outstanding lake and mountain panorama, Jack's Point Golf Course is one of the most spectacular in the world.

Wairakei International Golf and Sanctuary The Wairakei Geothermal Park is a place of majestic beauty. It was against this impressive backdrop that leading British Golf Course Architect Commander John Harris saw potential to create a championship golf course like no other. Skirting the edges of active geothermal fields he used the volcanic contours to sculpt fairways, elevate tees and greens and bury hazards within the natural landscape.


Golf Clubs & Course Overview Kinloch Golf Club Jack Nicklaus designed the course. It's a links style design, but not by the sea. Unlike links golf it has a number of greens protected by bunkers in front, requiring an aerial attack, rather than the bump and run. And the greens are highly undulating. The front nine is a nice warm-up for the more visually attractive and challenging back nine. Many regard Kinloch as the best course in New Zealand.
