Cape Kidnappers (#17 Top 100 World Ranking, Golf Digest 2019) is the sister course of Kauri Cliffs (#37 Top 100 World Ranking, Golf Digest 2019) which features in the course line-up for the Copthorne Bay of Islands 4-Course Classic held each year in May.

Cape Kidnappers was designed by American architect, Tom Doak and continues to receive international accolades for the course and 5-star accommodation since its opening in 2004. The course is one of New Zealand’s most photographed courses, an exceptional layout with spectacular views, many holes bordering on threatening cliffs 500 ft. above the sea! The Signature Hole Signature hole is the par 5 15th hole, named Pirates Plank. This hole plays 800 ft. above the ocean with perilous drops on both sides. Go long over the green and your ball will sail for 14 seconds before splashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Hastings (Ranked #16 in NZ in 2019) is one of New Zealand’s best-known club courses, host of many amateur events over the years and proudly the home of arguably New Zealand’s best amateur players, Stuart Jones. In addition to a raft of club and district titles, Jones won a staggering seven national amateur championships. He represented New Zealand from 1953 to 1975, playing in seven Eisenhower Trophy events. His most notable achievements came when he won two professional events and the 1967 Canadian Amateur Championship.  Although Jones passed away aged 87 in 2012, his legend continues. Hastings Golf Club is an outstanding course, well known for its quality of greens and beautiful grassed fairways.

Napier Golf Club is presented by one of the countries few female green keepers, Ingrid Van Steenbergen – a past district representative, although other hobbies now keep her away from the course, other than been seen daily on a greens mower! Napier also has a proud history of hosting many amateur events and in addition to being part of the Golf & Wine Classic. One of the country’s oldest courses, its origins date back to 1898 at the current site of Waiohiki, which has the course laid out over three distinct areas of land that crisscross over the adjacent roadways.   Distinctive woodcarvings and ancient Maori gravesites give this course a unique flavour.

Maraenui Golf Club lies on the coast road between the two cities of Napier and Hastings.   In addition to a quality 18-hole layout, the club also manages an adjacent 9-hole challenge for beginners and social players. Boasting itself as one of the ‘friendliest’ clubs, Maraenui has a tight tree lined challenge that demands accuracy, especially off the tee. Like Hastings and Napier, Maraenui is also an easy walking course with sea breezes often coming into play.

The Hawkes Bay Golf & Wine Classic will be set in the backdrop of the wonders of Hawkes Bay that is known for its wines, food markets, unique gannet colony, and Art Deco architecture.
