Cape Kidnappers is an exceptional course with spectacular views, many holes bordering on threatening cliffs 500 ft. above the sea! 

One round is included at Wairakei Golf & Sanctuary (NZ #5 Top Course) – one of New Zealand’s oldest recognised resort courses.   Opened in 1970, Wairakei was designed by a 3-man consortium that included the late Peter Thomson.

The final round is scheduled for The Kinloch Club, currently rated (NZ #3 Top Course). This is the only Jack Nicklaus Signature course in New Zealand.  A must play with a variety of tees giving you a multitude of links challenges, as you would expect.  The opening holes set you up for a great round, with the back nine offering many great views over New Zealand’s largest lake, Lake Taupo.
