8-day North Island Golf Packages

Luxury 8 day North Island package playing 6 rounds of golf 

This 8-day package includes one night at the acclaimed Cape Kidnappers Farm Lodge with two rounds playing the Cape Kidnappers course designed by American golf architect, Tom Doak in 2004. The course is currently ranked #17 in the world by Golf Digest (World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses 2018) and #4in New Zealand best courses as published by Andrew Whiley, (December 2018); ratings and votes sourced from a number of golf experts and identities in New Zealand, including PaR nz Golfing Holidays Director, Denise Langdon. 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 course today is an absolute treat to play with much native wildlife and birdlife seen throughout the course, protected by a fully fenced predator-free enclosure.  

Golf is also offered on the Hastings Golf Course, often referred to as Bridge Pa, and either Napier or Maraenui Golf Courses as alternative challenges in this wine Mecca area of New Zealand. 

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.   

This tour is a mix of stunning and highly rated resort courses mixed with some recognised member-club courses.  Accommodation is offered, on a twin share basis in comfortable 4-star apartments with a one-night special TREAT in the 5-star Cape Kidnappers Farm Lodge.
