New Zealand's North Island Taupo

Taupo, in New Zealand’s North Island, is a great place for a family holiday and with two world class golf courses, the perfect destination for a golfing getaway.

Located along the banks of beautiful Lake Taupo, the town is home to around 25,000 people - many of whom are involved in the thriving local tourism industry. Watersports, skiing, fishing, sky diving, jet boating and para gliding are some of the activities enjoyed by visitors year round, and the incredible views of the lake and surrounding mountains draw people back time and again.

Wairakei International and the Jack Nicklaus designed Kinloch are must play courses for any keen golfer visiting the region. Both courses are superb, providing fantastic scenery and challenging golf.

Wairakei is one of the best known courses in New Zealand and a round here blends the natural beauty of New Zealand and its wildlife into one of the best 18 holes of golf to be found anywhere in the world. Opened by the Golden Bear himself in 2007, Kinloch is a true test of links golf. A round here is always memorable with the undulating fairways, unforgiving rough and slick greens providing a challenge to players of all abilities. The stunning scenery at every turn will bring a smile to the face of all who love to experience the beauty of nature while wandering through 18 holes of relaxation, no matter how well or otherwise their round is playing out.
