Kauri Cliffs | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Kauri Cliffs GC

Kauri Cliffs was designed and built by David Harman of Golf Course Consultants, Orlando, Florida. It is a par 72 championship golf course that measures 7,119 yards / 6,510 meters with five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Tee selection is an important decision here, with gorges, fairways, and some of the healthiest and thickest grass in the world, making it easy to mount up a tally of lost balls. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs that plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest, and farmland. Golf Digest currently ranks Kauri Cliffs as #39 among the top 100 in the world.

The Kinloch Club | 2021 New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

The Kinloch Club is a recent addition to New Zealand’s golf selection, opening in 2007 as Jack Nicklaus’s signature course. Although the course is far inland, it pays homage to British Links. Situated on volcanic terrain, it seamlessly blends the raw links style into age-old Kiwi sheep farming territory, surrounded by craggy hills and scenic views of the imposing Lake Taupo. It is now considered by many golf experts to be the #1 course in New Zealand and is sure to give even the most experienced golfer a rugged test.

Cape Kidnappers | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Cape Kidnappers has consistently rated the #1 course in New Zealand and has received critical acclaim from around the golfing world. This Tom Doak design occupies a huge expanse of property, with the drive from the public road to the clubhouse taking you through a sheep and cattle station. The golf course is set on pristine land, wedged between the station and the huge cliffs of the Cape. The much-photographed course has several holes separated by deep ravines running down the South Pacific Ocean. The course also offers commanding views over the wine region of Hawke’s Bay and the nearby small port town of Napier.

Christchurch Golf Club | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Christchurch Golf Club has a proud history that dates back to 1873. The club is the second oldest in New Zealand and the fifth oldest outside the United Kingdom. Its Shirley Links course has held numerous New Zealand Open and Amateur Championships. In 1990 it hosted the World Amateur Team Championship. The course is renowned worldwide as a challenging championship course of the highest quality, offering a fair golf test for both club and professional golfers. The Club Patron is former Club Champion Sir Bob Charles, New Zealand’s most successful professional golfer, best known for winning the 1963 British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes, England.

Jack’s Point Golf Course | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Jacks Point GC.

Jack’s Point Golf Course is between the majestic Lake Wakatipu and 2,300 vertical meters of the Remarkables Mountain Range. Jack’s Point was named after the 19th century Māori local named Jack. He was awarded a medal from the Royal Humane Society of Britain after saving a man’s life when they had capsized in Lake Wakatipu in the winter of 1862, an extraordinary rescue. It traverses through the wetland to the lake edge, encountering steep bluffs, indigenous vegetation, and wildlife. The course is not only one of the most spectacular in the world but, with an 18-hole par 72 Championship course, offers a challenging and lasting experience to any caliber of golfer.

Tasmania Golf Course | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Tasmania Golf Club is surrounded by water on three sides and perched atop the picturesque Barilla Bluff. This scenic and enjoyable layout is routinely ranked among the top three in Tasmania. A frequent host of the Australian Amateur and Tasmanian Open, the club moved to its current location in 1971 with this course designed by noted architect Al Howard. The course measures 6,820 yards with a par of 72 for the men and 6,056 yards, 74 for the women. Accurate driving is imperative throughout, and the 165-yard par-3 18th delivers a delightful finale.

Moonah Links Legends Course | New Zealand Australia Summer Golf Cruise

Moonah Links Legends Course links-style layout was built to honor past champions who have contributed to Australia’s rich golf history. Every hole is named after a winner of the Australian Open, beginning with the 2000 titlist Aaron Baddeley. Five sets of tees allow playing from 5,586 to 6,946. The par threes will get your attention; none measure less than 170 yards. The 16th – “Gene Sarazen” – is said to have the largest green in the Southern Hemisphere!
