Mackenzie’s designs are notable for their sensitivity to the nature of the original site and he is admired for producing holes that offer an ideal balance of risk and reward.  After designing Titirangi in 1927, MacKenzie went on to design some of the world’s top courses including Augusta, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne.

DAY 3: GOLF AT WINDROSS FARM GC AND TRAVEL TO TAUPO

Set amongst picturesque panoramas in the south of Auckland is New Zealand’s brand new golf course, Windross Farm. A welcome addition to the North Island golf course offering and a facility that promises a very special golfing experience.  The new course traverses 60 hectares of pristine farmland with 360 degree views of spectacular tree lined hills and lush green countryside. It hosted the 2017 LPGA NZ Womens Open.

Windross Farm has been developed as a unique links-style course that offers a mixture of flat and undulating ground, man-made lakes and strategically placed dramatic bunkers to offer the best of golf and the natural environment. Both the clubhouse and facilities have been designed with a minimalistic and understated philosophy in mind and they truly complement the unique golf course, to complete the overall picture. 

After golf we travel to Taupo – (3 hrs)

TAUPO – located on the edge of Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake, Taupo is a pretty town renowned for its trout fishing, the Huka Falls, and the Wairakei Geothermal Power Station.  On a clear day, stunning views across the lake of snow capped Mounts Tongariro, Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe can be enjoyed and its close proximity to these Mountains in winter, makes it a great place to base yourself if skiing.

Accommodation: Wairakei Resort  –  2 nights including breakfast

Located amidst the forested slopes of the Wairakei Thermal Valley just outside of Taupo, the resort offers 2 thermally heated swimming pools for a complete relax after golf!

Evening:  own arrangements

DAY 4: GOLF AT WAIRAKEI GOLF AND SANCTUARY

Wairakei, a golf course in a wildlife sanctuary, has to be the quintessential New Zealand golf experience.

Only 10 minutes by road from the popular tourist mecca of Lake Taupo, Wairakei sits apart inside a predator-free sanctuary. This could be the quietest course ever with the only sounds from the protected native birds and the echo of club on ball. Gorgeous golf holes here wind their way one after the other through deep native bush. Return to your accommodation. Afternoon at leisure in Taupo.

DAY 5: GOLF AT KINLOCH CLUB AND TRAVEL TO NAPIER

This morning tee off at Kinloch Club.

The Kinloch Club
Golf at the Jack Nicklaus designed The Kinloch Club is often compared to the classic link courses in Scotland and Ireland. However, instead of traditional sea views, this world-class championship Par 72 course is positioned between panoramic views of Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest fresh-water lake, and the natural beauty of rugged rural farmland. Ranked as New Zealand’s number one golf course in 2014 by a select team of New Zealand Golf Professionals the Kinloch Club is also rated in the top 100 golf courses outside of America by Golf Digest Magazine.

NAPIER the largest city in the Hawke’s Bay, whose port handles the province’s huge volumes of produce, spreads around the wedge of Bluff Hill, sometimes still referred to as “Scinde Island.” Napier was almost completely surrounded by water before the severe 1931 earthquake flattened the city but uplifted vast areas of the surrounding seabed. As a result of the disaster, the city was almost completely rebuilt during the 1930’s, giving it an Art Deco style of architecture, unique to a New Zealand city.

Accommodation: Scenic Hotel Te Pania – 2 nights including breakfast

Styled to complement its remarkable location on the edge of the beautiful Hawke’s Bay, Napier’s Scenic Hotel Te Pania is one of the most recognisable hotels in Napier, boasting design awards for its style and offers an unmatched level of service to visitors to the region.

Cape Kidnappers is currently ranked 22nd on Golf Digest’s prestigious ‘World Top 100’ list.
