New Zealand provides a wide range of quality golf courses.

In fact there are more than 400! Play a good selection of them as part of your "premium summer of golf"!

New Zealand is a popular destination for a number of reasons. One of them is the beautiful natural environment where one moment you can find yourself awed by a fjord, the next moment you are feeling peaceful and tranquil amongst a native forest, the next moment you are stunned by a dramatic landscape of snow capped mountains, rivers and valleys that takes your breath away and then you find yourself teeing off on a marquee New Zealand golf course (see below) and you realise and begin to really savor why you have come to New Zealand to play golf.

Second only to Scotland, the home of golf, New Zealand has more golf courses per capita and it is understandable why golf is one of New Zealand's most popular sports.

Many of New Zealand's unique and fascinating golf courses are contoured and designed to fit in with their natural settings.

The top courses are put into two categories - marquee golf courses and experience golf courses.

What's the difference?

Cape Kidnappers - Marquee Golf Course

Cape Kidnappers - Marquee Golf Course


Marquee Golf Courses in New Zealand are world class courses, often ranked in the top 100 of the world, that were designed by designers such as Tom Doak, Dr Alister McKenzie, Robert Trent Jones Jr and Jack Nicklaus. These courses are selected based on a number of factors but most importantly the ability to meet the high expectations of golfing travellers. 

All four of our standard premium golf packages include marquee courses.

Terrace Downs - Experience Golf Course

Experience Golf Courses, which are often located close to the marquee golf courses, are courses that have a strong connection with the local community and provide varying level of services.

A number of "hidden gems" type experience courses can be found right through out the country.
