New Zealand, as a passionate golfing nation, has a high number of quality golf courses.

In fact there are more than 400!

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.

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.
