Tara Iti is New Zealand’s finest course and will be for many decades to come. It sits in its own league above all other marquee courses in New Zealand. It is as simple at that.

An ultra exclusive and private members club, Tara Iti is located 1.5 hours north of Auckland on the Mangawhai coast. Access to the property is best done via helicopter.

The property and golf course is not open to the public but it is possible to play here, subject to approval, and you will be required to stay overnight in the luxury accommodation.

A smorgasbord of the world’s most influential golfers, golf media and famous golf playing VIPs such as Barack Obama have visited this exquisite destination and it is clear that Golf Digest’s ranking of the course at #6 (on debut) is right on point.

The Tom Doak designed masterpiece is exceptional and all who are privileged to play this course will be treated to a golfing experience, unlike no other. In fact we believe that Tara Iti really is a slice of heaven, unlike no other.
