It's Saturday and time to curate another luxury PGNZ weekend golf getaway!

We have previously showcased different regions of Auckland and yesterday we talked about Queenstown as a must visit golf destination but today we are going to focus on another region in the South Island.

Winery in Nelson

Winery in Nelson

Nelson is famous in New Zealand for being one of the sunniest areas of the country which means that it is a perfect place to play golf and a perfect place to spend a luxurious weekend with your family and friends. Boasting a number of wineries, art galleries, beaches and beautiful scenery best viewed on a scenic drive or flight, Nelson is the perfect golf weekend getaway.

Flying into Nelson is a breeze with more than 10 flights everyday from Auckland alone. You can also fly in via helicopter or charter plane. (our preferred option). Nelson delivers luxury accommodation experiences with three very high quality lodges - The Westhaven Retreat, Split Apple and Eden House .

Nelson offers a fantastic golfing experience. The region has several quality golf courses that have been ranked in leading golf magazines and worth playing:

Nelson Golf Club is a links golf course with some stunning views across the Tasman Bay. View the course guide here to see how this course has been designed and provides a superb golfing experience.

Greenacres Golf Club is "the Best Island Golf Course in Nelson New Zealand". Situated on Best Island in Richmond, on the outskirts of Nelson City, Greenacres is a beautiful links style course and one worth playing. They also offer coaching and an excellent venue to work on some golf improvement.

Nelson is a wonderful region to visit - see the video below.  Include Nelson as part of our South Island tour as a wonderful way to begin your PGNZ golf tour.
