Welcome to Wednesday, the middle of the week where Monday seemed like such a long time ago and Friday seems so far away!

Yesterday, PGNZ went on a familiarisation visit to Wainui Golf Club, located 15 minutes north of central Auckland. Wainui, meaning "big water" or "big bay" in Te Reo Maori, is one of New Zealand's newest marquee golf courses.

What are marquee golf courses? Find out here.

We will be doing a full blog post review of Wainui in the near future but see the video and image gallery below.

Wainui is a beautiful course set in a very peaceful rural setting. It has a championship 18 hole course and a beginner friendly all Par 3 9 hole course that weaves its ways through a feijoa orchard.
