The weekend is here! Time for golf, both on the course and on television!

Have you been watching the second round of the US Masters! Great viewing as players move up (and down) the leaderboard. We are looking forward to seeing the action live next year on our 2018 PGNZ US Masters tour. If you are interested in attending or would like to take a group of fellow golfers to this iconic tournament, contact us today.

Every Saturday we like to embark on some golf travel in New Zealand and curate fun little weekend getaways for our clients. Yesterday, we talked about golf and wine tours and a tour to Matakana. This is a good example of a weekend golf travel option heading north from Auckland.

Another option from Auckland is to head west from the Central CBD and visit the rugged west coast looking out across the Tasman sea towards Australia.

With the option of staying in luxury boutique accommodation, such as the Waitakere Estate, a golfing weekend in west Auckland is good value, fun and an enjoyable experience. This sort of weekend could suit a golfing couple keen to spend quality time together on or off the course!

There are a number of golf courses to choose from but we'll showcase three.

The Waitakere Golf Club is located right in the heart of the Waitakere Ranges, nestled amongst native bush and like many other courses in New Zealand, offers a beautiful serene peaceful golfing experience. With history back to the 19th century, it is a unique golfing venue. A short course (5140 metres) this is a perfect course for a weekend getaway.

Muriwai Golf Club is an 18 hole championship golf course located in Muriwai on the West Coast. A lovely scenic 40 minute drive from the Waitakere Estate, this course offers dramatic coastal views and a true golf links experience. An absolute must play on a weekend golf getaway.

Titirangi Golf Club is one of New Zealand's most famous marquee golf courses, the only Dr Alister McKenzie designed golf course in New Zealand. This course is a true test of ones golfing ability.
