The weekend is here and it's time for another one of our PGNZ Weekend Golf Getaways! Have a look at our full selection of weekend golf getaways here.

The Taranaki region on the west coast of the North Island is a beautiful rugged area, that was ranked by Lonely Planet as the second best region to visit in the world!

Looking over this beautiful part of the country is Mt Taranaki, a distinct stratovolcano, that resembles Mt Fuji in Japan.

Flying into New Plymouth late on a Friday afternoon, your first destination is The Waterfront Hotel, luxury waterfront accommodation in the heart of the CBD, featuring unrivalled views of the Tasman sea. 

The region has twenty golf clubs to choose from which you can see here.

Ngamotu, the New Plymouth Golf Course is a picturesque 5830 metre long Par 72 course that has hosted four New Zealand Open championships. A must play on a weekend golf getaway.

After admiring the golf course and the views and another night at the Waterfront, it's time to explore the region before heading back to the airport for your flight home.
