After Monday comes Tuesday and then Wednesday and then the downhill slope all the way into a PGNZ Golf Weekend getaway! Which part of New Zealand will we be showcasing this time? Make sure to read our blog on Saturday.

Here are 18 thoughts (and some questions) for today's "Tuesday Travel Thoughts"

Front Nine:

1.) Cape Kidnappers is one of the best courses and luxury destinations in the world. Superlatives do not suffice. In terms of golf travel, this place is simply "the best".

2.) New Zealand has a number of world class golf courses that are must visits - see our list of marquee golf courses here.

3.) With over 400 courses, New Zealand also has a number of "hidden gems", experience golf courses that offer high quality golfing experiences. For example: Waitangi Golf Club or Omaha Golf Club in Matakana.

4.) Have you played "Waitangi Golf Club"?

5.) What is your favourite hotel chain to stay in? While in Auckland, our clients stay at either The Pullman, The Hilton, The Langham , Stamford Plaza or Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour - all premium five star accommodation.

6.) New Zealand's luxury lodges are regularly rated in the top bracket of the world. For example Huka Lodge is consistently rated in the top three of the world, and Helena Bay is receiving wide recognition for its supreme luxury. 

7.) Here is a comprehensive collection of New Zealand's luxury lodges.

8.) Playing golf and travelling around New Zealand on our tours can be done either as self-drive tours, guided or arranged. Helicopter transport is the most preferred choice as it is the best way to see the natural beauty of the country.
