Premium Golf NZ Summer Series
The 2017 Premium Golf NZ Summer Series has now finished and we greatly thank all those passionate and keen golfers who participated in this fun filled and exciting four event tournament, especially those who traveled from outside of Auckland.

Howick Golf Club is located in East Auckland and offers superb and dramatic golfing along the peninsula cliff tops, commanding spectacular panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf islands including Rangitoto, with the North Shore in the distance and a glimpse of the Sky Tower and the Waitemata Harbour.
Howick is a real "hidden gem" in the Auckland golf region and a must play for all visiting golfers.
Titirangi Golf Club is New Zealand's only Alister MacKenzie designed golf club. A walking course, this innercity golfing delight is a must play for all purist golfers. Tradition and heritage blend seamlessly into the serene peaceful course settings.
Complete with its own "Amen corner", Titirangi is a championship golf course that requires thought, skill and determination. Bring your A game or the course will deliver you your B game!
Akarana, just off State Highway 20, is Auckland's perennial golf course achiever, host to numerous New Zealand professional and amateur opens. A warm and welcoming course, steeped in history and peopled by famous names, golfers and characters, Akarana is a vibrant and happening club. One's round here always ends up in the 19th with happy and content conversations and much earned imbibing of New Zealand's finest ales, wines and spirits.
Maungakiekie Golf Club is Auckland's friendliest golf club. One of Auckland's oldest clubs, designed by legendary British designer Charles Alison, the iconic clubhouse full of characters and personalities, grandly overlooks the course and has stunning views westwards towards the Waitakere ranges. Beautifully countoured and fairways and greens nestle themselves under beautiful natives trees and the sounds of birds and wildlife add to a pleasant golfing experience.
