Kauri Cliffs is one of those surreal golf experiences that avid golfers should experience at least once in their lifetime. From the moment you drive into the property and head down towards the onsite accommodation at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs you feel as though you are the only person on the planet.
Kauri Cliffs is located four and a half hours north of Auckland in the Bay of Islands region and its absolute ocean frontage ensures uninterrupted views on many of the golf holes as well as from the Lodge itself.
In fact fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs, which plunge into the sea. These spectacular views can help to ease the pain of a bad golf round and you should arm yourself with a camera as countless opportunities arise for memorable photos during the round.
So what about the golf course itself? Well aside from the fifteen Pacific Ocean holes there are 3 beautiful inland holes which wind their way through marsh, forest, and farmland. The eighteen holes combine to form an interesting, enjoyable and sometimes challenging test of golf. The four sets of tees allow the golfer to choose how much fun they would like to have during the round. Kauri Cliffs is a very playable golf course which can be enjoyed by all standard of golfers.
Kauri Cliffs was also awarded Best New International Golf Course 2001 by Golf Digest and recently selected 58th Best Golf Course in the World by the accepted authority, US Golf Magazine.
