Golf is the highest participation sport in NZ. There are 419 courses in New Zealand, and is overall very affordable. Whatever your budget, NZ has the course to meet your requirements.
Because NZ is a small country with a large number of golf courses, you never have to drive more than 45 minutes to play a round of golf. In most instances travel time would be substantially less than this. New Zealand offers a range of golfing experiences which include breath taking scenery, thermal activity, new resort style golf and the challenge of championship courses.
Depending on your length of stay and the type of challenge you are looking for, New Zealand has something to offer and you will be left with a desire to return to continue your golfing trek through one of the world’s best golfing destinations.
