Bay of Islands Luxury Golf Package


    Add a header to begin generating the table of contents


    Stay for five days at the award-winning Kauri Cliffs Lodge in Northern New Zealand. Perched atop Matatauri Bay on the North Island’s Bay of Islands, Kauri Cliffs is a five-star golf resort with a golf course rated by Golf Digest as the 49th best in the world. Its location is even better than its ranking; lush green islands spring out of the bay in haphazard formations that enhance the destinations’ serenity.


    Play golf four times over the week: twice at Kauri Cliffs, once at the nearby Bay of Islands, and once at Waitangi Golf Club. Your luxury golf package is all about unwinding and enjoying the slow pace of the Bay of Islands with a few rounds of leisurely golf. Play a round in the morning or afternoon, and spend the rest of your days exploring nearby attractions, walking through forests or along beaches. Enjoy the culinary delights cooked in the Kauri Cliffs kitchen, or if you want to charter a fishing boat, enjoy a BBQ with your catch on the beach. We recommend the Bay of Islands golf package for couples with either 2-8 people in your travelling party, but we can tailor it to suit the needs of any group.

    Kauri Cliffs Golf Course

    Once reaching 37 in the world, and sitting currently at 49th by Golf Digest, the Kauri Cliffs golf course is an unforgettable masterpiece with views just as good as the course design. The golf course was designed by USA architect David Harman, with recent renovations overseen by Rees Jones. The golf course was designed with a mind to keep the natural setting in place with the best views on optimal holes. The Kauri Cliffs golf course is one of the most sought-after in the Australia and New Zealand region. The ability to play it twice on the same trip will enable a level of intimacy with the course that will not be forgotten.


    Waitangi Golf Course

    Situated just metres from the site where the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi was signed, the Waitangi golf course resides along the coastline of The Bay of Islands. Stunning Bay views stretch from the Bay of Islands, to Russell, then inland to Opua and Mount Bledisloe. A surreal experience, the Waitangi Golf Course is a fun 18-hole course that reminds you that you are in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.


    Bay of Islands Golf Course

    An interesting parkland golf course, the Bay of Islands Golf Club is laid out on the side of a hill, though it appears flat. The 18-hole route incorporates elevation changes from tees to greens, although many fairways appear to run over flat terrain. The golf course features sharp doglegs, target greens protected by runoffs and bunkers, numerous lakes and tree-lined fairways. The Bay of Islands Golf Course is a great complement to any Kauri Cliffs golf package.

    The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

    One of the highest-rated resorts in the world, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs characterises five-star luxury. Perched atop a ridgeline that descends into its world-class golf course and the Bay of Islands, The Lodge features a small number of bespoke suites and cottages with a distinct Hamptons-feel. Whitewashed walls and light earthy tones feature in the suites and cottage artwork and furniture. The light and welcoming atmosphere of the rooms are enhanced by rich green grass surrounding the property.


    Guests can choose from various dining spaces throughout the property: all are small and intimate but offer something different in regards to atmosphere and views. The facilities include a world-class spa on the edge of a Totara forest that overlooks a verdant fern glen and winding stream. A lap pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gymnasium and treatment rooms will ensure you leave feeling whole and tranquil. The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is sublime year-round, though we recommend spring and summer for the best weather.

    While staying at Kauri Cliffs, consider the following activities:

    • Sea-Kayaking – Explore the crystal-clear waters of the Bay of Islands
