A great day out from the conference. Course in great condition as normal and a great test of golf made more difficult with the wind. One of the better courses and a must if in Rotorua

Golf on 30 October on trip from Australia. A strong challenge when played from the back blue markers, ladies almost as long on some holes from yellow markers. Fairways have many undulations and small mounds to make shots interesting. Greens very good and true. Suggest...More
