My first drive ended up in the middle of the geothermal hazard. Fortunately it went up from there! This was a challenging course with lots of interesting twists, the pro was very helpful. We had a great time.

After heavier and more rain than normal for the region you would hardly notice on this course. A good test of golf on a well established course. Worth a visit, especially in winter when your own course is soft and wet

Fantastic course with great pumice drainage. It’s been a very wet year but you don’t know it on this course. Hope to complete back 9 tomorrow 👍👍 Scenic course with a lot of undulations.

Course seemed very bouncy and rough in a cart. You will pay top dollar for a golf experience that is not great by Australian standards. The staff at pro shop are very helpful and the course is trying-but the surface feels like it was a...More

Although not in the 'top ten' of golf courses in NZ, we enjoyed the course very much. As a 12 handicapper I found it represented a fair challenge. The greens are excellent and a good number of bunkers and trees all added to the need...More
