Lake Taupo Hole in One Challenge


Golf inspires us to try things we never thought we could do. Swing by and take on the famous Hole in One challenge by hitting golf balls out onto a floating pontoon on Lake Taupō to win the ultimate prize of $10,000 cash! Play like a champion today.

Kia ora and welcome to the Lake Taupō Hole in One Challenge. We are an iconic drop in tourism activity in the heart of Te Ika a Maui – the North Island of Aotearoa. Established in 1993, the idea was born out of a conversation in a bar and written on the back of a beer coaster. In 2017 Lake Taupō Hole in One Challenge became the first tourism acquisition for local Iwi (tribe) – Ngāti Tūwharetoa. Locals and Kiwis have repeatedly made this their ritual stop while tourists from far and wide enjoy the thrill and excitement of trying to get a hole-in-one. We average a hole in one every two weeks.
