Taupō Golf

Two nationally-ranked golf courses. Seven parkland-style golf courses. This is the Taupō nine; all defined by volcanic landscapes and spectacular lake views. 

Watch the ball soar while taking in the lush greenway, crystal-clear Lake Taupō, and entrancing mountains that form backdrop of each swing.

The perfect game

Play in the heart of New Zealand golf country, centred around two nationally-ranked golf courses. Award-winning Jack Nicklaus The Kinloch Golf Club Course is rated number three in New Zealand, while Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary comes in at number seven.

Beyond the championship fairways at The Kinloch Golf Club and Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary, the region boasts seven other courses. And every one breathtaking scenery. Two of the parkland courses lie just minutes from our 'big two' at Wairakei Resort 9 Hole Golf Course and another at Kinloch Village Golf Course. Or tee off at historic Taupō Golf Club, where two 18-hole courses offer a kiwi version of the famous “Amen Corner.”

While golfing in Taupō is undoubtedly world-class, the charming region has so much more to offer:

The Taupō region is a true golfer's paradise. The Taupō nine promise world-class golf experience waiting around every part of the lake.
