Taupo Golf

Set in lakeside locations, surrounded by rolling hills, native birds and mountainous backdrops, golfing in Taupo is not only world-class but has the added bonus of breathtaking scenery.

Taupo could be considered a golfer’s paradise with its nine reputed golf courses – two of which are consistently ranked in the top 100 courses outside the US, and top 10 marquee courses in New Zealand.

From the rugged tussock-covered hills and lakeside location at the award-winning Jack Nicklaus-designed Kinloch Club Golf Course with its onsite luxury lodge and exquisite food and wine, to the lush countryside of the predator-free sanctuary of Wairakei Golf and Sanctuary, where you might be lucky enough to spot a dashing pheasant or wandering fallow deer.

The smaller courses in Taupo town, Turangi, Mangakino, Kinloch and Wairakei all have unique charm, and if you don’t have time for a day on the fairways, but love to practice your swing, the Lake Taupo Hole in One challenge could win you up to $10,000 if you manage to hit your ball into a hole on the floating pontoon on the lake.
