Find the safety of the middle of the fairway and the options just open up. That’s Taupō, centrally located, with options galore at your disposal. Taupō has nine golf courses (The Taupō Nine) to choose from ranging from pristine, world-class, premiere golf courses to simpler, family-friendly options. 

Chase the thrill of the perfect shot over difficult terrain, or take the scenic route more kind underfoot. It’s all there for you to choose from. 

Looking for the best golf course Taupō has to offer?

Taupō boasts two world-famous golf courses. The Kinloch Golf Club Course - championship fairways where Golden Bears once roamed and being recognised '2023 World Golf Awards - New Zealand's #1 Golf Course'.

Down the road is the evergreen and distractingly beautiful Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary, where you walk among wildlife in a predator-free, championship golf enclosure. Two world renowned icons of New Zealand golf with scenery, birdies and tee times in abundance.

Need something a little more entry-level or family-friendly?

If you are looking for a beginner-friendly and family-oriented golfing option, then it's worth considering the Kinloch Village Golf Club. It’s conveniently located near the esteemed Kinloch Golf Club. This inviting 10-hole course provides the opportunity for a pleasant outing for golfers at any level of expertise.

Whilst playing your way through the course, enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of the nearby fields and hills. The Kinloch Village Golf Club is especially noted for its casual, friendly environment, making it a great place for a casual game of golf.

While golf in Taupō is undoubtedly world-class, the charm extends beyond the fairways:

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