Taupō golf

Two premier tracks and a smorgasbord of others to pick from, pack your clubs and head to Taupō to get your golf fix. Sign off and escape to where the roads are quieter, the air is fresher, the turf is firmer and where the ball flies true.

Get down to business, the business of golf

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. 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. 

The Kinloch Golf Club Course - championship fairways where Golden Bears once roamed, and just down the road 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.

If you prefer the lighter option, choose from one of our other seven courses. The Taupo Nine are easily accessed across the district, where you can relax your game among the achingly beautiful Central Plateau vistas and geothermal surrounds.

Taupō is calling, meet you there!

All kinds of golf for all kinds of golfers

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.
