Golf in New Zealand

There are more than more than 400 golf courses, they include paddock-style fairways to the luxurious courses at Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers. Indeed a golf hungry nurse or doctor will find a country with the highest number of golf courses per capita in the world.

Courses overlooking snowy mountains, stunning lakes or with cliff-top sea views, make for some of the greatest golf locations in the world. The North and South Islands are both home to a number of internationally acclaimed golf courses and cater for beginners to experts.

New Zealand’s reputation for hospitality extends to welcoming visitors at most clubs, though booking is recommended. It is generally an inexpensive country in which to play golf with green fees ranging from NZ$15-$120 at the top courses.

Doctors and nurses wanting to get away from the mainstream clubs should sample the country courses, which often have a Farm Manager rather than a Greens Superintendent.
