Taupo, Turangi & Tongariro Golf
International Golf Courses, Local Golf Clubs and Family Fun Golf
While visiting the Taupo region, enjoy a round of golf in this beautiful geothermal landscape of endless forests, rolling hills, mountains and mud pools. Come and enjoy a relaxing day of golf in the crisp beautiful fresh air on this high North Island plateau. The world renowned fairways have been built in harmony with the beautiful natural contours of the land.
Taupo boasts of several golf courses, the famous Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary which has undergone a $ 2 million Ecological Restoration Project to be a beautiful environment for plants, birdlife, and recreation and the award-winning The Kinloch Club golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus.
At the southern end of the lake, the Turangi Golf Club is gaining a reputation as an attractive course with 18 holes, par 72 from both tees. The course is reasonably flat and has water features and good tree coverage. Autumn is a spectacular time with the tree foliage showing amazing colours.
Or have a round of golf on the highest course in New Zealand! The Chateau Tongariro Golf Course is located right in front of the main hotel building and is an easy-walking 9-hole course, with three towering active volcanoes, a World Heritage Park and the grand Chateau Tongariro as your backdrop.
At the northern end of the lake we have the Mangakino Golf Club, a flat undulating 9-Hole easy walking course with picturesque views of Lake Maraetai and the surrounding forests.
|If you are short on time but want to practise your swing, try the Lake Taupo Hole In One Challenge located at Taupo's lakefront. Rated as one of the TOP 100 things to do in New Zealand, it is truly a unique experience and challenge for professional and amateur golfers alike. They average a hole in one every two weeks and if you're skillful enough, you can win NZD10,000 if you get a hole-in-one at the red flag. Good luck!|
