Golf in Great Lake Taupo

Great Lake Taupo, located in the centre of New Zealand's North Island, punches well above its weight in terms of quality golf courses. There are nine golf courses within the region.

In fact, the Jack Nicklaus designed Kinloch Club, and Wairakei Golf and Sanctuary are consistently ranked in New Zealand’s top 10 golf courses.

The world renowned fairways have been built in harmony with the beautiful natural contours of the land. The free-draining soils in the Great Lake Taupo region mean you can enjoy an excellent game of golf all year round. 

If you are short on time, practice your swing at Lake Taupo Hole In One Challenge. Hit your golf ball 100 metres over Lake Taupo and into one of the holes on the floating pontoon and you could win up to $10,000!
