Kauri Cliffs

Kauri Cliffs is one of those surreal golf experiences that avid golfers should experience at least once in their lifetime. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland.

Kauri Cliffs is one of those surreal golf experiences that avid golfers should experience at least once in their lifetime. From the moment you drive into the property and head down towards the onsite accommodation at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs you feel as though you are the only person on the planet.

Kauri Cliffs is located four and a half hours north of Auckland in the Bay of Islands region and its absolute ocean frontage ensures uninterrupted views on many of the golf holes as well as from the Lodge itself.

In fact fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs, which plunge into the sea. These spectacular views can help to ease the pain of a bad golf round and you should arm yourself with a camera as countless opportunities arise for memorable photos during the round.

So what about the golf course itself? Well aside from the fifteen Pacific Ocean holes there are 3 beautiful inland holes which wind their way through marsh, forest, and farmland. The eighteen holes combine to form an interesting, enjoyable and sometimes challenging test of golf. The four sets of tees allow the golfer to choose how much fun they would like to have during the round. Kauri Cliffs is a very playable golf course which can be enjoyed by all standard of golfers.

Kauri Cliffs was also awarded Best New International Golf Course 2001 by Golf Digest and recently selected 58th Best Golf Course in the World by the accepted authority, US Golf Magazine.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 402m

A straight away par 4. A tee shot left centre of fairway gives the best approach into the green. Be aware of the bunker and sever drop off on the left side of the green.

2
Par 4, Length 403m

The rough on the left angles sharply inward. A good drive should be hit just inside the bunkers on the right. Be cautious of the severe drop-offs to the left and back of the green.

3
Par 4, Length 326m

A great "little" golf hole with a wide open fairway. The challenge on this hole is the short second shot to a well guarded, undulating green.

4
Par 5, Length 510m

One of the great par 5's in golf. Aim tee shot inside left hand bunkers. Longer hitters will have the option of going for the green in two. Laying up, be aware of the narrowing landing area and hazard on the right.

5
Par 3, Length 183m

Less adventurous golfers should aim at the small fairway on the left hand side of the green. Consider an extra club, as you cannot afford to be short.

6
Par 4, Length 370m

A tee shot aimed to the left centre of the fairway leaves the best approach to the green. The green is elevated and very deep; so take this into consideration when selecting a club.

7
Par 3, Length 201m

Club selection is crucial on this demanding par 3. Don't let the views distract you.

8
Par 5, Length 493m

Aim your tee shot to the left centre of the fairway. A very long, narrow green greets you, fiercely protected by bunkers on the left.

9
Par 4, Length 353m

A severely uphill par 4 completes the front nine. Don't let the gully "bully" you, for a good tee-shot will easily carry. The tendency is to under club the second shot. This is a deep green where an extra club won't hurt.

10
Par 4, Length 333m

Aim tee-shot right centre of the fairway. Be aware of the hazard on the left of the fairway, which wraps around the back edge of the green.

11
Par 4, Length 385m

Aim tee-shot right centre of sloping fairway. A precise approach shot is necessary to this well guarded "island like" green. Shorter hitters should lay up short of the marsh.

12
Par 3, Length 192m

Anything short or left spells trouble on this wide, shallow, two tiered green.

13
Par 4, Length 390m

Aim your tee-shot right of the Totara trees in the far distance. This landing area will provide you with a good look at the well bunkered green.

14
Par 3, Length 211m

This long downhill par 3 overlooks the Cavalli Islands. The green is protected by deep bunkers on the right and a severe drop off on the left.

15
Par 5, Length 498m

The cliffs on the left and narrow fairway demand an accurate tee-shot. Longer hitters can reach this green in two.

16
Par 4, Length 335m

A tee-shot on the right hand side of the fairway leaves a short downhill approach. Very long hitters may risk the hazards and drive the green.

17
Par 4, Length 432m

On the tee, don't bite off more than you can chew. The large deep green will readily receive a long iron or wood.

18
Par 5, Length 493m

Drives to the left spell trouble here. Continue to favour the right side of the fairway but be mindful of the bunker 110 meters out.
