Tara Iti

Tom Doak considers Tara Iti his best work to date so there is no surprise why this Golf Course has taken the world by storm. Tara Iti is already considered the best Golf Course in New Zealand and has also made some World’s top 10 lists.

Doak designed a links course that seamlessly blends into the neighbouring Te Arai Beach. A unique course with undulating fairways that weave their way between white sand dunes and native tussock. The Greens are large in general with an exaggerated undulation. The course has been commended for providing a challenge, however, if you find your way wide of the fairway you will not be penalised, rather be playing you next shot from hard sand.

Although this course is private and exclusive, it retains a quintessential New Zealand feel; relaxed, friendly and welcoming. The service, facilities and caddies are at the level you expect from one of the Worlds best courses.

Tara Iti is a private golf club so a letter of introduction is required to apply for a tee time. Contact Experience Golf and apply today.
