Wairakei is often touted by New Zealand Golfers as there favourite. The course itself is well designed, always in great condition and challenging but the draw cards are the jaw-dropping natural reserve in which you find yourself surrounded by.
Wairakei golf course has been skillfully designed to blend with the surrounding native bush. Prolific birdsong, picturesque scenery and a unique pest-proof sanctuary (the first of its kind) has led to Wairakei being recognised as New Zealand’s number one golf course.
The predator-free sanctuary offers a safe haven to fallow deer and many birdlife including mixed colour pheasants, guinea fowl, Peking ducks and our nation’s icon, the kiwi, which is all free to roam around the course.
