Tue 12.02 TAURANGA – FAIRVIEW COUNTRY CLUB (ADDITIONAL COURSE 1)
Founded in 1904, this club has moved three times within the local area. The existing 18 holes were redesigned in 1968 by the legendary architect Robert Trent Jones to fit the current terrain. Some of the beautifully tended fairways are lined with mature trees. The extremely wide, rather strongly modulated fairways do not always work in your favour. On the second nine fairways, long, accurate shots are required. All in all, a course that demands concentration and skill.
Thu 14.02 NAPIER – CAPE KIDNAPPERS GOLF COURSE
This course requires a great deal of concentration from players. The 18th hole is situated high up on a plateau, right on the east coast of the North Island. The holes were designed to fit the local terrain. Each ball position gives rise to new, spectacular views, which can easily distract players from the task at hand. As well as a few extra balls, make sure you pack your camera!
Fri 15.02 WELLINGTON – ROYAL WELLINGTON GOLF CLUB
Situated in the uplands of the “Windy City”, this city course was opened in 1895 and redesigned in 2013. This 18-hole parkland golfing adventure is often exposed to the wind. The extremely wide, rather strongly modulated fairways do not always work in your favour. The round is traditionally opened by a starter who keeps an eye on the players’ feet. Only white golf socks and shoes with soft spikes are permitted. However, white knee socks are preferred.
Sat 16.02 KAITERITERI/NELSON – NELSON GOLF CLUB (ADDITIONAL COURSE 2)
This classic links course, which challenges players with some remarkably long holes, is situated next to Tasman Bay between the city of Nelson and the local airport. Due to its exposed location right next to the sea, a third natural factor – the wind – often comes into play.
Mon 18.02 LYTTLETON – CLEARWATER GOLF CLUB
This is a demanding parkland course. Eleven of the fairways are bordered by water. In addition, most of the fast plateau greens feature various bunkers. But players who manage to play with straight shots can expect a very enjoyable round of golf. The teeing grounds overlooking the fairways provide clear orientation, so players are aware of the course of play from the beginning.
Wed 20.02 PORT CHALMERS – CHISHOLM PARK GOLF CLUB
This links course on the west coast of the South Island could almost be Scottish and seems to defy the forces of nature. Concentrated play is challenging due to the many breathtaking views along the course, so it is important to manage your game well.
Mon 25.02 HOBART – ROYAL HOBART GOLF CLUB
The Royal Hobart Golf Club is not far from the capital. First laid out in 1916, this 18-hole course has undergone complete modernisation – most recently in 1997. Nowadays, wide fairways, large, fast greens and 80 strategically placed bunkers await players. This is the course where Jack Nicklaus won the Australian Open in 1971. Play takes place between bushland and the Indian Ocean. It is likely to appeal to ambitious golfers!
Wed 27.02 MELBOURNE – HUNTINGDALE GOLF CLUB
This undulating 18-hole parkland course in the Australian outback has strict rules. Right from the first tee, the starter checks that players are complying with the local regulations. Both men and women must wear their golf shirt tucked into their trousers or shorts. Shorts must be knee-length – shorter or longer lengths are not permitted. Men should wear knee socks – or white socks, at least – with nothing printed or embroidered on them. After this initial check, things get better, with generous, wide fairways (rather undulating in some places) that end in similarly generous greens. Provided that you adhere to the club’s rules, you can expect a very relaxing round of golf.
