    Exclusive golf at the other end of the world

    Tue 22.12.2020 Tauranga, New Zealand – Fairway Golf Club 
    The course was founded in 1904 and has so far moved three times in 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. Players should watch out for the water on the first nine fairways, which are rather short. On the second nine fairways, long, accurate shots are required. All in all, a course that demands concentration and skill.

    Thu 24.12.2020 Napier, New Zealand – Cape Kidnappers Golf Club (nine holes) 
    These 18 spectacular holes sit right on the steep New Zealand coast at 150 m (492 ft) above sea level. Unique experiences of golf and nature await, particularly when the sprawling greens come to an end on the steep coastline. Make sure to pack your camera in your golf bag to capture these special moments. 
    Please note: due to the short lay time, you will play nine holes today.

    Sat 26.12.2020 Wellington, New Zealand – Royal Wellington Golf Club 
    This parkland course befits its status as a royal golf club. The fairways, which are sometimes very narrow, guide players to greens filled (in places) with many bunkers. They demand undivided attention when it comes to course management. The old golfing rule still applies here – small clubs equal great control!

    Sun 27.12.2020 Lyttelton, New Zealand – Clearwater Golf Club - Additional course 
    Completed in 2002, this 18-hole course is located north of the city of Christchurch. While it might be in the centre of the country, the course is designed to offer plenty of surprises thanks to its many water hazards. A total of 13 of the 18 fairways have water along their sides, which seems to cast a magical spell of attraction for the ball.

    Tue 29.12.2020 Port Chalmers, New Zealand – Otago Golf Club 
    A total of 18 generous fairways await on one of New Zealand’s oldest golf courses. The main challenge on this course comes from the natural features that give the fairways direction and structure. Concentrate as you play and the bunkers in front of the greens shouldn’t divert you from a perfect score.

    On this Golf trip on board: Hanna Baum-Proske

    PGA golf pro

    Born in Berlin in 1982, Hanna Baum-Proske has the highest grade from the PGA (G1) as well as a level-A trainer licence from the DGV. One of her main areas of focus is golf fitness and health.

    Participants can look forward to a golf adventure in the Tasman Sea. The route heads from New Zealand’s North Island, across the South Island and to the eastern coast of Australia. The golf on offer is just as varied as the geography that you can marvel at along the way.
