The Cape Kidnappers Golf Course and Resort is magnificent, breathtaking, and timeless. I was attracted to Cape Kidnappers Golf Course years ago after watching a series entitled The Ten Best Golfing Destinations In The World. The pictures of a golf course sitting high atop a windswept plateau on bluffs of finger like ridges stuck in my mind. Cape Kidnappers Golf Course... More

We both really enjoyed playing this course and, thankfully, the wind had dropped on the day we played. The views are stunning and the course was very well maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's expensive to play but, it was a great experience.

This course is one of the most beautiful I have ever played. It was challenging, but the views made it fun to play. The staff was very good and we had a nice lunch on the patio. I highly recommend this course.

My husband treated himself to a game of golf, the views are spectacular and the drive to the clubhouse quite a nice drive - lots of animals to spot. The guys felt that they were blown away by another golf location near Taupo when compared to this one. It was more of a said that they had played this course.

We played a round of golf at Cape Kidnappers. Very nice and challenging course. The green fee is much to high for what you get, you can easily play similar courses in Ireland or Scotland for halve the price. Ok for a once in your lifetime round but not for more at this price level. Staff was very attentive and... More

This is the best golfing experience we have ever had! The course is very well maintained and the setting can not be topped.if we could only play one more round in our lives this would be the course we would choose to play. The staff was helpful and the after round lunch was delicious .

As it is rated 27th best course in the world I expected it to be outstanding. The views, particularly on the back 9, are spectacular. However I think the course is good but far from great. To be fair they warned me the greens were being worked and as a result were sandy. They gave a discount but I still... More

Despite being rather windy this was an unbelievable experience. Great course with unbelievable views. Course was recently cored but still played fantastically. Staff at the club house great. Food and alcohol good and quite reasonably priced
