Very impressed with the course, in excellent condition and challenging. We were short on time but the guy in the pro shop was very helpful, gave directions and went out of his way to assist. We will be back.

A great test of golf. 170+ bunkers on the course and very sloping greens and fairways. Best greens we've played in NZ. three best part is staying at the lodge on property. The villa' s are great.
