Carrington Resort is located on the Karikari Peninsula in the far north of New Zealand. The tournament standard 18 hole Carrington Golf Course was inaugurated on December 15, 2003 and was designed by American golf course designer Matt Dye. The golf course is designed to accommodate golfers of all abilities and offers a great variety of hole play, from one of the longest par five’s in New Zealand at 605 metres (667 yards), to one of the shortest par three’s at 113 metres (132 yards) over water. Carrington also offers fine dining and lounge facilities, a guest lodge, tennis courts, a clay target shooting range and a swimming pool and spa. Spectacular views of the golf course, wetlands, Northland beach and ocean beyond are visible from the clubhouse and lounge complex. The clubhouse is sited on a high ridge in the middle of the golf course in order to take full advantage of the unique combination of vistas.
