Kauri Cliffs is located in the Bay of Islands and was designed and built by David Harman of Golf Course Consultants, Orlando, Florida. The par 72 championship golf course measures 7,119 yards/6,510 metres and offers five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Fifteen golf holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. At Kauri Cliffs, the beautiful inland golf holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland.
Kauri Cliffs recently underwent a renovation from world renowned golf course architect Rees Jones. The 5th hole received a complete redesign and was transformed from a long, uphill, forced carry par-3 to a short “drop shot” par-3. Other notable changes were the addition of tees on the 2nd and 9th holes and a bunker renovation on the 4th hole. The golf complex includes a world-class practice range, putting and chipping greens, a well stocked golf shop and ladies’ and mens’ locker rooms. Callaway ladies’ and mens’ rental clubs are available. Kauri Cliffs is currently ranked #39 in the world by Golf Digest Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World.
