Hotel in Taupo

Wairakei International Golf Course

Designed by John Harris, Michael Wolveridge and Peter Thomson, a 5-time winner of the Open Championship, this historic course opened in 1970 as the country’s only internationally recognised course. In 2010, it was voted the best golf course in New Zealand. With 108 bunkers and 6,460 metres of undulating fairways, it provides a challenge for everyone, from amateur hackers to seasoned professionals. If you’re one of the former, you might like to hone your skills on the hotel’s less-formidable 9 holes before tackling the full 18 on Wairakei International Golf Course. Rounds start from NZD 155 for golfers registered with a club in New Zealand or NZD 210 for international golfers who are club members in their home country.
