Golf Vacations

New Zealand and golf have a long history. Scottish immigrants introduced the game in the South Island in the 19th century and their links-style courses still thrive today. British Open champion Sir Bob Charles and more recently Michael Campbell's win at the US Open in 2005 put New Zealand firmly in the modern golf spotlight. And golfing greats, the likes of Nick Faldo, Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman have trodden the fairways of New Zealand and praised their beauty and quality.

A number of the Lodges of New Zealand have either their own world class course set in outstanding locations or are close to some of New Zealand's premier courses and golf resorts – including two in the Golf Digest World Top 50 rankings.

The Lodges can arrange everything for you – from tee times to your favourite post game cocktail – to ensure a quality experience. All you have to worry about is the quality of your swing.
