Huka Lodge Bucket List Golf Experience
Huka Lodge was founded in the 1920s by a charming Irishman, Alan Pye. He quickly established an unrivalled reputation for superb hospitality and trophy-size trout both of which still draw guests to Huka Lodge, Taupo, New Zealand, to this very day.
Over the years the Lodge has evolved into an iconic New Zealand property that has been consistently chosen as one of the top retreats in the world and is sought as an exclusive destination for the most discerning travellers.
Guests include members of European royal families, Hollywood stars and celebrities, Heads of State and Government and famous authors.
Huka Lodge has won many prestigious travel awards for over 30 years and these have created a reputation, at the highest level, for this magnificent property.
Huka Lodge is surrounded by magnificent natural beauty. The crystal clear waters of Lake Taupo are fed by mountain streams and are home to some of the most sought-after Rainbow trout in the world. The spectacular and mighty cascades of water forming the Huka Falls are a short walk from Huka Lodge, on the banks of the Waikato River.
Best of all, it has two world class golf courses at its doorstep.
Wairakei International Golf Course
A five-minute drive from Huka Lodge, the course lies on 450 acres of lush rolling countryside and was developed to meet the rigorous design standards required for world-class championship competition. You will navigate your way through 18 testing holes of exceptional beauty and lulled by the sounds of the birdlife, meandering streams and waterfalls.
Kinloch Signature Golf Course
A 20-minute drive from Huka Lodge, it is New Zealand’s only course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The Kinloch Club was voted one of the Top 10 new golf courses in the world for 2007 by the prestigious U.S. Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine, making it the only course outside of North America to be included.
