Awe-Inspiring Golf in New Zealand
The Cape Kidnappers Golf Course is magnificent, breathtaking and timeless. Located just outside of Napier, a little town in Hawke’s Bay New Zealand, it has again been named among the best in the world – at # 28 – in the 2018 Golf Digest (US) Magazine’s 200 Greatest International Golf Courses. The Golf Digest rankings are one of the most revered within golf course rankings. They include only one criterion, “overall greatness”.
New Zealand North Island is home to a stunning array of golf courses set in incredible locations, Cape Kidnappers being one of them. Go on a fully-escorted NZ North Island golf tour to play the superstars of the New Zealand landscape – courses designed by world-class architects such as Alistair MacKenzie, Tom Doak and Jack Nicklaus. This golf holiday is guaranteed to impress.
Completed in 2004, this spectacular New Zealand golf course has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. Built on a ridge-and-valley landscape and with stunning sea views, Cape Kidnappers Golf Course plays high above the ocean atop dramatic cliffs.
With cliff-edge fairways perched 140 metres above sea level and with a surface that remains firm and fast, this course offers holes, unlike anything you find elsewhere in the world. It is rustic, rugged and natural. While every hole has a spectacular view of the Bay, some play cautiously alongside deep ravines as others intimidate golfers with deep cliff top bunkers and sheer drops off the very edge of the earth.
The latest rankings are a testament to New Zealand’s draw as one of the great golfing destinations in the world. No longer a hidden gem, New Zealand is renowned as a “must visit” golf destination, with New Zealand recently awarded the Top Asia Pacific & Australasia Golf Destination Award by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), an award given to the country that delivers a great experience for golf travellers.
