Heading to Auckland for work next week and looking into some courses for the trip...

 

I've got days free so going to try and play daily.

 

Ive emailed Titirangi and Royal Aucklang/Grange

 

Any thoughts on the other courses around?

 

Looking at:

 

Windross Farm

Clarks Beach

Formosa

Howick

Remuera

 

Anyone local can recommend or anyone local can host me at Royal/Grange? please...?

Tara Iti is the most exclusive club in the country and you cannot play there without an invite (rarer than hens teeth) or fulfilling various other stipulations. There are of course a few exceptions depending on who you know and if you do get the chance im very envious.

 

Royal Auckland/Grange is currently undergoing a renovation after they merged so not sure on the conditions. Titirangi and Remuera are probably the top two courses on your list.

 

Im at Pupuke a club on the North Shore where Lydia Ko played which is an interesting little track in superb condition right now. If you were looking for another i would say that Muriwai would comparable to any of the top ones.

Appologies, I thought it was a resort. So if I have a chance to play it I shouldn't turn it down?

Tara Iti on the list, but I’m going to wait til another trip so I can request to stay for a few days. Think I can get access...but guests are apparently only allowed a one time visit. Can stay as long as you want but then that’s it.

 

I am going to hit Titirangi and will probably check out Muriwai and wind Ross. Any thoughts on Clark’s Beach or Gulf Harbour?

 

Thx! Will recap post trip.

In celebration of my wife retirement we are doing a 3 week trip of the North Island in February. Golf a big part but also including lots of time in Auckland and Wellington, Wine tours in Hawks' Bay and also going all the way up to Cape Reinga.

 

We are playing Windross, Wairakei, Cape Kidnappers, Paraparaumu and Kauri Cliffs...

If you're coming to Auckland I would play:

Windross (though greens have been cored this week I believe)

Titirangi

Gulf Harbour

 

Kinloch near Taupo is easily my favourite, as is Cape Kidnappers. But they're probably for another trip.

 

I wouldn't bother trying to get on Royal Auckland until they've finished their rebuild.

Tara Iti I wouldn't bother either, from non-member accounts it is spectacular looking but not much fun to play, they've struggled with their greens and the experience is very American which may appeal, IE your bag is replaced with a carry bag, caddy mandatory etc. Plus it's not easy to get on, hence why I haven't played it!

Wairakei is just down the road from Kinloch so worth the effort to play there as well. Wine tasting in Hawkes Bay is great but if you are driving from Hawkes Bay to Wellington, you are almost passing through Martinborough so call in there as well if you like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Tks for suggestion on Kinloch. We did consider it but can't fit it in. We are going to hit Martinborough on the way to Wellington. Our only "disappointment" is that the All Blacks will not be playing in NZ during our stay. We definitely would have wanted to see a game live.

Wairakei is an amazing place. They've turned it into a wildlife sanctuary so you may see some native birds while you are there. Apparently there are kiwis in there as well so if you see one, it's rarer than seeing the All Blacks play. If you only go to one winery in Martinborough, make it Ata Rangi. It would be one of our truly world class wineries. I don't think they are open for tastings as a rule but you can ring and make a time.

Just played Titirangi this am. Perfect day...sunny and breezy. That course is amazing...played with a local member and let him know how much he should appreciate a membership for so little compared to an LA club.

 

Kind of felt like playing in Jurassic Park especially the back 9.

 

Windross tomorrow and Mirawai Sunday.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
