Kauri Cliffs boasts a par 72, championship golf course and offers five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Currently ranked 39th in Golf Digest's 'Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World', there has been a renovation on the course from the world-renowned golf course architect, Rees Jones. This course is set in outstanding scenery with fifteen holes viewing the Pacific Ocean, including six lined up alongside cliffs that reach down to the sea, whilst inland holes wind through forest, marsh and farmland. Hire a set of premium clubs and head to the world-class practice range, putting and chipping greens to hone your game, and then visit the excellent golf shop.
Take to New Zealand's inspiring outdoors. The lodge team are on hand to suggest and organise any activities you may wish to try, from nature walks where you visit a beautiful waterfall, to a game of tennis or mountain-biking - there's something for everyone. Visit Kauri Cliff's working farm, as the farm manager guides you around the stunning 6,000 acres of impressive farmland filled with an abundance of different farm animals.
Kauri Cliffs' private beaches provide a beautiful and picturesque setting for picnics, including at the striking Pink Beach, which is surrounded by splendid Pohutukawa trees. Waiaua Beach, with its incredible white sand, is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and fishing. Experience New Zealand's most incredible and attractive untouched scenery atop your surfboard and discover tiny coves, point breaks, sandbars, long sandy beaches, river mouths and reefs. Let a chef cook an extraordinary private barbecue on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, as you tuck into freshly grilled seafood or succulent lamb.
