Golfing in New Zealand

Playing golf in New Zealand is a leisurely and scenic experience, with some key differences that international visitors should note:

  • Often, golfers will walk the length of the golf course, enjoying the views as they go. Electric golf carts are available for hire at some golf courses but availability may be limited.
  • New Zealand golf courses don’t have caddies; instead, players will transport their own clubs in a trundler (hand cart) or golf cart.
  • In New Zealand you won’t find regular comfort stations on a golf course. Rather, players enjoy the facilities at the course’s clubhouse before and after the game. A clubhouse will usually include a bar, dining options, toilets and changing facilities.
