The Bay of Plenty, with its vast stretch of curving coastline, is one of the most popular New Zealand golfing regions and the Bay of Plenty’s warm temperatures make it a great New Zealand holiday destination. Aside from practicing your swing at any of the Bay of Plenty’s world class golf courses the New Zealand golfing region is a great area to surf, fish, relax, shop and enjoy life Down Under.
The Bay of Plenty's main towns Tauranga and Mt Maunganui are increasingly popular for weekend's away as is Rotorua'a active geothermal area.
The Lake Taupo region has possibly the best courses on offer out of any town in New Zealand. With Wairakei, Kinloch and the popular Taupo Centennial and Tauhara courses. Taupo is only a short drive to the World Heritage area Tongariro National Park.
And then there are the Bay of Plenty golf courses.
“With some courses in the Bay of Plenty set in bush land and others on active geothermal sites, it is tough to choose the best of the 26 pristine golf courses in this golfer’s paradise. The Bay of Plenty has quite possibly the highest number of quality golf courses of any New Zealand region.” - Mark Smith, Play New Zealand Golf.
