New Zealand is a country of awe inspiring landscapes, lush forests, glacial mountains, amazing wildlife and a rather pleasant climate, which makes NZ a haven for vigorous outdoor activities… and also a great place to chill out. Kiwis are frank and honest folk and that’s one of the great delights and strengths of this stunning country. The other great delight is that the Kiwis have utilised this awesome land to the full and built some world-class golf courses.
There are currently 397 golf courses in NZ and according to New Zealand Golf, the country’s governing body, almost 500,000 adults play golf each year in NZ, making golf the highest participation sport in the country. It’s the No.1 one sport for men and the No.2 sport for women just behind netball. We are surprised, given the popularity of golf in New Zealand, that nobody has yet produced a New Zealand Top 100. We’d love to achieve that feat and with help it’s possible.
