Whilst the course is beautifully presented (once you get there - it is 8km from the main gate to the clubhouse), we felt that it did not live up to the hype. We played 8 courses in New Zealand during our visit and this was neither the best nor the most memorable. We had a caddy, which was helpful in part (mainly in relation to the grain on the greens) but a hindrance in other respects. Good, but not somewhere that one leaves thinking that one must go back and give it another go.
