This is a delightful course to play, easy to walk, and interesting enough to hold your attention. You really have to be straight off the tee, as the fairways are narrow and the are many doglegs to you need to negotiate. Whilst no hole would be considered a classic, the third, a dog leg perched atop a ridge requires a precise tee shot, otherwise you are playing a wedge beck up the ridge just to see the green. I also thought all of its par 3s were challenging and interesting. Course condition was very good. And if you visit, make sure you go into the clubhouse, where the Maori influence is very much in there. It also boasts good views of the 18th and 10th, and is a pleasant place to sit back and recount all those doglegs you missed.
