Review for Wairakei

Reviewer Score:


I played this course in 2003 and was impressed enough to come back as thought it was magnificent back then . Fast forward to 2018, it's now not just a golf course but a beautiful animal sanctuary too. The front nine has streams and lakes a plenty whilst the back nine then adds stunning raised views aswell. Have not played all the courses ranked above Wairaeki in NZ but if they are any better than this place I'd be stunned. The greens were so fast and yet receptive also and the fairways were truly better than lots of clubs greens. Unlike other courses this is playable if you are not familiar with it. Having played quite a few courses on my visits to NZ I would still put this at the top of my NZ list when I come back
