Unique Destinations

Whether as a result of our own travel passions, the backgrounds of our team, our sister site The Best of New Zealand Fly Fishing, or our long standing relationship with Air New Zealand... we include in our itineraries locations throughout the South Pacific and to The Kingdom of Bhutan.

Yes. The Kingdom of Bhutan, which is so unique and special in its own right it deserves special mention.

And while the locations in this section are perhaps not considered "must-play" golfing destinations, we offer our services to those interested in experiencing novel destinations.

The Royal Thimpu Golf Club

A trip to Bhutan is likely not at the top of golfers bucket list however this small country in the Himalayas provides an experience in itself that is unique. Bhutan is a very gentle and remote place- and we feel that its people, culture, spirit and beauty are something to cherish and appreciate with or without golfing of fly fishing.

Think nothing of your handicap but instead appreciate the surroundings and distinct act of playing golf in the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Customer reviews

Highlights Of The Trip: Getting off the plane in Queenstown – overwhelmed with the beauty. The boat ride in Queenstown to experience the expansiveness.

The drive from Queenstown to Franz Joseph - the mountains and glacier lakes that went on forever. Our lunch spot that day at a campsite on a lake. Abel Tasman: this is where I want to return and spend a week to hike the entire trail. Spent the day biking in Napier to wineries.

It was a trip of a lifetime with truly unique beauty not found anywhere else. A New Zealand trip requires a specialist who knows the lay of the land the unique challenges of traveling and sight-seeing there.

The country looks a lot smaller than it really is, and travel times are longer than one can assume.

The route chosen by Cristina helped us maximize our time there. I’m usually a do it yourself traveler, but for this trip I’m sure glad I had Cristina at Best of New Zealand.
