Meet the team

Bringing you the best golf and travel in New Zealand

For 28+ years the Best of New Zealand team has traveled and organized bespoke itineraries for our clients. Originally focused throughout the late 1980s, and into the early 2000s, on fly fishing (bestofnzflyfishing.com) and independent travel (thebestofnewzealand.com) we expanded to include golf in conjunction with the first internationally renown courses being built in New Zealand.

Our direct relationships and personal experiences combine decades of experience.

Our small Los Angeles-based team is passionate about New Zealand. We discuss, plan and share experiences on a daily basis. Whether through communication with our partners in New Zealand, hosting meetings for Kiwis who fly into Los Angeles throughout the year, or taking our own trips.

We do not sell on dogma, but make every attempt to ensure accommodations are up to your standards while at the same time inspecting new properties, tours, activities and changes in ownership.

Frank Krieger leads Best of New Zealand Golf and is an avid golfer. He works with both club PGA professionals on group tours in addition to individual client trips. If you plan to visit New Zealand and play golf while in the country, please reach out!

Customer reviews

What a fabulous itinerary you made for us. It was perfect!

Wonderful country, delightful people, delicious food, and amazing scenery like no other. I guess our only major complaint is that we didn't have longer to see more of the country! You really planned it well for us. It felt balanced in the way of activities, driving days, photo opportunities, even some R&R in the afternoons.

—Vickie B, Los Angeles

I thank you for our wonderful trip to NZ. You and Bill are special people, and we look forward to keeping you as extended family! You are certainly welcome back anytime, and we will look forward to seeing your wonderful family if/when we get out to LA-- maybe Clippers in the playoffs? Blessings to your family.

I will get with Debi, and see which pictures make us look the youngest! If you need any "references or testimonials" that I could share, just let me know how I can help.
