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

From all of us, thank you for a fabulous trip to New Zealand! We cannot begin to tell you how much we loved everything you put together for us! Every detail ran like clock work and each lodge was better than the last! A highlight was our daughter’s engagement at Cape Kidnappers where we were spoiled by the staff to a lovely wine cellar dinner! But add that to all the heli fishing and fine golf everywhere, we could not have had a more memorable, special trip! Many thanks for a great job on the part of you and your team.

We could not have been happier with this trip! The Best of New Zealand, you and Frank, did an outstanding job planning our itinerary, and making this the trip of our dreams! All of the accommodations were superb, and the time coordination of flights, driving, etc. was great! It really allowed for a stress-free and fun vacation. We really felt like we experienced New Zealand at it’s very best, and would highly recommend you to all of our friends! We hope to return someday!

Thank you again!
