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

We are near the end of our New Zealand trip. It has been terrific and amazing. Each stop was unique. First at Tara Iti... now Cape Kidnappers. It is perfectly designed and managed. Great staff and service.The golf course is beautiful and the Kiwi hunt very special... Thank for your help in all the planning.
