Omaha Beach Golf Club

Flanked by both the sea and inlet estuary this course is often overlooked by visiting international golfers

To an American the beaches of Omaha Beach Golf Club may remind one of the dunes on the Eastern Seaboard (South Carolina/ Georgia) rather than what typically Americans would associate with New Zealand. However, this in a way typifies New Zealand as a country- demonstrating so many different landscapes in such a short distance. And although this course does not get the same name recognition as others crafted by John Darby (Millbrook, Clearwater) it is an under-the-radar resort links course located in a stunning location by the sea- with an estuary to the West and the Pacific Ocean to the East.

Omaha Beach offers a nice getaway from Auckland and a piece of New Zealand frequented by locals but not often visited by the international tourist. The reason? When driving in the country locations north of Auckland (The Northland) typically require a loop back through the city. However with activities in the region like beautiful beaches, the Matakana area and its surrounding wineries, and the Goat Island maritime reserve there is much to see. Options also include playing in the morning out of Auckland and then continuing up the coast- the locker room, amenities and food options at the course allow players to seamlessly continue their day.

Its course first opened in 1975 as a nine-hole track. Now, a full round of golf reflects this history: players tee off on the first three original holes, cross a road to continue on nine new holes, and finish up the round on original holes 13-18.
