Wainui Golf Club

One of New Zealand's newest golf courses brings both a great challenge and great golfing option into the Auckland area

Since first breaking ground in 2013, much excitement has been focused on the development of Peninsula Golf Club's newest site in Wainui. Designed by Puddicombe & Assoc. (Lakes Resort Pauanui, Remuera, North Shore, Terrace Downs, Russley) this course is the latest to be constructed in New Zealand and plays at a very modern 7092 yards.

Placed on former farmland in an area about an hour's drive from Auckland, Wainui's architecture takes full advantage of the vast amount of ground dedicated to the project. This allowed for creativity in design, including additions like a man-made pond which bi-sects a double green between the 18th and the 9th.

With plans for tennis and fitness facilities and a 9 hole par-3 course, in addition the already built clubhouse, practice facility and driving range, Wainui GC should be on the list of places to visit while playing in Auckland.

Customer reviews

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.

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.
