On the North Island and 25 minutes southwest of Napier is Hastings Golf Club also known as 'Bridge Pa' to the locals. This parkland course was redesigned in the 1970s but its history goes back to the late 1800's. This par-72 plays as an out-and-back with each featuring 2 par-5s and two par-3s.

Hosting a number of annual tournaments, the course neighbors an aerodrome so that participating golfers may park their private planes.

the toughest challenge on the course, with a slight dogleg to the right and an approach to a tiered green. Hitting the ball straight is important on this hole as there is OB on either side of the fairway. Par here and you are all smiles.

Customer reviews

My wife and I, along with Sandy and George, arrived home about two weeks ago from a trip to New Zealand that you facilitated. The four of us have been traveling together for 47 years after meeting in a small Bed & Breakfast in London in 1971.  We have traveled extensively in Europe, Canada, United States, and South America.

New Zealand was a distant stretch for us, and then we asked Julie for help on the recommendation of friends and she took us to you.  And that was our lucky day!

The five weeks we spent in New Zealand were possibly the most seamless, best organized trip we have ever experienced.  The accommodations were outstanding, everyone of them. The accommodations fit very well with the itinerary that we gave to you. Each and everyone exceeded our expectations from Auckland to Invercargill.  The people we met in the B&Bs were very accommodating and attentive to all of our needs. We did not consider them as hosts but rather New Zealand friends.  The food was excellent.  Tour suggested excursions were always right on target.

I believe the only thing that would have made the trip better was to stay longer.  This was meant to be a onetime experience, but already there has been suggestions of a return.

Thank you for your part of this fantastic adventure!

The Henley was incredible. What a find. Incredible grounds, the staff was waiting for us when we pulled up, great rooms, lovely breakfast. We could have stayed another day or two. Definitely the perfect place for us to recharge after the flight and a busy day... Everyone has been enjoying the trip.
