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.

Customer reviews

We have returned from our trip to New Zealand, which went very well. I want to thank you for your expert help in planning the trip according to our interests. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and loved the beauty of the South Island.... many thank you's for your able assistance in tailoring the perfect trip for us.

—Karen F., Moraga, CA

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.
