PaR nz Golfing Holidays is excited to introduce ‘The 2018 Bay of Islands 4 Course Golf Classic’.
This is a new tournament in Northland, New Zealand’s sub-tropical north and will be played on an annual basis! The area along with being a great golf destination is home to a unique marine paradise, sheltered white sandy beaches, natural Kauri forests, a vibrant Maori culture, and history, where the foundations of New Zealand as a nation were laid.
This new multi-course tournament combines playing one of the world’s best courses, Kauri Cliffs along with some of Northland’s best club courses including, The Bay of Islands Golf Club, Waitangi Golf Club, and Whangaroa Golf Club.
The tournament gives golfers the rare opportunity to play Kauri Cliffs in a competition format for a special rate (attractive to both local and international golfers). Kauri Cliffs is ranked #49 in the world (Golf Digest’s World’s 100 Greatest Courses). In 2017, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs was named the #1 Resort in Australia and New Zealand as well as #4 in the World by Travel & Leisure Magazine. It is a course that should be on every golfer's bucket list and is a PaR nz Golfing Holidays favourite!
