With its rolling green hills, soaring cliffs and shimmering lakes, New Zealand is a spectacular natural playground for golf, rivalling even Scotland for its windswept beauty.

Arguably New Zealand’s finest golfing destination is Cape Kidnappers, a stretch of magnificent but foreboding mountains in the heart of the North Island’s wine country. It’s home to grand golf lodges like the French-chateau inspired The Farm. Most visitors to Cape Kidnappers come for its world-renowned course, where you’re confronted by a sublime and challenging landscape of plunging ravines and jagged cliff faces.

In the South Island, the breathtaking mountainous landscapes of Queenstown are home to some of the best courses in the country, including the 27-hole course at the historic 18th century Millbrook resort.  In 2014, Queenstown will host of the New Zealand Open, which promises to be the country’s biggest golfing even to date.
