Golf at Cape Kidnappers
Golf at Cape Kidnappers - New Zealand

Founded by the late Julian and Josie Robertson, Cape Kidnappers golf course in Hawke’s Bay opened in 2004. As sister property to Kauri Cliffs just north of New Zealand’s Bay of Islands, the two golf courses went on quickly to be named among the world’s greatest.

Designed by legendary golf architect Tom Doak, the Cape Kidnappers par 71 golf course measures 7,119 yards (6,510 meters) and will challenge golfers of all skill levels. This spectacular New Zealand golf course has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. Built on a ridge-and-valley landscape and with stunning sea views, Cape Kidnappers Golf Course plays high above the ocean atop dramatic cliffs.

In partnership with Doak’s Renaissance Golf, the course underwent a full renovation of all 18 greens and fairways in 2022 with outstanding results.

With cliff-edge fairways perched 140 metres above sea level and a surface that remains firm and fast, this course offers holes unlike anything you find elsewhere in the world. While every hole has a spectacular view of the Bay, some play cautiously alongside deep ravines as others intimidate golfers with deep cliff top bunkers and sheer drops off the very edge of the earth.

World class courses, frequently set against breath-taking panoramas of snow-capped mountains, lakes, forests and seascapes, make New Zealand one of the world’s most sought after golf locations. New Zealand offers more than 400 crowd-free golf courses where you can play year-round. That’s more golf courses per head of capita than any other country in on the planet!
