Play a Round of Golf at Cape Kidnappers

This morning you will be transferred by private coach to Cape Kidnappers Golf Club Napier

Includes: Green Fee for 18 hole round & Cart

Note: Also includes Caddie (4 pax per Caddie)

Cape Kidnappers sits above towering cliffs with every hole having a view of the Pacific ocean. Parts of the design incorporate several picturesque fairways along the edge of the cliff tops, with greens
situated where any ball that badly misses will plunge down into the ocean. Completed in 2004, this spectacular New Zealand golf course has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. Cape Kidnappers� golf course is currently ranked the 41st best golf course in the world by Golf Magazine. "The Cape is not true links terrain; instead, the land tilts toward the sea as a series of ridges jutting out toward the edge of the cliffs. Yet, the play is seaside golf at its finest. The surface is firm and fast, and the conditions can be windy, so the player who can control his trajectory will be master of the course. You'll hit heroic shots over the tops of the tea trees, and play cautiously along the edges of deep ravines. Every hole has a view of the Bay, and at the sixth and fifteenth holes it's possible to pull your approach off the very end of the earth, though it will take nearly ten seconds of hang time for your ball to reach the ocean, 500 feet below. Enjoy your game, and enjoy the setting. You will never play golf somewhere like this again." Comments from designer Tom Doak.

At the end of the round re-board coach for the transfer back to hotel.
