Many find sanctuary on a golf course, but it is rare to find a golf course that is a sanctuary and Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary is thought to have scored a world first. The course is skillfully designed to blend with the natural rolling countryside and developed to meet the rigorous design standards for world class championship competition.
In early 2020, Wairakei celebrated 50 years and the completion of a robust green restoration project. The magnificent putting surfaces of the new greens complement the beauty of the course and sanctuary environment. The predator-free sanctuary offers a safe haven to fallow deer and a wide variety of birdlife, including endangered kiwi and takahē. Navigate your way through 18 testing holes of exceptional beauty. Listen to the cacophony of birdlife, the meandering streams, and delightful waterfalls. Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary is a truly unique golf experience that cannot be missed.
