I played the Rotorua course with three local club members. Thankfully I was able to benefit from the local knowledge of my fellow golfers. Course is quite interesting particularly where it passes by the thermal pools. Fairways are reasonably forgiving, while the greens are quick with some challenging pin placements. Pace of play was steady and we completed our round... More

I spent two days in Rotorua for sightseeing. The weather was quite good on the third day. I decided to play a round of golf nearby my Hotel. The golf course layout is so so. The most interesting part of this golf course is about the thermal steam. It is quite different than all the golf courses which I have... More

Thank you, we appreciate your feedback and the great images you have added. We are glad you found our course interesting, but disappointed that we could not offer you enough of a challenge as we have members and other visitors play the course. We take pride in the unique geothermal features that our golf course has to offer. More

We feel being discriminated at this golf course, as if you are from Rotorua-the green fees $30 in large on the advertising,but if you are from Hamilton just a few kilometres away-it is $45.00. I jus wonder why do we pay New Zealand golf afilliation fees if we can be so discriminated against Rororua's golfers. Course is nothing special, hilly,the... More

For a first time golfer the staff made me feel very welcome. We had a great afternoon here and loved the geothermal activity around the course. We will recommend to anyone visiting Rotorua who wants to do an relaxing outdoors activity.

A beautiful course with a good layout suiting the landscape. Well maintained and you can tell you are in a thermal area.

Awesome views ,... More

This course is very easy walking with a couple of interesting holes. Because of the natural geothermal activity in the area it adds a whole new meaning to hazards. If you knock your ball into a steaming bush DO NOT go looking for it.

What a great course. The club was walking distance from my hotel in the central city which was great. The course itself was challenging and the views around the place were incredible. Quickly became one of my favourite courses in New Zealand. Loved the thermal activity, felt like I was playing on another planet! Will be back for sure.

The Rotorua Golf Course was excellent to play on, we loved seeing the thermal activity around the course and the people were friendly too. Location is great as really close to town and all the hotels and motels in Rotorua.
