A different experience for us. This was a great experience, the course follows the contours of the natural environment so there are very few level stances. The greens had been cored so I couldn't comment on the quality of them but they seemed hard and...More

You do not want to hit your ball into the thermal pools.. is a bit smelly, but amazing place to play golf. Very friendly; we only had time for 9 and that was fine. We would highly recommend!

My first drive ended up in the middle of the geothermal hazard. Fortunately it went up from there! This was a challenging course with lots of interesting twists, the pro was very helpful. We had a great time.

After heavier and more rain than normal for the region you would hardly notice on this course. A good test of golf on a well established course. Worth a visit, especially in winter when your own course is soft and wet

Fantastic course with great pumice drainage. It’s been a very wet year but you don’t know it on this course. Hope to complete back 9 tomorrow 👍👍 Scenic course with a lot of undulations.

A great day out from the conference. Course in great condition as normal and a great test of golf made more difficult with the wind. One of the better courses and a must if in Rotorua
