We will be arriving at the lodge on Octobe 10, 2007. What weather can we expect?

Are there reasonable golf courses in the area?

October is spring time in NZ. You can expect a bit of sunshine, a bit of rain with temperatures in the mid teens. Turangi is only a couple of hours from Mt Ruapehu which will probably still have skiing on the mountain.

Turangi has a lovely flat golf club on the side of the stae highway. Visitors are welcome.

I own a couple of weeks at Turangi Leisure Lodge so can give you a bit of help here. The golf course is ok, and just a couple of minutes drive from the lodge. Not an exciting course, but fine for half day outing. You might like to try Taupo courses. Taupo Golf Club www.taupogolf.co.nz or Wairakei International course. Taupo is half hour drive north of Turangi. Turangi is a small town with a handful of shops, Its the gate way to Tongariro National Park and is also known for it's river trout fishing. The lodge has a great manager who will give you advice on what to see and do. You could take a look at the Taupo visitor centres website www.laketauponz.com

Hope you enjoy your stay
