AKARANA GOLF CLUB

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - PLAY AWAY WITH AVIS -

Akarana boasts a pic­turesque park­land course only 15 min­utes from Queen Street and even closer from Auck­land Air­port. Pre­pare for two dis­tinct nines. The shorter in­ner loop with a par of 34 has one of the great holes in Auck­land golf, the par three 8th, which mea­sures 176 me­tres from the blue tee to a nar­row green with bunkers on the left and wa­ter on the right. This hole can of­ten have a strong head wind, so make sure you have plenty of club. The longer outer nine, which has out of bounds on the left of six holes, has the two longer par fives, two de­mand­ing par fours in the 13th and 15th, the test­ing par three 16th and an ex­cit­ing short par 4 to fin­ish that pro­duces many birdies. 1388 Do­min­ion Rd, Mount Roskill, Auck­land 1041 Ph.
