NGAMOTU, NEW PLY­MOUTH GOLF CLUB

This clas­sic par-72 course has played host to four New Zealand Open cham­pi­onships and plenty of na­tional and pro­vin­cial am­a­teur events. Both nines sweep out from the club­house in two gi­ant loops, which means no mat­ter which way the wind is blow­ing, you'll be chal­lenged at some point dur­ing your round. Bring your best putting game - many of the greens are large and con­toured. Don't be dis­tracted by the spec­tac­u­lar back­drop of Mt Taranaki as you tee off on hole six, one of the best. A wa­ter haz­ard short and bunkers left and right closely guard the green, so you'll be want­ing to make that tee shot an ac­cu­rate one. The name, Ngamotu, is Maori for “The Is­lands", and refers to the is­lands which lie just off the coast and are in full view when play­ing the holes at the sea­ward end of the course. 24 Golf Course Lane, Bell Block, New Ply­mouth.
