Ti­ti­rangi. In Maori the name means “fringe of heaven”. Per­haps Dr Alis­ter MacKen­zie had the mean­ing in the back of his mind when he de­signed the Ti­ti­rangi Golf Course in 1927. For there is in­deed some­thing heav­enly about play­ing Ti­ti­rangi’s ma­jes­tic 18 holes, with its rolling fair­ways weav­ing their way through a beau­ti­ful back­drop of na­tive New Zealand bush. Ti­ti­rangi is the only Golf Course in New Zealand where Dr Alis­ter MacKen­zie worked his ge­nius (this is the same man who cre­ated such golf­ing mas­ter­pieces as the Au­gusta Na­tional, Cy­press Point and the Royal Mel­bourne). The course has evolved since 1927, but MacKen­zie’s vi­sion lives on with the club stay­ing true to the MacKen­zie prin­ci­ples of de­sign mean­ing the course of­fers a blend of op­por­tu­ni­ties, chal­lenges, risks and re­wards at ev­ery hole. No two holes are the same. And ev­ery round of­fers a fresh set of chal­lenges – and the ex­hil­a­ra­tion that comes with them. Hardly sur­pris­ing then that once a golfer ex­pe­ri­ences the ex­cite­ment of play­ing on an Alis­ter MacKen­zie de­signed course, that they’re hun­gry for an­other round. Hardly sur­pris­ing too that the Ti­ti­rangi Golf Club is recog­nised around the world as be­ing among the best this coun­try has to of­fer. Ti­ti­rangi is a Mem­ber’s Club with a cher­ished sense of his­tory that stretches back to its very begin­nings over 100 years ago. Ex­pe­ri­ence that his­tory and the skill of Alis­ter MacKen­zie when you re­serve a round at the Ti­ti­rangi Golf Club. The name prom­ises it all. Golf­ing heaven for keen golfers at any level.
