Since it opened in 2000, Kauri Cliffs has quickly gained a worldwide reputation that was enhanced in March 2003 when it was the site for Shell's Wonderful World of Golf and a match, hosted by veteran American broadcaster Jack Whittaker, featuring American PGA Tour star Fred Couples and New Zealander Michael Campbell. The inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland, and 15 holes have sea views. Six holes are played along the cliff top that plunges into the sea and in that way are unmatched by any course anywhere.

Day 4: Bay of Islands – Domestic flight over Auckland to Hawkes Bay (Private transfers to lodge, day to our own leisure)

You will be picked up from your accommodation and be taken to the domestic Airport in Keri Keri to take a flight back to Auckland and then a flight to Hawkes Bay. This morning take a scenic drive to the East Coast of the North Island and an area known as Hawke’s Bay. Beautifully preserved 1930’s architecture is Napier's special point of difference. A national disaster resulted in Napier becoming one of the purest Art Deco cities in the world. On the morning of February 3rd, 1931 a massive earthquake - 7.9 on the Richter scale - rocked Hawke's Bay for more than three minutes. Nearly 260 lives were lost and the vast majority of buildings in the commercial centre of Napier were destroyed, either by the quake itself or the fires that followed. Rebuilding began almost immediately, and much of it was completed in two years. New buildings reflected the architectural styles of the times - Stripped Classical, Spanish Mission and Art Deco. Napier's city centre has the feeling of a time capsule - the seamless line of 1930’s architecture is quite extraordinary. Optional - winery tour: Hawke’s Bay’s warm, maritime climate and varying landscapes also produce some of New Zealand’s richest and most complex Chardonnays. Visit some of the region’s oldest wineries, Mission Estate (est. 1851), Te Mata Estate, Vidal Estate, Church Road and Esk Valley Winery. Today Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s second largest wine producing region with over 100 vineyards and more than 80 wineries producing both innovative and classic wine styles. Most of Hawke’s Bay’s wineries produce less than 200,000 litres per annum and are family owned, providing a true boutique experience to complement award-winning wines. Or. Gannet or Kiwi tour. Cape Kidnappers is an extraordinary sandstone headland to the east of Hastings in Hawke's Bay. It was named by Captain Cook after an attempt by local Maori to abduct one of his crew. The cape is home to the largest and most accessible Gannet colony in the world. Take a guided tour and travel in comfort in the air-conditioned 4 x 4 wheeled vehicles, through Cape Kidnappers Station - traversing riverbeds, broad rolling pastures, through stands of native bush, steep gullies and breath-taking inclines.

Accommodation: Hawke’s Bay at Cape Kidnappers Lodge

Day 5: Hawkes Bay - Golf at Cape Kidnappers

New Zealand's top course is one that every serious golfer in the world must play. Considered "the leader among the many cliff-side courses that claim to be the new Pebble Beach" Golf Digest ranked it the tenth best course in the world outside of the US, and stated "Kidnappers is terrific, a masterpiece no less". With 7,137 yards/6,520 metres of luxury golf, the par 71 Cape Kidnappers golf course simply must be seen, and played, to be believed.

Accommodation: Hawke’s Bay at Cape Kidnappers Lodge
