The Kinloch Club
As New Zealand's only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, and with arguably some of the countries finest drainage, The Kinloch Club offers fantastic conditions to play year round. The par 72 eighteen hole Championship golf course measures 6734 metres from the Tournament tees. The Golden Bear visited Kinloch to oversee construction of his signature Championship golf course and returned to The Kinloch Club in February of 2008 to play the course for the first time since completion. Jack was extremely happy with how his vision had come to fruition and was greatly impressed with the maturity of the golf course after it’s 'grow in' stage. The Kinloch Club is the only Nicklaus designed golf course in New Zealand. Kinloch ranked in the prestigious U.S. Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine - making it the only course outside of North America.
Located 3 hours south of Auckland, Kinloch Club is on the northern shores of Lake Taupo of the Waikato region. The club has a stunning backdrop of Lake Taupo and the Kinloch hills that create a unique ambiance that is rarely experienced anywhere else in the world.
