Cliffs. The par 72 championship golf course measures 6,510 metres and offers five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Fifteen holes view the Pacific ocean, six of which are played alongside seaside cliffs. The beautiful inland holes wind through
marsh, forest and farmland. Set on 4000 acres of rolling coastal land near Matauri Bay, Kauri Cliffs was constructed to harmonise and blend with the natural features of the landscape.

Breakfast will be ready for you before we helicopter out to play 18 holes at the stunning Carrington Golf Club.

After the game the helicopter will be waiting to transfer you back to the Island Passage. Later you can relax on-board or enjoy another afternoon of sport fishing in these world-renowned fishing waters. Dinner will be served on board from 7.00pm.
