Although I've never played golf myself, I grew up very near this beautiful course, some believe the best in the world.  There was a bit of a hoo-ha when it was to be developed as some felt that the view was going to be spoilt.  However other than from a plane, the only way you can see any of this piece of private land is from the bottom of the cliffs at low tide as you make the trek to see the gannets at Cape Kidnappers. So there really can be no grounds for complaint.  I'm sure the select few who come to play have plenty of dosh, some of which gets spent in the Hawkes Bay province.  Probably on wine or restaurant meals.  So someone benefits.  

Gorgeous, innit?

There's more information here.


  1. Judging by the landscape I guess they have to have lots of balls to play there!

  2. Definitely not a course I'd like to try. I've enough trouble keeping my balls dry at sea level !

    (hey YP started it.........)

  3. I'd love to play that course, and I would spend some money in the nearby town, but probably on beer instead of wine!
