Golf Australia Express : March 2014
I hear the latter has hosted many a great cocktail party and nearest the pin competition down to the 10th green. How do I get an invite? What I particularly love about the 10th is it's driveable, giving you a real crack at an eagle if you can nut one cleanly off the tee. The 9th and 18th holes head back up the hill towards the lodge and both have massive carries over fern lined gorges, only accessible by rustic, railway sleeper style bridges. Aside from the obvious world- class golf experience at your fingertips, a tip to Kauri Cliffs can offer so much more, including: • Beach fishing at Pink Beach; • The historical Kauri tree and waterfall walks and mountain bike rides; • Scenic helicopter flights to the northern most tip of New Zealand (Cape Reinga); • Big game fishing; • Hunting, snorkelling, diving, and sea kayaking; • Swimming, picnics and BBQs on three secluded beaches; • A unique putting competition for guests on Tuesday nights; • 22 five-star guest cottages and regal owner’s suite; • Incredible gourmet cuisine; • The view from the lodge balcony at sunrise as you enjoy your breakfast, or the moon at night as you enjoy your cocktails; and • A luxury day spa set into the native forest. In keeping with the traditional golf feel of the place, you will have to wear jackets in the lodge for dinner during your stay here, but in truth that little bit of charm adds to the incredible aura and character that makes up the “Colonial meets the Hamptons” Kauri Cliffs experience. Kauri Cliffs was the vision of rock star Wall Street Hedge Fund manager Julian Roberston, and was borne out of a quest to find the safest place in the world to live. At Kauri Cliffs you will not only feel safe, but the experience will leave you feeling like you are the most important person in the world. OTG THE 10TH IS DRIVEABLE, GIVING YOU A REAL CRACK AT EAGLE IF YOU CAN NUT ONE CLEANLY. Andrew McCombe is the host of Golf Getaway which airs 4.30pm on Sundays on ONE.
