New Zealand: Tara Iti Golf Club
Designed by American golf architect Tom Doakâ€”itâ€™s his second New Zealand course after the acclaimed Cape Kidnappers in Hawkes Bayâ€”Tara Iti lies less than 100 kilometers from Auckland amid the dunes north of Te Arai Point. Routed through a former pine plantation that has been cleared to reveal dramatic ocean vistas from every hole, its fescue surface and gusty conditions will provide a links-like experience when the course opens for play in October.Â Â
