Within 180 hectares of native flora and fauna sits one of New Zealand’s finest golf courses.

Whilst researching ways to enhance the natural habitats of our wildlife it was concluded that a fence excluding all pests and predators was the only effective way to achieve the objective. As a result, the 5.5 km boundary fence was erected which is 2 metres high and prevents both climbing and burrowing animals access to the property.

In addition to the fence and sanctuary sits a kiwi egg incubation facility, hatching over 100 kiwi chicks a season.

The golf course was built by the New Zealand government and officially opened in 1970.  The course lies on 180 hectares of natural rolling countryside and was developed to meet the rigorous design standards required for world class championship competition.
