Local materials are incorporated into graciously sealed rooms full of natural light and unexpected treasures. Comfort and ease are at a premium with each room taking on a character of its own while harkening back to the rural feeling of the New Zealand sheep station and wine country. Spacious cottages each with breathtaking views open to large porches overlooking a stunning Pacific panorama.

Enjoy your game and enjoy the setting. You will never play golf somewhere like this again.
