Kinloch Club New Zealand

Kinloch Club -  Golf Course

On opening in 2007, Kinloch Club was ranked in the Top 10 new golf courses of the world by the prestigious U.S. Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine – making it the only course outside of North America to be included in that Top 10. This award is not surprising since Kinloch Club is the only golf course in New Zealand that is a Jack Nicklaus signature course. Now ranked at No.76 by Golf Digest Magazine in the Top 100 golf courses in the World outside the US, The Kinloch Club has become a must visit golf experience for traveling golfers and local New Zealand golfers alike.

With arguably New Zealand’s best drainage system within New Zealand and the temperate climate of the Taupo region, Kinloch has become a great all year round golfing destination. The par 72 eighteen hole Championship golf course measures 6734 metres from the Tournament tees.

The Golden Bear visited Kinloch Club to oversee construction of his signature Championship golf course and returned to The Kinloch Club in February of 2008 to play the course for the first time since completion. Jack was extremely happy with how his vision had come to fruition and was greatly impressed with the maturity of the golf course after it’s ‘grow in’ stage. However this is not a typical Jack Nicklaus course, it has been said that you can put your thoughts of Muirfield Village right out of your mind. Kinloch Club pays homeage to the great British and Irish link courses, although it is about as far from the ocean as you can get in New Zealand. The property is a peice of farmland on volcanic terrain, flanked by craggy hills and panoramic views over beautiful Lake Taupo.

The Kinloch Club, is open for play six days a week (Tuesday to Sunday) upon request but is closed on Mondays for course maintenance.
