If golf is your passion or just for pleasure, Dave & Julie are happy to arrange a course that will suit your requirements and time frame.

Bay of plenty is renown for its golf courses be it a single round  or  a multiday golf  schedule you want on either a 9 hole or one of the many  18 hole championship courses.

Just a chip shot away

Renner Park is the local nine hole course  just 3 minutes from the lodge. It is both interesting and challenging with an undulating lie and water hazards.

We can provide a complimentary drop off and pick up service if required. Either enjoy a drink at the club or come back and swim and  relax with a drink at  the lodge.

An easy drive away

Tauranga Golf course is just a 5 min drive from the lodge. This 18 hole championship course is often described as 2 courses in one. With its picturesque trees and beautifully manicured fairways and greens this will be a treat to play no matter what your skill level.

Dave is a member here and can arrange a tee time for you most days of the week.

With the lodge being positioned on the city boundary it is very handy to drive to the near by hunting grounds of many different types of game be it the winged or  legged variety. For some the thought of walking out of the lodge and into a helicopter and being whisked away with your guide for a days hunting  seems almost unbelievable and to be on the scent of a deer in an hour or two. Maybe it’s the thrill of the walk and being part of the natural New Zealand bush landscape you are looking for, or you have a trophy in mind let us know and we will organise a package which will best fulfill your requirements.

Half day small game packages from $200 per person

Full day deer hunting trips from $400 per day. (plus transport)
