Gulf Harbour Country Club

Gulf Harbour is a 6,400 metre, par 72 golf course located at Gulf Harbour on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, just north of Auckland. It meanders through native grasses and vegetation and has a natural look and feel from start to finish. Spectacular finishing holes, ocean views, rolling terrain and classic, traditional values combine to make the Gulf Harbour Country Club one of the most exciting developments in New Zealand.

Spectacular finishing holes, ocean views, rolling terrain and classic, traditional values. All combine to make the Gulf Harbour Country Club one of the most exciting developments in New Zealand.

This 6,400 metre, par 72 golf course is located at Gulf Harbour on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, just north of Auckland. It meanders through native grasses and vegetation and has a natural look and feel from start to finish.

Four sets of tees assure playability for every calibre of golfer, from beginners to professionals. Like all great courses, Gulf Harbour tantalises players with a variety of exciting holes. Several feature risk and reward opportunities, and none are tricked-up or artificial.

The front nine is slightly hillier and has an open feeling, while the back nine wanders towards the ocean and culminates with some of the most scenic holes anywhere. Comparisons have already been made to Pebble Beach Golf Links.

One of the most interesting holes on the course is the 300 metre par 4 seventh. This short dogleg is flanked by a lake on the right and tempts long hitters to go for the green. Those who get too greedy will pay the price on this intriguing little hole, sure to become one of the most talked about on the course.

The four finishing holes will increase the heartbeat of every golfer. The 160 metre 15th is a par 3 toward the ocean, with the water as a backdrop. The 405metre 16th is a classic par 4 bordering cliffs. The second shot flirts with the rock cliffs and requires nerve as well as talent. The par 5 17th stretches 505 metres along the ocean, and the gorgeous views can be distracting to the eye. The final hole is a 390 metre par 4 which turns inland toward the clubhouse.

The beauty, challenge and enjoyment of Gulf Harbour combine to provide an enjoyable golf experience.

Playing Tips

1
Par 1, Length 1m

A straight away, open starting hole playing downwind in the winter. The 18th fairway on the right creates a wide double fairway producing a very comfortable driving hole. An open entry green will allow the player to bounce the ball onto the putting surface.

2
Par 2, Length 2m

This will be a very interesting par 5 . The tee shot is played uphill to an elevated decked fairway. To the left of the fairway, the terrain drops sharply. From the first landing area the player can view the slightly elevated green situated in a saddle with little or no backing.

3
Par 3, Length 3m

A delightful par 3 set amongst numerous mature pine trees. This hole plays slightly uphill to a green that will have only sky as a backdrop. A very natural green setting and variable winds will make club selection a complicated task.

4
Par 4, Length 4m

This long par 4 will play much shorter than it appears as the tee shot drops some 15 metres to the fairway. The fairway itself is wide and receptive allowing the player to swing away. Protected by bunkers, the green is positioned on an elevated plateau and a shot played left or long will be in trouble.

5
Par 5, Length 5m

A short, but occasionally directly into the wind par 4. The tee shot is played over a small arm of a lake to an elevated plateau. A tee shot hit to the right will leave the player with a very difficult approach. The view from the landing area to the green is magnificent, looking directly down towards the marina. The green is decked into the hillside with a sharp drop to the right side. The approach shot must be hit with precision.

6
Par 6, Length 6m

A medium length par 5 that the longer hitters could reach in two. However, the green is well protected and a fairway wood will have to be perfect to find the green. The drive area is decked into a rolling hillside that creates severe trouble if the golfer misses to the right. The gently rolling fairway will provide the golfer with several options on the second shot.

7
Par 7, Length 7m

This is the shortest par 4 on the course, but no less challenging. When played downwind the green is reachable from the tee, but with considerable risk. The small green, with a lake on the right, will present a difficult target, but will allow the perfect tee shot to bounce onto its surface. The farther left the tee shot is played, the more difficult the approach shot will become.

8
Par 8, Length 8m

An attractive medium length, lake-side hole, the par 3 eighth will normally be played with a crosswind. This will make club selection critical. Playing to the right will find trouble. Playing left is much safer but will leave a difficult chip shot to the well guarded green.

9
Par 9, Length 9m

A long difficult finish for the outward nine, this hole will vary dramatically depending upon wind direction. When playing downwind, a driver followed by a middle or short iron approach will reach the green. When playing directly into the wind this hole may prove difficult to reach in two by even the best players.

10
Par 1, Length 1m

A medium to long par 4 with spectacular views to the west. The hole plays along a rolling sidehill with a gentle curve to the right. A tee shot played right will leave the golfer with a difficult approach to the green which drops quickly off at the back. This hole can vary dramatically in difficulty, depending upon wind conditions and the pin location.

11
Par 1, Length 1m

A short par 5, the eleventh fairway plays uphill and is well defended by mature pine trees, bunkers and topographic features. The tee shot is actually downhill into a valley fairway. From the drive zone the hole meanders uphill some 25 metres in elevation with trees creating hazards on both sides of the fairway. The hole appears to be short, but will play considerably longer than the card suggests. Accuracy will be essential.

12
Par 2, Length 2m

A dramatic and novel short par 4 situated in a unique part of the site. This self- contained valley provides the setting for one of the most dramatic short approach shots on the course. A short iron uphill approach will require skill and good judgement under windy conditions. The green is perched atop a narrow ridge providing a spectacular vista of the surrounding ocean.

13
Par 3, Length 3m

From the back tee this will be amongst the most demanding par 3's in golf; a 230 metre shot to the green some 12 metres above the tee. The green is shaped into a wonderful bowl setting, but protected by a deep frontal bunker. From the forward tees this hole plays medium length from a variety of directions. Weather conditions and tee location will have a great impact on the playing characteristics of this hole.

14
Par 4, Length 4m

A long, open, grand par 4. A sweeping downhill tee shot to a fairway some 10 metres below allows the player to swing away. A shot pulled or hooked left will be in trouble and a shot placed too far right will result in a difficult sidehill lie. The approach shot will require a long iron or fairway wood to a green on the ridge line some 13 metres above. The player will see only the flag flying with sky for a backdrop. Judging distances will be difficult. This hole should prove to be both dramatic and difficult.

15
Par 5, Length 5m

A spectacular downhill par 3 hole which plays directly at the ocean. This is the first of three unique ocean front holes. Native vegetation and mature pine trees will give this hole an established and wonderful setting that will certainly make this another of many memorable holes.

16
Par 6, Length 6m

This hole is likely to be the most dramatic and difficult hole on the course. A setting such as this is rarely found in the golf world and will be compared with the 8th at Pebble Beach or the 17th at Cypress Point. The tee shot plays over a rugged ravine to a rolling fairway that naturally turns the fairway to the right. The long hitter can opt to play over the rugged ocean front terrain to considerably shorten his approach. Such a tee shot is clearly risky, as any shot less than perfect will not be found. The green rests at the point of a narrow peninsula providing 270 degrees of photographic ocean views.

17
Par 7, Length 7m

The longest and perhaps the most demanding par 5 playing along and through the gently rolling ocean front topography. To the inland side of the hole is a long ridge line that not only provides a backdrop for the hole but creates a special environment separated from the rest of the golf course. The elevated green is located in one of the saddles along the ridge. This hole will require skillful club selection and accurate shots. The views from the 17th green are spectacular.

18
Par 8, Length 8m

A long downhill hole with broad views of the large lake and valley and a glimpse of the Town Centre. A double fairway with the 1st hole will allow the tee shot to stray well right. However, such a shot can leave the golfer with a blind approach. When playing against the wind this hole will provide a challenge to the golfer. It will certainly be an exhilarating finish to the round.

Located 20 minutes from Auckland, Titirangi Golf Club is considered on of New Zealand's best courses with its tall exotic, native bush and undulating landscapes.

Opened in 1926, the course was designed by Alister MacKenzie - who is also well known for his work on the world famous Augusta National, Royal Melbourne, Cypress Point.

The course has undergone some recent course updates, however the subtle cunning of MacKenzie's design is still very much a part of Titirangi.  Today, the course is consistently rated in New Zealand's top five.

2
Par 4, Length 310m

Keep the drive as close to the line of the greenside as possible.

3
Par 4, Length 389m

The wind on this tee will fool you. Watch which way the flag is blowing.

4
Par 3, Length 169m

The wind on this tee will fool you. Watch which way the flag is blowing.

5
Par 5, Length 485m

Keep drive as tight left as possible if you want to get up for two.

6
Par 4, Length 387m

Drive at the power pole, left is not good. Second shot is longer than you think.

7
Par 3, Length 190m

Keep the ball below the hole.

8
Par 4, Length 310m

If downwind, go with your driver but keep it on a tight line right. If into the wind, lay up with a long iron. Watch the borrow on the green.

9
Par 4, Length 408m

Drive as tight left as you dare for the best line to the green.

10
Par 4, Length 352m

11
Par 3, Length 161m

If the pin is on the left, it is one club more than if the pin is on the right.

12
Par 4, Length 419m

A drive down the left side gives the shortest line to the green. A long green, so the right club is important. A big par 4.

13
Par 5, Length 468m

Left is the best line from the tee. There is more room than you think. Anything right will cut you out from the green.

14
Par 3, Length 185m

There is only one place to hit it. On the green, preferably on the right level.

15
Par 4, Length 368m

Off the back tees, driver with a controlled draw will get you down near the green.

16
Par 4, Length 384m
