Golf in Rotorua
Rotorua has a superb selection of golf courses catering to all skill levels, including world-class courses such as Hamurana, Arikikapakapa, Government Gardens and Springfield.
Springfield Golf Club is Rotorua's only championship course. It is known for being Danny Lee's home club and its extremely tight fairways and its vast amount of trees.
Play alongside natural hazards such as bubbling mud pools and steaming craters at the Rotorua Golf Club.
