More Information

The Grange Golf Club
Located in Manukau City, within easy reach of Auckland Airport (in the city`s western suburb of Mangere), the Grange Golf Club features a championship standard golf course. Measuring 6,543 yards from the blue tees and 6,288 yards from the white boxes, with a par of 70, it also offers a par-72, 5,864 yards ladies` course, making it suitable for players of both sexes and a range of abilities. Generally considered one of New Zealand`s best courses, it provides many interesting golfing challenges, accompanied by first-rate facilities.

Formosa Golf Resort
Situated within 35 minutes of Auckland Airport, the golf course at the Formosa Resort was designed by Bob Charles, who used Augusta National as his template. At a formidable 7,315 yards from the Pro tees, it is the longest course in New Zealand. However, with three other sets of tees, ranging from 6,745 yards to 5680 yards, plus a 4,635 yard ladies` course, it can provide enjoyment for golfers of all standards. The majority of its tree-lined holes feature picturesque views of the Hauraki Gulf, while the panorama from the cliff tops of the 11th to 16th holes features Waiheke Island, Rangitoto and the Coromandel peninsula.

Gulf Harbour Country Club
Located on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, north of Auckland, the Gulf Harbour course twists and turns through indigenous grasses and plant life. Ocean vistas and an undulating landscape combine for an exhilarating golfing encounter. The par-72 course measures an intimidating 7,050 yards from the back tees, but other sets of tees, ranging from 6,500 yards to 5800 yards, along with a 5,200 yard ladies` course ensure its suitability for players of every calibre. Gulf Harbour tests course management skills with a diversity of stimulating holes offering a number of risk / reward prospects. The closing holes are particularly electrifying. The approach to the par-4 16th requires both skill and guts, flirting with rock cliffs. The par-5 17th runs alongside the ocean, with distractingly beautiful views, while the 18th is a 420 yard par 4 which turns inland towards home.

South Head Golf Club
The scenic South Head course was opened in 1969 and is built on the sandy, free draining soil of the South Kaipara Peninsula. Designed by Jack Eccles, the course features undulating Kikuyu grass fairways and greens that utilise the full potential of the natural contours. With stunning views over Kaipara Harbour, it provides a true test to golfers of all abilities. The removal of a large number of pine trees has made the course even more enjoyable and the views more impressive.

Muriwai Golf Club
Muriwai is unique in the area as a true links course. The par-72, 6,800 yards course is in a state of perpetual flux, due to the erosion of the coastal dunes by the mighty Tasman Sea. The back 9 demands accuracy with small greens and strategically placed hazards. The challenging greens, coupled with unpredictable cross winds, make for a pleasurable golfing experience.

Golfers travelling with their clubs, particularly on long haul flights such as those to Australia should invest in high-quality golf travel bags to prevent damage to precious equipment. For more information check out:

Planning your emigration to New Zealand

Making plans to emigrate to any new country gives you a seemingly endless list of things to do and knowledge to acquire. Gaining a basic understanding of the country is vital if your emigration is to be successful and as stress-free as possible. The New Zealand government offers would-be immigrants plenty of practical advice regarding living and working in the country to help you plan your relocation and settle as smoothly as possible into your new life.


When you`re issued with a visa for a minimum of two years, you automatically qualify for publicly funded health care under the public health system. This includes accident and emergency cover, immunisations, out-patient hospital treatments and prescriptions and subsidised fees when you visit specialists on referral from a GP.

Private health care is available under an insurance scheme, with the benefit being more rapid access to specialist care for non-urgent conditions rather than having to join the general waiting list.


Families who are emigrating with school-age children are naturally concerned that their children can continue to get as good an education in the new country of residence as they would at home. Children go to school in New Zealand between the ages of 6 to 16, with further-education opportunities at university or college following compulsory education.

Cost of Living

Knowing about the cost of living in New Zealand is critical if you don`t want any nasty surprises by discovering that your money doesn`t go as far as you thought it would. Researching the basic costs of everyday items and equipment can help you. You will at least know how much money to set aside to cover expenses while you settle.

Some items, especially imported goods, can be more expensive due to the physical location of the country and the transport costs involved in their importation. However, the prices of items such as computer equipment or cars are the same or cheaper in New Zealand as in comparable countries. Locally produced fresh produce is available at a good price and quality.

Housing and Accommodation

Once you`ve decided which area in New Zealand you intend to make your home, the next step is to find somewhere to live.

Ideally, you should arrange accommodation before you leave your own country so you at least have the security of somewhere to stay when you arrive. While immigrants with relatives or friends in the country may reside temporarily with them, others choose to rent accommodation before making a final decision on where to live. Rental accommodation in New Zealand is in high demand as the country has a high ratio of home owners, so make a start about considering where you`ll live early in the emigration process.

Temporary, short-term housing may provide the answer, with some agencies able to offer accommodation for a few weeks or months while you look around for something more permanent.


There are several visa options for those interested in emigration to New Zealand.

Work visas are intended for those who intend to live and work permanently in the country, but are also used if you intend doing temporary work or working through a holiday.

Visitors from certain countries need a visa in order to gain even temporary entry to New Zealand. There are also different requirements for visas issued to students and investors, as well as those wishing to settle permanentl

Top Tips - Searching for Holiday Accommodation

When you have decided that you need a holiday there are a few things to organise before you finally depart. As well as deciding where you will go, when and how you will get there, the most important thing is probably where you will stay when you finally arrive at your destination. Follow our top tips for finding the perfect holiday accommodation to ensure that you have the holiday of your dreams.

The sort of accommodation you search for and eventually choose will depend partly on who you are holidaying with. Your requirements from accommodation are likely to be very different if you are travelling with a family than if you are a couple or a person holidaying alone. Types of accommodation include hotels, villas and apartments and will vary from all inclusive to half-board and self-catering. There will also be a significant variation in price and standard.

Some people may find it easier to book a package holiday where transport and accommodation are booked together, however there is much to be said for taking a holiday that you have put together yourself, including sourcing your own accommodation.

A good place to start is by asking friends and family for recommendations in your chosen destination. If they are in the same situation as you, then that is even better as they will be able to recommend places that are suited to your needs.

If you are not able to find anything this way then the internet is the next best place and searching for your chosen type of accommodation could not be easier. There are several ways that you could go about looking online. You could do a search for your destination which should take you to the local tourist office. They usually have lists of recommended accommodation. Alternatively search for your destination, together with the type of accommodation you are looking for and see what results you find. This could take you to websites that act as umbrella sites for owners of private villas and apartments and this can be a good place to find unusual accommodation with a more personal service. You can then cross-check the results on a travel review website to find out more about the location, see if other people have stayed there and what they thought of it.

Alternatively, traditional travel agents can be a good source of information and advice. Booking this way also means that you are fully protected if things do not go to plan. Travel agents have moved away from only offering package holidays to also offering accommodation only so they are worth considering and comparing on price.

Whatever holiday accommodation you are looking for, you are bound to find it. From visiting your local travel agent, to going through friends, tourist information or umbrella websites such as there is a whole array of choice out there. You just have to search for it!

What our guests say...

"My wife Mary and I stayed at your "Airport Apartments" the other evening. This is the first opportunity to say "Thanks" for your professionalism, very nice and ultimately clean accommodations. We enjoyed the short stay. Also, thanks for the kindness in driving me to the ATM. It essentially was a lifesaver."
