Auckland’s Fringe of Heaven
It’s no secret that Auckland is a golfer’s paradise. Some of its courses are known worldwide, among them is Titirangi Golf Club, one of New Zealand’s best 18-hole courses.
For any golfer visiting Auckland, Titirangi Golf Club is the golf course that shouldn’t be missed. This popular, world-class course is only a twenty-minute drive from the heart of Auckland.
The course has become loved by golfers the world over thanks to its design by the famed British architect Alister Mackenzie. Mackenzie is renowned for his passion and sensitivity to the natural surroundings of a course. Amongst his most famous works are some of the world’s finest courses, including the home of the Masters, Augusta National Golf Club, Cypress Point Club, and Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
Titirangi Golf Club opened in 1927 and is located in the lush West Auckland native bush, neighboring the beautiful Waitakere Ranges. For golfers, the 6,016-meter course is a magical wonderland to escape from the hustle bustle of the city. Which is exactly why Mackenzie gave the name "Titirangi" to this course. In Maori, the language of the indigenous population of New Zealand, the name means “fringe of heaven”.
This fringe of heaven offers true championship quality and consistently rates as one of the best courses in the country. The rolling fairways, weaving their way through a beautiful backdrop of native New Zealand bush, provide players a blend of opportunities, challenges, risks, and rewards on every hole.
With no two holes being the same, every round offers a fresh set of challenges and the exhilaration that comes with them. Not to mention the excitement and prestige of playing on an Alister MacKenzie designed course, which is sure to encourage a golfer to try their hand at another round.
Titirangi Golf Club is recognized around the world as being among the best in New Zealand. The course has earned acknowledgments from US Golf Digest, US Links magazine, Robb Report, and Top 100 Golf Courses, which rates it as the leading course in Auckland and the eighth best in New Zealand.
Titirangi keeps the promise its name implies.
