You could travel the world and not find another place as wonderful as The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs at the northern tip of New Zealand's North Island. Golf Digest ranked The Lodge no. 1 among the "World's Best Golf Hotels" in the international category in 2009. Golfers worship the sublime setting of the Kauri Cliffs golf course and luxury travelers who don't play golf come for everything else.
The sheer majesty of the setting surrounding Matauri Bay has catapulted Kauri Cliffs among the best golf courses in the world. This beauty at the northern tip of New Zealand's North Island, which ranks no. 80 in the world by Golf Magazine and no. 19 among the top courses outside the United States by Golf Digest, has brains, too.
