IPBA Golf Tournament, Titirangi Golf Course

Duration: 9 hours

Timings: 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

Pick up / drop off location: SkyCity       

Cost: NZ $300 pp (minimum of 12 golfers)


Titirangi is regarded as one of New Zealand’s top courses and is the only one in the country designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie. MacKenzie’s designs are notable for their sensitivity to the nature of the original site and he is admired for producing holes that offer an ideal balance of risk and reward. After designing Titirangi in 1927, MacKenzie went on to design some of the world’s top courses including Augusta, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne.


2009 saw the finish of an extensive multi-million dollar upgrade programme, confirming Titirangi’s reputation as the best golf course in Auckland. The par 70 course features elevated tees, rolling fairways, challenging bunkers and greens with pronounced undulations. Its par 3’s face the four points of the compass so no matter what the weather conditions, you experience a different test on each hole.
