Golf Courses Nearby

A guest recently inquired after golf courses close to our bed and breakfast at Mahurangi West and so I put together this list for him. I had imagined the list would be reasonably brief, but was surprised to realise just how many fantastic golf courses are in this region: the Matakana Coast and beyond to Mangawhai.

Here is the list:

  • Warkworth golf course: 20 minute drive from Mahurangi West
  • Omaha links: a 30 minute drive from Mahurangi West
  • Whangaparaoa golf course – Peninsula Golf Club: 20 minutes drive from Mahurangi West
  • Gulf Harbour golf course: a second golf course set further down Whangaparaoa peninsula and about about a 40 minute drive south from Mahurangi West. You can see the Whangaparaoa peninsula from your deck at the Mahurangi West Wing bed and breakfast.
  • Mangawhai golf course: (my brother likes this one) this is about 50 minutes’ drive from from Mahurangi West and  “the Mangawhai Golf Club has consistently been regarded as one of the top courses in New Zealand”.
  • Huapai: maybe a 25 minute drive from Mahurangi West to the west (my brother has also been known to sneak off to this one)
  • Wellsford: maybe a 30 minute drive north from Mahurangi West
  • Helensville: 30 minutes west from Mahurangi West

As you can see there are loads of places in this area to enjoy a great game of golf and according to a 2013 article I found on the ranking of New Zealand golf courses from New Zealand industry leaders,”Gulf Harbour also moved up from number 13 to number nine. Mangawhai Golf Club and the Carrington Resort in the far north snuck into the “Top 15”.

Sounds like good reason for golfers to be happy to me, and Mahurangi West B&B is close to all these courses: only about a 20-30  minute drive in all directions.

Matakana

Less than an hour from Auckland city you will find one of New Zealand’s most picturesque destinations. Between Auckland city and Northland is 1500 square kilometres of rolling green countryside with stunning beaches, native bush, exotic islands, sheltered harbours and  coastal reserves, walking tracks, beautiful regional parks, boutique vineyards, friendly towns, villages, cafes, restaurants and  markets. The Matakana Coast area offers everything from a traditional Kiwi beachside holiday, to a day out wine-tasting at one of the many vineyards.

Matakana Village itself  is a small town in the Rodney District of New Zealand. Warkworth is about 9 km to the south-west, Snells Beach the same distance to the south, Omaha is about 7 km to the east, and Leigh is about 13 km to the north-east.

The area surrounding Matakana contains several vineyards and is well known for its farmers’ market, cinema, cafes, restaurants and boutique food shops.

As word has spread of Matakana as a lifestyle location and weekend getaway for many Aucklanders, so too has its popularity, transforming Matakana Coast & Country into one of New Zealand’s hottest new holiday destinations.

Mahurangi West, on the Matakana cost is about 5 kms from Puhoi, the gateway to the Matakana Coast and about a 30 minute drive to Matakana Village. Mahurangi West is a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Matakana and is only a 10 minute drive from Ransom’s Winery. We offer luxury bed and breakfast accommodation and have excellent walking tracks through the Mahurangi Park and along the coast.
