Wairakei Golf Course Info
Wairakei Golf Course was built with government money as an additional tourist attraction for the holiday makers who visit the neighbourhood of Lake Taupe and Rotorua. Wairakei Golf Course was opened for play in 1970 after being designed by civil engineer, Commander John Harris, who was England’s leading and most travelled golf course architect of the time. With the objective to design New Zealand’s best golf course which was capable of hosting national events, Harris resisted the temptation to mice too much earht at Wairakei and instead made stunning use of the natural features of the land. This philosophy has left Wairakei Golf Course with some unique features.
