Tee off with Rotorua Golf Courses and Union Victoria Motel

Tee off with Rotorua Golf Courses and Union Victoria Motel


By Kimberley Gilbert

Rotorua’s mild climate and stunning environment make it a great choice for a golf vacation.

Whether your ideal golf game involves enjoying a couple of drives with friends or for serious golfers, scoring eagles, saving bogeys, Rotorua has the ideal golf course for you.

The Rotorua Golf Club (Arikikapakapa) is one of the world's most unique golf courses. This 18-hole links style golf course is situated on a geothermal reserve. The geothermal area also means the course is set on pumice grounds which allows for rapid drainage after rain. Arikikapakapa is a full 18 hole golf course with easy walking and an excellent golfing layout with its fairways set around steaming hot lakes, bubbling mud pools and native New Zealand plant life.

The Rotorua Golf Club offers members and visitors an on-site ProShop, with trundler and cart hire, as well as a fully licensed bar, restaurant, changing rooms and showers. Located in central Rotorua it is close to the Union Victoria Motel.

Just a short from the centre of Downtown Rotorua, the Lake View course offers players the opportunity to test their golfing skills while at the same time enjoying a panoramic view of Lake Rotorua. The course is 1000 feet above sea level and you will experience clean fresh air and friendly staff. Facilities include golf shop, hire equipment, golf carts as well as full bar and catering.

Springfield Golf Club is located in central Rotorua in Devon Street West. Springfield is the only championship course in Rotorua. Come play the course where former world amateur number one Danny Lee developed the game which now has him playing on the US PGA Tour alongside golfers like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Set in park-like surroundings, there are many tree-lined fairways with strategically placed greens that offer golfers of all abilities the opportunity to roll in their personal best score.

Accommodation at Union Victoria Motel offers non-smoking rooms, LCD TVs (with Freeview and Sky TV) while the on-site games room features a pool table, dart board and big screen TV to allow you to relax even more. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool and toddlers’ pool, covered spa and genuine mineral pools.

With Union Victoria Motel all your accommodation needs are taken care of which means you can relax, and enjoy your golfing holiday.
