New Zealand weather

New Zealand's climate is pretty mellow for much of the year. There is a far greater seasonal difference in the South Island than in the subtropical North.

In Central Otago, winter temperatures are often 14°F (-10°C),with summers up to 100°F to 104°F (38°C-40°C). The northern part of the North Island is subtropical which means lots of winter/spring rain.

The west coast of the South Island can get up to 100 inches or more of rain a year on its side of the Southern Alps.

Best time to visit

It goes without saying that New Zealand golf holidays provide an experience like nowhere else – a fact that hasn’t been lost on anyone who’s been fortunate enough to enjoy a round or two here. Depending on your chosen course, you could find yourself staring open-mouthed at any number of beautiful backdrops: from endless ocean views to snow-capped mountains, alpine hillsides to sweeping valleys. As you stand on the 1st tee of pretty much any course you visit, you’ll quickly realise that playing golf in New Zealand is truly special.

But that’s just the beginning. Not only is the country home to some of the world’s finest courses, it also offers a serious amount of diverse choices. In fact, only Scotland is able to boast having more golf courses per capita. All of these options naturally mean that it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll find a course that perfectly suits your budget and skill level.

At Golf Explorer, we have our own impressive selection of New Zealand golf holidays. You might just fancy fitting in a few relaxing rounds over a couple of days. Or maybe you like the sound of taking a week-long trip and enjoying as many games as you can. There’s no end to the packages available to make your dream trip become reality. We also offer a few truly unique options – our most spectacular being the Bay of Islands Luxury Heli-Golf Cruise. This package includes five rounds of golf and six nights’ accommodation, including a stay at sea on-board a cruise ship. But what really makes this package truly outstanding is the awe-inspiring helicopter ride that whisks you across the ocean from the helipad to the course.

With more than a little helping hand from nature, New Zealand’s golf resorts have been designed to leave every player with a desire to return again and again. When you combine drop-dead-gorgeous natural scenery with some of the world’s most beautifully designed courses, you end up with one of finest locations you can imagine to enjoy the great game. So whatever package you end up booking, New Zealand golfing holidays are always guaranteed to live long in the memory.
