Sensitive Golfing

In the space of three weeks this winter, Cape Kidnappers Golf Course was honoured as the most environmentally sensitive golf course in New Zealand, and by GOLF Magazine as the 33rd ranked golf course in the world. These two plaudits neatly sum up two primary goals of this North Island retreat: to offer discriminating golfers the finest golf experience in the most beautiful, organic setting possible. Director of golf Ryan Brandeburg said: “That a single golf course can be so highly ranked, and also be so environmentally responsible, shows that quality and sustainability go together. They don’t have to be mutually exclusive – which is something that professionals inside the golf business have long understood, but people outside of golf are beginning to realize more fully every day.”
