Tara Iti Golf Club is a private club near Mangawhai, New Zealand, that is set to open in October 2015. For special guests and the approval of Tara Iti SOPHISTCATED GOLF TOURS can get access. It’s the newest splendiferous creation by American designer Tom Doak and is far more links-like than the other new coastal courses. It’s built on what had been a pine-covered Sahara by the sea. There’s a lot of sand, but no bunkers. From holes inspired by Cypress Point, Royal Dornoch and Royal St. George’s, players are afforded breathtaking views of the Hauraki Gulf, the North Island’s answer to Pebble Beach’s Carmel Bay. The greatest meeting of land and sea is clearly up for debate.
