Set amongst picturesque panoramas in the south of Auckland super city is New Zealand’s brand new golf course, Windross Farm. A welcome addition to the North Island golf course offering and a facility that promises a very special golfing experience.
The new course traverses 60 hectares of pristine farmland with 360 degree views of spectacular tree lined hills and lush green countryside. Windross Farm has been developed as a unique links-style course that offers a mixture of flat and undulating ground, man-made lakes and strategically placed dramatic bunkers to offer the best of golf and the natural environment. Both the clubhouse and facilities have been designed with a minimalistic and understated philosophy in mind and they truly complement the unique golf course, to complete the overall picture.
The grass types chosen for all playing areas was also a strategic decision and in the end, it was decided that a fescue mixture would be used on all fairways, tees, green surrounds and rough, with bentgrass as the preferred putting surface. This has not only provided an excellent playing surface across all closely mown areas, but has given the course a magnificent contrast in aesthetics and texture whilst creating some spectacular views. Drainage of the golf course was also a major priority during development and construction and this, along with a very easy walking layout, allows the course to be playable year round.
Just 30 minutes from the Auckland CBD, Windross Farm offers a utopia of golf heaven being a very playable, yet challenging, course immersed in charming surrounds where everybody has a chance to score well. As an enjoyable and unique golfing experience, the course has already received fulsome praise from some of New Zealand’s golfing greats and officials.
“Windross Farm Golf Course positions itself amongst the top golf clubs in New Zealand and is accessible to all categories of golfers. The aim is to provide an unforgettable golfing experience with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for both members and guests.”
Windross Farm Golf Course is truly a special place and is a very exciting and unique addition to the Auckland golf scene.
