Windross Farm is a spectacular golf course located only 30 minutes south of the Auckland CBD.
Designed by Brett Thomson, of RBT Design, with course consultant, Phil Tataurangi in 2011, the course is known for its challenging degrees of interest. The layout is a traditional par 72, with returning 9’s of par 36.
The course provides multiple start options from either the 1st, 10th, 12th, or 15th with the 9th, 11th, 14th and 18th holes finishing back at the clubhouse. Both nines are of similar length but play quite differently with varying design elements and the influence of wind direction. Apart from the undulating greens, 38 bunkers and minimal tree presence, the major feature of the course is the water in its many forms with four large lakes interlaced with numerous burns (streams) threading their way in and out of impressive, yet imposing, wetland areas.
It is a course that can be challenging or challenged by any level of player on every hole and every shot and currently home of the McKayson New Zealand Women’s Open.
Facilities include: Pro Shop, Café, Driving range (covered bays), Chipping/Putting greens
