Bucket List

Bucket List – Cape Kidnappers

Designed by Tom Doak, Cape Kidnappers is located in New Zealand and has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. This course is truly majestic to behold, featuring stunning sea views and dramatic cliffs, with golfers playing high above the ocean. It takes 20 minutes by car to reach the clubhouse from the entrance gate, ensuring that players are entering a unique course where seclusion from reality is at the forefront. Stunning bunkers and greens fit among the natural mounds and shapes of the cliffs and land, offering players spectacular views of the ocean. The par 5 15th hole, named Pirates Plank, plays 800 ft. above the Ocean with perilous drops on both sides. Go long over the green and your ball will sail for 14 seconds before splashing into the Pacific Ocean. The course played host to the PGA TOUR’s Kiwi Challenge in 2008 and 2009.
