Between the sweeping ocean views to the north and east, and the hillside vineyards of Karikari Estate to the south, is the Northland golf course at Carrington Estate.
American golf course designer Matt Dye designed the championship-standard 18-hole Carrington Golf Course. It is 6417 metres (7267 yards) in length, par 72, and encompasses a variety of terrains from rolling vales to challenging water holes.
The course is designed to accommodate golfers of all abilities and offers a great variety of hole play, from one of the longest par 5's in New Zealand, 569 metres (599 yards), to one of the shortest par 3's at 113 metres (132 yards) over water.
Spectacular views of the golf course, wetlands, Northland beach and ocean beyond are visible from the clubhouse and lounge complex. The clubhouse is on a high ridge in the middle of the golf course in order to take full advantage of the unique combination of vistas.
