The Turangi Golf Course is 18 holes, par 72 from both tees. The length from the white tees is 5738 metres and 5145 metres from the yellow tees. The course is reasonably flat and has water features and good tree coverage. Autumn is a spectacular time with the tree foliage showing amazing colours. A good club house for visitors who are always welcome at this friendly club.
Turangi is situated 53km south of Taupo, about a 45 minute drive, and is at the entrance to the Tongariro National Park, a World Heritage site. The exciting volcanic nature, three ski fields and excellent trout fishing of this area is a key visitor attraction.
The Turangi Golf Club was formed in 1967 without a golf course. Two years later, members formed nine temporary greens and in 1971 the full 18 holes were opened.
