Warkworth Golf Club is about 10-mins drive from the town - follow signs to Omaha (about 40-mins from Auckland), on the way to Omaha. The course is somewhat hilly with lots of doglegs. I find it a very interesting course to play - placement being more important than distance. Recently they cut down a large number of mature Pine & Macrocarpa trees around the course, which I thought a shame, as it has left it looking a little bare, I'm sure these will eventually be replanted with natives, but that will take quite some years to grow. The course is usually kept in good to very good condition, so typically nice to play.
It has an excellent club house (by NZ standards), serving a good selection of hot & cold food, a big bar area with views over the course - rather pleasant while having a beer after a game.
The area suits a golfing weekend away with 3 good course close by; Omaha 10-mins & Mangawai 40-minsMore
