The golf complex includes a world-class practice range, putting and chipping greens, a well stocked golf shop, and ladies and men's locker rooms. Callaway ladies and men's rental clubs are available.
The Northland golf course at Carrington Resort is sited so as to provide
a variety of vistas to the golfer. The course is located between sweeping
ocean views to the north and east, and hill side vineyards of Karikari Estate
to the south.
Spectacular views of the golf course, wetlands, Northland beach and ocean beyond are visible from the clubhouse and lounge complex. The clubhouse is sited on a high ridge in the middle of the golf course in order to take full advantage of the unique combination of vistas.
