Mt Maunganui Golf Club is situated in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand. Mt Maunganui is
New Zealand's favourite summer holiday destination with a white sandy beach, and a safe sheltered inner
harbour beach. Mount Maunganui (The Mount or Mauao) is also the name of the extinct volcano which rises above
t he town. Shrouded in history and legend, the mountain is a dominant feature of the landscape, and a climb to the summit
offers amazing views of the surrounding city and ocean.

The coastal Bay of Plenty, one of the country’s top holiday destinations, Tauranga offers a great mix of accommodation, activities, scenic attractions, culture and top dining experiences. Whether you’re after adventure, beach life or a bit of indulgence, the Bay of Plenty has all the bases covered. Located along the picturesque Pacific Coast Highway, the region is home to a beautiful landscape in which to enjoy a full range of activities year-round. The region's main centre is Tauranga, and the coastal suburbs of Mount Maunganui and Papamoa have long been popular with visitors. The region is also home to the heart of the kiwifruit industry in Te Puke, the art-loving town of Katikati, and quiet coastal village of Waihi Beach, historic Maketu and the tourist activity centre of Paengaroa. Choose from water adventures like white-water rafting, kayaking, and dolphin encounters, parasailing and jet boating. There’s also skydiving, scenic flights, blokarting (a locally-invented land sailor), horse treks, cultural experiences, golf courses and a variety of gardens and museums to peruse. The range of accommodation includes waterfront hotels, motels and apartments, holiday parks in great locations and lodges set amongst orchards and hills. From the beaches and harbour to a thriving kiwifruit industry and Maori culture, the coastal Bay of Plenty is a great holiday destination.
