Heli-Golf in New Zealand

Heli Golf 595

THOSE pesky Kiwis could really have something here with this innovative luxury golf travel concept.

As they seductively pose: How would you like to arrive at New Zealand’s most spectacular golf courses by helicopter and then, after a round of golf, return to your luxury small ship to try a spot of sport fishing before your award-winning chef presents a breath-taking evening meal?

The promoting company, Island Escape Cruises, have just announced new departures on their luxury Heli-Golf Tours and a 50% discount for a non-golfing partner.

Starting and finishing in Auckland, there are two Heli-Golf programs which combine the best of New Zealand golf, with fine dining, stunning wine regions, gorgeous coastlines, tropical white sand beaches and, of course, spectacular golf courses.

The Ship

The company says what makes these trips different and special is the ship; a unique vessel they claim has pushed the boundaries of ‘small ship design’ providing a spacious and luxurious layout. The catamaran design provides 45% more width than a conventional hull and ample space for the 24 guests within the 42 metres. Large cabins and suites, generous ensuites, enormous interior dining and saloon spaces are complimented by an expansive aft deck where guests spend a large amount of their time. The completed plan is more like being on board a small luxury private yacht. Add to that space for a helicopter, four motorboats, a landing craft plus kayaks and you can appreciate how the dream of the ship’s owner, Peter Bissett has become a floating reality.

Choice of Programs

Heli-Golf operates two programs between January and February – a 7 day Bay of Islands and Auckland tour and a 10 day Best of New Zealand tour. Both tours include luxury en-suite accommodation, all on board chef prepared meals, helicopter transfers between the ship and the golf course, green frees, golf carts, transfers, domestic airfares and use of all sport fishing gear.

Special Offer – 50% OFF …Limited Availability!

Coinciding with the launch of these new departure dates, Heli-Golf have announced an unprecedented offer of a 50% discount for non-golfing partners. For details visit: http://www.islandescapecruises.com/
