Down Under Par

Depending on course rating, conditions and frequency of run-ins with the beer cart, a round of golf can be either the most frustrating or rewarding part of a man’s day.

So it’s best to pair the sport with other, lower-stress activities.

Offering just that: Kalos Golf’s New Zealand Golf Tour by Private Air, a 12-day, all-inclusive jaunt hitting the country’s most rarefied links, now open for registration.

KG traditionally wows guests with comprehensive golf tours by cruise ship. But to celebrate their 20th ann’y, they’re taking to the skies.

After acclimating for three days in Queenstown, you’ll board a 44-seat private jet, which promises dazzling vistas of the landscape that doubled as Middle Earth and easy access to four truly awe-inspiring golf courses.

Like coastal gem Kauri Cliffs, which features a Pacific Ocean-sized water hazard at every turn. Or the more rustic Cape Kidnappers and its treacherous, multi-tiered greens.

After making your rounds, you’ll be whisked off to wineries, a sheep farm and a “jet-boat adventure” before retiring to some of NZ’s most exclusive hotel properties – Cape Kidnappers’ “Farm” and the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs among them.

If that’s not up-to-snuff, you can always inquire about KG’s mythically proportioned Golf Around the World tour.

Go big or go home, Tiger.
