Alister MacKenzie

The resemblance between the course at Titirangi Golf Club and those in Melbourne's famed Sandbelt is not accidental, for Alister MacKenzie designed the former course in 1926 on a trip to New Zealand during the time he was revolutionizing golf architecture in Australia. MacKenzie transformed a tract of promising native heathland terrain into a vision of something out of Surrey or Berkshire, and the management of the club has had the good sense to retain the great man's vision. At least for the most part: some ill-considered renovation in recent years has significantly altered MacKenzie's signature bunkers into something reminiscent of Robert Trent Jones Sr.'s late-period busy, ragged-edged and quite artificial creations. The greens too seem a little more lumpy than they would have been in the early days of the course, though this is open to question. In any case, enough remains to make Titirangi a classic golfing experience.

Titirangi was the course we nearly didn’t get to play in Auckland due to the rain, but decided at the last minute to cancel jumping off the Auckland tower to fit in a game, and delighted we did. A different type of thrill but certainly one we are pleased to have experienced. It is a really nicely designed golf course, “typical” McKenzie we began to understand, with many generous tee shots but wickedly protected and treacherous greens. The greens were the fastest we played on our entire the trip & the course probably the busiest, but none the worse for it. A great day’s golf. Also worth noting that it is a proper golf club, not a course full of travelling golfers (although obviously we were!) and a friendly place to have a beer after playing.
