In a past professional life I had run a workshop at Cape Kidnappers on the psychology of golf and at the time had never seen a golf course like it – so you could say I was a touch excited knowing I was playing Cape Kidnappers today.
Cape Kidnappers is located in the beautiful orchard and wine region of Hawkes Bay on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
The Cape Kidnappers experience starts with a scene out of Jurassic Park. From the opening of the double gates at the bottom you take a long uphill journey along a dry creek bed as it weaves it’s way through forest, native bush and prairie grass. The view that greets you when you reach the top of the hill is breathtaking.
“If Cape Kidnappers were a book it would be described as an epic” explains course designer Tom Doak.
The Cape figures in Maori mythology and its name immortalizes the first visit by Captain Cook in 1770.
Everything here is on a grand scale and having such an incredible canvas to build a golf course on it must have been a real challenge for Doak to try and match it with a high-quality golf course – this he managed to do.
Cape Kidnappers is not a true links terrain: instead, the land tilts towards the sea as a series of ridges jutting out toward the edge of the cliffs. Yet the play is seaside golf at it’s finest.
