Northland boasts some of the most authentic, spectacular New Zealand adventures and experiences, at the heart of which is Carrington!

A place where leisure meets nature, where rolling vineyards and farmland flow through pristine fairways down to the azure waters, white sands and untouched beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

Carrington is at the core of your Northland experience, where every day is a new journey.


Between the sweeping ocean views to the north and west, and the hillside vineyards of Karikari Estate to the east, is the Northland golf course at Carrington Estate.

American golf course designer Matt Dye designed the championship-standard 18-hole Carrington Golf Course. It is 6417 meters (7267 yards) in length, par 72, and encompasses a variety of terrains from rolling vales to challenging water holes.

The course is designed to accommodate golfers of all abilities and offers a great variety of hole play, from one of the longest par 5’s in New Zealand, 569 meters (599 yards), to one of the shortest par 3’s at 50 meters (54 yards) over water.

Spectacular views of the golf course, wetlands, Northland beach and ocean beyond are visible from the clubhouse and lounge complex. The clubhouse is on a high ridge in the middle of the golf course in order to take full advantage of the unique combination of vistas.

Carrington Restaurant offers attentive and genuine hospitality, delivering rustic and farm-to-table New Zealand-inspired fare. We focus on sharing our passion for food with our guests. Our mission is staying true to our belief in provenance and providing seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced produce. Members of the general public welcome.

Carrington Restaurant is located adjacent to the championship golf course and boasts views over the course and the glistening Pacific.

Smart Casual attire is the dress code.
