Expired: South Cape Owners Club

Expired: Cape Kidnappers

New Zealand offers so many beautiful locations to visit and this, I can confidently say, is one of its jewels. Set on luxurious farmland overlooking Hawke’s Bay on the North Island, Cape Kidnappers offers an unforgettable luxury golf experience, especially for couples.
