Share Article

New Zealand’s legendary scenery is the perfect backdrop for a golf vacation that can appease even the biggest critics. Virgin Vacation’s New Zealand Fly & Drive vacation package delights golfers looking to tour the scenic courses of the island nation.

Golfers know golf, vacations, golf, hotels and of course -- golf. Hardcore and casual golfers alike enjoy top quality golf when vacationing and that is one of many reasons for the popularity of New Zealand vacation packages.

“My wife and I love to golf,” Joseph Melillo, 56, Tampa, FL, explains. “We’ve golfed on almost every vacation we have taken and our next one will be New Zealand,” Melillo continues.

New Zealand is a great vacation destination for anyone who appreciates a warm culture, beautiful countryside, great food and top quality golf. “We find golfers love our New Zealand Fly & Drive Vacation with its round trip air transportation and 7 day car rental to help them travel from course to course,” Jeanne DeSmedt, President, Virgin Vacation explains. “It also gives golfers the chance to play the courses that Tiger Woods’ caddy honed his skills on,” DeSmedt continues.

Kiwis (residents of New Zealand) are fiercely proud of their country and enjoy showing it off to travelers from around the world. The passion and energy of Kiwis is one of many reasons Americans are enjoying vacations to New Zealand.

As more Americans look for different or unusual vacations, destinations like New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and Asia have become more popular. Companies like Virgin Vacations are rolling out intriguing vacating packages to these destinations as well as exciting vacation packages to popular destinations like London, Paris and Italy.

Golf vacations are among the most popular vacations in the world and New Zealand is becoming a destination of choice. Where else would a golfer go than the nation whose most famous athlete is Steve Williams - Tiger Woods’ caddy.
