This is the meeting and greeting point for all visitors to the courses, The clubhouse is a welcoming form with new guests guided into a large sheltered portico, as well as the greeting area the Clubhouse contains the proshop and generous changing facilities. The form is a simply detailed gable with deep covered eaves, the arrival area cuts through the gable with easy access to the practice fairway behind.
The restaurant at Te Arai Links is designed by Studio John Irving. This figurehead building is positioned perfectly, with views across the 18th fairway and the ocean view beyond.
The restaurant is the main gathering place for Te Arai Links.
A strong simple and seemingly endless gabled roof, blankets guests with large eaves in all directions. The over 60 metre long roof form is designed to allow the restaurant to open up completely blurring inside and outside, bringing the wide ocean views and the rolling dunes as close to the diner as possible.
There will be a multitude of indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from, whether you are by the fire, watching the action at the 9th or 18th holes, or breaking down your day in one of the sunken conversation pits. There will be something for everyone here, all quite literally under one roof.
This is a very fun building, a NZ haybarn meets a bar meets a golfer’s dream. Situated on a huge putting green, dubbed the playground, it is an easy and welcoming place where you can have a few beers and woodfired pizzas as well as a place to finally put to rest who is the best putter.
This little gem of a space is tucked away, there’s nothing showy here, you descend inside a dune down a set of stairs to a lounge and bar where the bartender already knows what you will be having. Although hidden it has the most spectacular views. It is intended as a haven for members, an intimate laughter-filled place designed for you and friends to unwind while looking over the ocean and the 18th fairway. It will be difficult to leave.
