After living in the city for 17 years, it was like ‘coming home’ when Kaye Maxwell purchased a 20 acre farm in 2000. Set in a very beautiful part of the Franklin countryside, Kaye has since transformed ‘the farm’ into the stunning 9 hole boutique golf retreat that it is today!
"At age 40 I knew it was time for a change. I wanted to help people learn to play; offer people the chance to have fun with golf and forget the rules for a while. I wanted people to feel and hear the countryside while they did so - just as I was able to do while growing up in the Mangatawhiri Valley."
The Clubhouse is the hub of the property offering a warm and friendly environment with indoor training facilities, Pro Shop, cafe/bar, conference/function facilities, with B&B accommodation is available right next door.
The nine hole golf course is a challenge for all - with Championship tee's through to beginners tee's. The course is affiliated to NZ Golf, for women and men offering 9 or 18 hole handicaps.
Maxwell's is a popular destination for coaching (indoors and out), membership, meetings/functions, social club outings, girls and guys day out packages ... and so much more
Maxwell's Golf Retreat is situated only 30 minutes south of Auckland City, just five minutes from the Bombay Hills motorway interchange. It offers a peaceful setting at the end of a country lane with views out over the countryside.
