The Upper North Island in New Zealand boasts many golf courses with dramatic views from the cliffs

great service and fantastic views

This is a tough course with a beautiful setting. Very well maintained!

I have had a membership at formosa for about 8months now. The annual membership fee was reasonable. The facilities are great, a fully kitted out gym, indoor tennis courts and equipment, area with punching bags, swimming pool, spa pool and sauna. The swimming pool is always clean and a lovely temperature for after a work out (and before a sauna!) There is also sanitiser provided so you can wipe down the exercise equipment. Parking never is a problem and the thing I love most about formosa is how quiet and secluded it is. More often than not, it will be just me in the gym, but thats how I prefer it!! I cannot understand why this place seems quiet!! Will I renew my membership in a few months?? Yes I sure will!!.
