About Maxwell's Golf
Enjoy a fun 9 holes of Golf or Foot Golf, hit our indoor driving range and training facility, or grab a drink and a bite to eat. We are fully licensed, offer an all-day cafe-style menu, plus offer a specialist menu that can be customised to your requirements for any function. It’s a good idea to book your tee time by phone or email that way you get priority.
Set across 20 pristine acres, Maxwell’s – Boutique Golf Course and Function Centre is much more than a golf course. Our fantastic club house is very popular for weddings, engagements, birthday parties, private functions, business meetings, corporate events and much more.
A key reason for our popularity is our location – perfectly positioned for those wanting a midway point catering for Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty visitors.
The Maxwell's Story
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 onsite B&B accommodation.
The 9 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, men and juniors 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. We welcome your visit.
