Tairua is a picturesque seaside village on the Eastern Seaboard of the Coromandel Peninsula and is only 1 ½ to 2 hour drive from Auckland or the Waikato.
From Mt Paku (at the entrance to the Tairua Harbour) there are magic views along the Coastline, Tairua Ocean Beach, Tairua Harbour, Across to Pauanui, The Coromandel Ranges and out to to the Alderman Islands, Slipper Island and beyond.
Being centrally located on the Coromandel Peninsula we are only the proverbial “hop, step and jump” to Whitianga, Cooks Beach, Ha Hei, Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Whangamata and a little further away Matarangi, Kuotuna and Coromandel.
The Tairua Country Club is located on the Main Highway and almost in the centre of town. We are only a short walk to the town centre and only minutes away for those golfers who wish to walk play their Golf or Croquet.
We welcome all – members and visitors alike to join with us at the Tairua Golf and Country Club to play your sport and enjoy the fellowship afterwards in our friendly club rooms
