Lakes Resort, Pauanui has been the dream of Gary and Angie MacDougall since they purchased this hidden valley back in 1997. At first Gary and Angie had intentions of occupying purely for lifestyle purposes but soon realised the potential of the property could be best suited to that of a high quality golf resort and gated residential community.
In partnership with Trevor & Linda Toohill and Richard & Susan Herbert, the concept of Lakes Resort, Pauanui is now a reality.
A significant challenge was how to retain the pristine native wetlands with its abundance of native flora and fauna whilst creating a world class golfing facility and residential community.
To do this the services of Canadian golf course designers, Sid Puddicombe Associates, were engaged to create the very special course that we have today.
Their task was to sculptor a golf course of the highest world standard ensuring all of the natural beauty of the area was retained but at the same time allowing the course to be a challenge to both low handicap and casual golfers alike.
The result they have achieved has exceeded all expectations.
