Kauri Cliffs and Other New Zealand Highlights Revealed in January 2008 Issue of Golf Odyssey

SHORT HILLS, N.J. (January 15, 2008) - Imagine having a Pebble Beach-like course as your personal playground, an elegant but tranquil lodge that caters to your every need, cuisine worthy of the Michelin Guide, and off-course pursuits ranging from helicopter tours to wild boar hunting, and you can begin to understand why Golf Odyssey: The Insider's Guide to Sophisticated Golf Travel calls New Zealand's Kauri Cliffs, "the finest single-course golf resort in the world" in it's January 2008 issue.

A bold statement, to be sure, but perhaps the real shocker is that Golf Odyssey's editors were able to conduct their thorough inspection of Kauri Cliffs and New Zealand's other top golf courses and resorts while missing only five days of work, shattering the myth that a New Zealand golf vacation requires a minimum of two weeks. Furthermore, the article reveals why playing the first round of golf upon arrival in New Zealand can be much easier than when traveling to Scotland or Ireland. Included in the story is a detailed, day-by-day guide to the best places to play, stay, dine and unwind.

"This is a perfect example of how our first-hand experience and expert advice give our readers a leg up," said David Baum, the Golf Odyssey newsletter's publisher and editor-in-chief. "Those who listen to 'common knowledge' might never take a New Zealand golf vacation, and therefore miss out on one of the best golf experiences in the world."

In addition to its review of New Zealand, Golf Odyssey's January 2008 issue contains insider tips and expert advice about taking a Palm Springs golf vacation, including details on a new course that is, "an excellent value" and "an outstanding addition" to the public golf lineup, and an insider's look at the venerable La Quinta Resort & Club. Along with evaluating the resort's recent renovations and the best on- and off-site dining options, Golf Odyssey's evaluations serve as a "decision guide" with respect to the resort's five courses...and a valuable recommendation about the one that should be skipped altogether.

Golf Odyssey's January 2008 issue also contains buzz-worthy golf vacation news in its bi-monthly section called, What the Golf World is Talking About. In this installment, there are surprising developments about Donald Trump's proposed Scotland golf resort and details on a brand new way to make tee times on all seven of St. Andrews' golf courses, including the famous Old Course and the highly anticipated Castle Course.
