Auckland golf resort to reopen under the Rydges brand

Event Hospitality and Entertainment has added its first golf resort to its portfolio of properties, with the addition of Rydges Formosa Golf Resort in Auckland.

Formerly known as Formosa Golf Resort in Beachlands, the property is undergoing an extensive multi-million dollar renovation of the golf course and its surrounding facilities.

The rebranded hotel will reopen in late-November, with new owners, Beachlands South Limited Partnership.

“The resort will feature 50 refurbished one bedroom villas that can be configured into two-bedroom villas, well equipped conference facilities, a restaurant and bar, and onsite health facilities, a new driving range and a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by Sir Bob Charles,” said Event Hotels and Resorts general manager for New Zealand operations, Simon White.

The new resort’s meeting spaces will have a capacity of up to 300 people.

Marcus Keenan, who is currently the general manager of Rydges Wellington, has been appointed to manage the new property.
