Jack’s Point Golf Club
Traversing through wetlands to the edge of Lake Wakatipu, the Par 72, 6,961 yard Jack’s Point Golf Club is bounded by the Remarkables Mountain Range and Lake Wakatipu with steep bluffs, indigenous vegetation and wildlife. The course design works with nature, not against it. Fairways were designed with minimal excavation and careful plantings to complement the natural environment, but also to give the golfer a fighting chance. The scenic views here are, dare we say, remarkable!
The Hills Golf Club
Sir Michael Hill’s golf course in Arrowtown, The Hills Golf Club, was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host the New Zealand Open, and will host this tournament for the fourth time in 2014. The par 72 7,213 yard course features numerous elevated tees offering players excellent views of the challenges ahead and of the spectacular snow-capped mountain scenery. There are no parallel fairways and no two holes are alike. The course is dotted throughout with a stunning array of sculptures created by local and international artists, making play on this course truly unique.
Located just 50 minutes from Christchurch International Airport in the foothills of the Southern Alps, Terrace Downs par 72 course is set among spectacular mountain scenery. Terrace Downs is a long way from the sea, but it looks and feels in parts like a links course, while elsewhere it plays like a parkland course. The layout incorporates 11 lakes and 70 bunkers to test even the most experienced golfer. The Rakia Gorge and mountain vistas provide some of the most scintillating views in New Zealand.
Milbrook Resort Golf Course
Located in a natural alpine amphitheater against the backdrop of the Remarkables’ Mountain Range, The Milbrook Resort Golf Course consists of three 9’s, each named after Queenstown landmarks – The Remarkables, The Arrow and The Coronet, providing players here 3 different 18-hole combinations. The original 18 designed by native Kiwi Sir Bob Charles has been significantly updated along with the addition of the third new 9 – The Coronet – by Greg Turner & Scott McPherson. The Remarkables features thick rough, elevation changes and ponds; water hazards dot the final four of the The Arrow; and The Coronet features exposed rock and water hazards requiring shot-making skill.
