The Clearwater Golf Course has proven itself as a venue for international professional golf over 13 consecutive years, yet it offers a rewarding experience to all visitors from the six tee choices.
Walk in the footsteps of Clearwater graduates such as Jason Dufner, Bubba Watson, Jason Day. Jimmy Walker and most recently Lydia Ko, who in February 2015 posted a course and career record low score of 61 whilst ranked as the World Number 1 female player.
With its glistening spring-fed lakes, Clearwater lives up to its name, providing a lush oasis close to the city and Christchurch International Airport that offers a golfing escape and a change of pace that few destinations can match. A magnificent 18-hole course awaits the international traveller and those closer to home. The course is complemented by superb practice areas and impressive accompanying facilities including a fleet of modern electric golf carts equipped with GPS.
Set in a natural alpine amphitheatre against the backdrop of the Remarkables Mountain Range, this 27 hole golf course exploits the dramatic terrain fully, delivering world-class golf. Millbrook is simply an unforgettable Queenstown golfing experience.
Designed by renowned professional and master golfer Sir Bob Charles, and renovated by Greg Turner in October 2010 with the addition of the Coronet Nine. Surely one of the most magical golfing venues in the world, Millbrook offers a 27-hole course brilliantly conceived and shaped from the rugged mountain landscape. A breath taking environment to tee off at and with extraordinary photo opportunities at every turn, our championship course offers three fabulous nine hole courses, each named after local prominent Queenstown landmarks- The Remarkables, The Arrow and The Coronet Nine
With a backdrop of 2300 vertical metres of the Remarkables mountain range and an armchair view of an outstanding lake panoramas, Jack's Point Golf course is one of the most visually spectacular in the world. As an 18 hole par 72 championship course it offers golfers an exciting challenge with five tee positions to choose from, providing all golfers an unforgettable golf experience.
The course has been designed around the natural landscape, with minimal excavation. The course measures 6388 metres (6986 yards) from the championship tees and is built on the most spectacular of Jack's Point terrain, weaving through native tussock grasslands, dramatic rock outcrops, steep bluffs and swathes of native bush to the edge of Lake Wakatipu. Located beneath the Remarkables mountain range, Jack's Point is only 20 minutes from downtown Queenstown.
The Hills was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host the New Zealand Open. Set over 500 acres of land across a glacial valley the layout highlights the dramatic elevation changes and rocky schist outcrops that are a feature of the area.
