Golf News

Adventure Central has put together packages for the avid golfer with access to the best the region has to offer. As members of The Hills and Arrowtown Golf Club we are certified golf nuts and welcome the chance to indulge clients into the Queenstown golfing scene. Non golfers are also well catered for with art, wine tours or onsite therapy. Queenstown golfers have got it very good, some of NZ’s finest courses are here and with these views you can see why its rated so highly. 5 top quality courses are in the district each one quite different from the other.

Established courses Arrowtown Golf Course, Kelvin Heights and Millbrook Resort are all rated very highly and provide a great test with mature tree lined fairways and superbly presented greens and fairways.

However, if your after the best, you’ll need to play at the “new” courses Jacks Point or The Hills.

Jacks Point is a new semi links style course, designed by John Darby. It provides a stern test, with challenging holes for the straight hitter and trouble for the wayward hitter. Situated below the impressive Remarkables range, the uninterrupted vistas south and west over Lake Wakatipu can also make for a windy experience if the Southerly or Sou’ Wester blows. Your reward for playing Jacks Point will be some of the best views over Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown.

The Hills also designed by John Darby is a fabulous indulgence for owner, jeweller and golfer Micheal Hill. The exclusive environment and incredible installation art creates an immense sense of occasion which the course backs up with a magnificent 18 holes.  A true golfing experience. Always in top shape and with only 100+ members you wont get caught up in the field. Adventure Central is proud to be a member of The Hills.

Adventure Central  can organise all golfing adventures, equipment, transport and logistics. We are happy to play or caddy for you and/or arrange activities for the non golfers.

Often its a good idea to make a full day of it and explore the wider region after/before golf and tour through Arrowtown, the Gibbston Valley vineyards and surrounding art galleries that are established around the area.
