And some of New Zealand's best golf courses
Queenstown has it all, the town itself has a population of only 14,300 but has the energy of a small city. Some of New Zealand's best restaurants have migrated south to Queenstown and it is also the gateway into the tranquil Milford Sounds.
The Remarkables mountain tops are your amphitheater to your right and the stunning Lake Wakatipu to your left - this is just a small snippet of the beautiful views Jacks Point golf course offers. Jacks Point is not just all scenes, the golf course is a challenging championship golf course that wouldn't be out of place on the PGA Tour. Jacks Point is a short scenic drive of 20 mins from the town center and a 12 mins drive from the airport.
Queenstown golf course, also known as Kelvin Heights, is set on the tip of the peninsula across from Queenstown's town centre. The golf course has been renowned to be said as having some of the most picturesque views in the world, the course is encompassed by the crystal blue water of Lake Wakatipu and has the amphitheater of the Remarkables in the foreground. Queenstown Golf course offers more than just the scenes, the course is challenging and rewards a more strategic management game plan being not overly long.
Millbrook Resort is the pioneer of golf resorts to Queenstown and also luxury resorts in New Zealand. The multiple award winning resort has a peaceful, serene feel to the place and offers a lot more than a golfing experience.

Arrowtown is a small boutique township just on the outskirts of Queenstown with gold mining origins and many of historic tales to tell - it is well worth the visit. Arrowtown golf course can be overshadowed by its neighbouring resorts but it holds its own among them, having been ranked inside the top 20 courses in New Zealand. The course is set tucked away in the hills creating a stunning backdrop to view while playing, the shorter layout rewards accurate drives and masterly finesse around the greens.
