Get golfing at the remarkable Jack’s Point Golf Course
Tired of the same old golf trip? Book an escape to Queenstown and experience the unique and breathtaking setting of a Jack's Point golf adventure.
For a unique golf setting flanked by jagged mountains and delightfully blue waters, choose Jack’s Point as part of your next golf tour.
After you land in the Queenstown International Airport, pick up your rental car and drive an easy 12 minutes south over the Kawarau River to the Jack's Point Golf Course.
The Jack's Point Golf Course is an 18-hole, 72-par paradise that rolls in scenic waves over gentle slopes and bushy tussocks. It's around 6,388 metres long and features four tee points and a range of obstacles.
However, one of the aspects of this course you will truly remember is the panoramic view that surrounds you. On all sides a dramatic South Island mountain landscape stands proudly form the undulating terrain, topped by jagged peaks and rocky outcrops. Behind you is the picturesque Lake Wakatipu, a lightning-bolt shaped lake that is perpetually beautiful, no matter the weather. On days of clear-blue skies, which are frequent during all seasons, the waters light up a brilliant azure blue and sparkle like the night sky.
Playing on the course is very affordable, plus they also offer a discounted return rate should you decide to come back within seven days (which you'll want to). If you don't have clubs and shoes, don't worry, as Jack's Point can supply these for minimal fees as well.
After you have finished your round, pop over to the Jack's Point Restaurant for a bite to eat, open seven days. Using rustic, traditional materials the Jack's Point Restaurant has been styled around a good old fashioned Kiwi wool shed, fitting seeing as how Jack's Point used to be high country farmland. If you happen by during the Kiwi school holidays your kids will eat free! So it's well worth keeping an eye on those dates.
