Queenstown Golf

Start cleaning your golf clubs. With seven golf courses within a 45-minute drive of Queenstown, New Zealand's adventure capital is the perfect place for a golf getaway.

Queenstown has it all: impeccably groomed championship courses, family-friendly nine-hole courses and even an over-the-top hole accessible only via helicopter. See? Choose from so many adventures waiting to happen. As a bonus, all of Queenstown's golf courses deliver amazing mountain views.

If you'd rather watch the pros at work, snag tickets to the New Zealand Open. Queenstown's The Hills and Millbrook Resort host the tournament every autumn.

Whether you're a solo golfer or planning a trip with your buddies, Queenstown has a golf adventure you'll never forget. With so many things to do off the course, too, Queenstown is a perfect golf getaway.

Full 18-Hole Courses

  • The Hills Golf Club in Arrowtown is a 6,596m par-72 championship course. It's a private club, but they accept a few visitors each day by booking.
  • Jack's Point Golf is a challenging championship course with views of The Remarkables.
  • With water on three sides and sweeping mountain views, Queenstown Golf Club is often called the most scenic course in New Zealand.

Short Golf Courses

  • Planning a trip but don't have time for a full 18 holes? Several golf courses in Queenstown have shorter courses for your itinerary, too.
  • For a down-to-earth golf day, Frankton Golf Centre is a family-friendly nine-hole course that works well for beginners and intermediates alike.
  • The super scenic Queenstown Golf Club offers discounted nine-hole rates for shorter days on the course.

Unique Golf

  • Over the Top Golf really is over the top. This par-3 hole is on a mountaintop, making it one of the most picturesque golf holes in the world.
  • How do you get there? A helicopter will whisk you to the 4,500-foot hole. Players drive, chip and putt on the top.
  • Many golfers think of Over the Top Golf as the 19th hole. A driver will meet you at any Queenstown golf course green and take you to the helipad to begin your adventure.
