Where2Golf says: 

Jack's Point Golf Course: This relatively new course has a name and reputationthat's already reverberating around the world of golf - if you are not looking up at the stunning Remarkables mountain range, you are probably looking across the wide expanse of Lake Wakatipu - on many holes the stunning panoramas combine both lake and mountains - complementing and blending into the spectacular scenery, is a fabulous out-and-back layout, brilliantly designed by John Darby - with infinity greens backdropped by the lake - dry stone walls to drive over - always undulating, always dramatic and scenic - Jack's Point exudes an open and classically linksy character - nobody said golf was intended to be easy, which parts of this layout certainly aren't - but nobody said golf was supposed to be this scenic either - generally good-width fairways and all playing surfaces immaculately maintained - with a green fee substantially less than the other big new name in town (The Hills) its no wonder Jack's Point has already put a big smile on the faces of thousands of visiting golfers - quickly gaining a world-class reputation that's spreading way beyond the shores of New Zealand.

Did you know?

The "Jack" of Jack's Point is not as many believe something connected with the Golden Bear (Jack Nicklaus), but rather with a local Maori hero called Jack Tewa. In the winter of 1862, "Maori Jack" as he was known locally, risked his own life attempting to save two of his companions (Rogers and Mitchell) after their boat overturned on the lake in a freezing, violent squall. Although Rogers eventually succumbed to the appalling conditions, Jack's actions (and those of a mysterious collie dog) certainly saved Mitchell's life.
