Millbrook Resort: Surrounded by high mountains and tree covered hills on all sides, Millbrook provides one of the very best resort experiences on the golfers' and non-golfers' trail in New Zealand. The golf, just one of many activities, is played on a full-blooded and immaculately maintained championship layout, designed by no less a golfing great than Sir Bob Charles. With outstanding scenery throughout, the course can be easy-going or tough and long - the choice is yours, depending on which tees you select.

Resort real estate does come into play on a few holes, but the overall feel is generally that of natural mountain splendour. The good-width fairways are set in a relatively open environment, accompanied by many pot bunkers and water hazards on at least seven of the holes. The superb greens are shaped and sized according to the demands of each hole, some large and slopey, others quite small. When recent tree-planting starts to mature, especially on the flatter back-nine, the course at Millbrook will simply continue to improve beyond the excellent experience that it already offers.

Did you know?

The Milltown luxury resort occupies what was originally a working farm. The old mill, still with turning waterwheel, is one of several historic buildings on the resort - it is now the Millhouse Restaurant. The use of local schist stone for many of the constructions, and the scattering of old farm machinery here and there, reinforces the resort's historic feel. | Nine new golf holes, the Coronet-nine opened for play in January 2010.

Published ranking

2020 NZ Golf Digest rating: 9th best course in New Zealand.
