Queenstown Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

The Kelvin Heights course at Queenstown Golf Club, is one of the most scenic you'll ever play. Even the view from the car park is awesome. The course sits on a peninsula with the clear waters of Lake Wakatipu all around, and from every hole you feel you can reach out and touch the craggy mountain peaks that surround the lake. Spectacular views aside, the course itself is a good one. Constantly undulating and therefore a tad hilly, this very good design accommodates a few rocky outcrops and many tall pines. Not surprisingly, a few blind drives are needed to what often feel like tight fairways, so a long-iron or 3-wood may come in handy here, versus belting away with a driver. Of the many good holes that make up this layout, the plunging par-5 3rd is something akin to a golfing bungy jump (see Did You Know ?) and the par-4 5th wrapped around the lake's shore is fabulous. Unique, memorable and magnificent - make sure you play it !

Did you know?

Fitting in with the wonderful mountain scenery, even the clubhouse has a swiss chalet look to it. This area is noted for all manner of outdoor pursuits - especially skiing in the winter (in The Remarkables, Coronet Peak and other snowfields), and water sports of every description in the summer. Just north-east of Queenstown on Hwy 6 is the original site of the Kiwi initiated craze of bungy-jumping. The site is still going strong if you fancy a jump !
