Located 20 mins outside of Queenstown in a historic and charming mining town, Arrowtown GC was built without a single bunker. This course
dates back to the early 1900s and was formed by hand cart and
wheelbarrows. It was later expanded in the 1970s and today stands as a small
masterpiece for its use of existing landscape for design. Precision is required and a 3-wood is recommended over a Driver in most cases.
Although a new clubhouse was built in the 2000s, Arrowtown GC still uses an honesty box should players wish to get a round in when not actually open. Slip your greens fees into the box and away you go. Playing this course on a beautiful autumn day allows one to appreciate the beauty of New Zealand, especially when topped off with a meal or drink in Arrowtown after the round.
its humble beginnings, the Arrowtown Golf Club has built a unique first
class course, regarded by many as on of the finest courses in New
Zealand. Who needs bunkers when boulders will punish errant shots?
9th: From its raised tee this hole a great way to end the front nine and take in views of both the Crown Range and Coronet Peak.
13th: This 500 yard straight shot is not exactly the longest par-5 in the world, yet approach shots which are not straight are met with large rocks that frame this hole. Two cherry trees protect both sides of the green. In late September/early October these trees are a living postcard with pink flowers.
18th: After playing 17 holes and biting fingernails because of all of the boulders on this course this last hole is be trouble because of the pond on the left. A raised green slopes toward the pond so a drive toward the left (but not too far to where you are in the water) is best. Right-handed players then can fade the ball onto the green. Good luck.
