Jack's Point Golf Course

Nestled amongst the Remarkables and jutting into Lake Wakatipu Jack's point boasts of spectacular golf conveniently located just outside of Queenstown.

Jack's Point enjoys not only a backdrop of the Remarkables mountain range but panoramas of Lake Wakatipu as well. John Darby (Millbrook, Clearwater, The Hills) may have surpassed his prior projects through minimal excavation and using the features of the land to integrate into the golfing experience. Jack's Point is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful places to play golf in New Zealand.

Jack's Point derives its name from a man named Jack Tewa. In the winter of 1862 he capsized with two other men in a boat crossing Lake Wakatipu. Avoiding hypothermia, Jack was able to swim ashore and tow the boat behind him- saving one of the men in the process and earning a medal from the Royal Humane Society of Britain. The medal remains at nearby museum and Jack got a golf course named after him.

Enjoy the out-and-back layout complete with with infinity greens, stone walls (which players will need to carry) and generally wide fairways. Certain sections of the course can present a challenge especially with the wind blowing off of the lake, but all playing surfaces are always immaculately maintained.

Signature Holes:

8th: There are many holes which one may refer to as "signature" on this course, but this par-5 plays alongside Lake Wakatipu. With the length to clear the fairway bunkers on the left side, the approach is to a raised green.

Customer reviews

From all of us, thank you for a fabulous trip to New Zealand! We cannot begin to tell you how much we loved everything you put together for us! Every detail ran like clock work and each lodge was better than the last! A highlight was our daughter’s engagement at Cape Kidnappers where we were spoiled by the staff to a lovely wine cellar dinner! But add that to all the heli fishing and fine golf everywhere, we could not have had a more memorable, special trip! Many thanks for a great job on the part of you and your team.

What a fabulous itinerary you made for us. It was perfect!

Wonderful country, delightful people, delicious food, and amazing scenery like no other. I guess our only major complaint is that we didn't have longer to see more of the country! You really planned it well for us. It felt balanced in the way of activities, driving days, photo opportunities, even some R&R in the afternoons.
