Co-host of the 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 New Zealand Open’s, Millbrook has distinctive award-winning style and qualities – not least of which is the awesome sight of The Remarkables mountain range in the background. Sir Bob Charles designed the first 18 holes of this championship course for its opening in 1993 – with Greg Turner renovating the course and extending it to 27 holes in 2010. The Coronet Nine course has a NZCR of 73.7 and a slope index of 129 of the black tees. Like many courses in New Zealand, it is a mix of parkland and links styles with tussocks, streams, schist stone, trees and buildings forming hazards for the golfer. Set among 200 hectares (500 acres) of natural landscapes and rolling hills, golfers also enjoy views of Lake Hayes. Millbrook has been a partner with PaR nz Golfing Holidays for 17 years, hosting the annual Millbrook Masters.

On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, the 18-hole championship course follows the natural terrain below The Remarkables mountain range, presenting the golfer with tussock grasslands, stone walls and rock outcrops, steep bluffs, and native bush. It has a NZCR of 73.5 and slope index of 140 of the black tees. John Darby, who created The Hills, also designed Jack’s Point. The course was included in the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World list shortly after it opened in 2009. It has a dramatic setting in the Wakatipu basin, and Darby deliberately gave each hole a distinctive perspective and character while being sensitive to the natural landforms. The clubhouse incorporates strong design elements such as trusses made from Southland sale yard timber that links it to the South Island’s rich farming history.
