Jacks Point, New Zealand

Easily accessible from most major Australian centres, Queenstown in New Zealand’s South Island has some of the most spectacular golf courses on the planet.

The most recently opened of these Queenstown courses is Jacks Point, which runs along the edges of Lake Wakatipu and provides breath taking views of the Remarkables Mountain Range.

In fact, the views alone could keep a golfer occupied while walking around all 6388 metres of Jacks Point. The fact there just happens to be a world class golf course with some of the most amazing views and incredible golf holes anywhere, is more than a bonus.

From the opening hole, one could be forgiven for not being fully focused on the first tee shot. With fairways and green perched above the crystal waters of Lake Wakatipu there are many visual distractions on your way to the 18th.

It is difficult to pick out a signature hole at Jacks Point, there are just so many that will last in the memory. For me, the short, downhill par three 7th and the long Par five 17th are two that stand out but Jacks Point has so many contrasts and defining features that every hole will be remembered.

The food, beverages and Kiwi hospitality waiting for you in the clubhouse are also second to none. The perfect way to relax after your round, but your thoughts will no doubt turn to the next time you will be able to tackle this magnificent golf course.
