Queenstown, New Zealand has become one of the “must visit” tourist destinations in the world, whether it be for the acclaimed snow sports or the amazing golf courses in the region. International Golf Specialists has seen a big increase in recent years for interest in golfing tours and packages to Queenstown.

The best time to visit Queenstown for golf is between November and April, where the days are sunny and the longest daylight. There is also a lot if interest in the NZ Open which is normally staged in early March in Queenstown and where International Golf Specialists hosts an exclusive golf tour around this professional golf event.

As with our ever popular Barnbougle Dunes tours, this Queenstown adventure will bring golfers from around Australia to enjoy 5 rounds at Queenstown’s finest golf courses, including Jack’s Point, Millbrook, Kelvin Heights and Arrowtown Golf Course.

This Queenstown golf getaway will offer so much more than the golfing experience of a lifetime. The town is packed with adventure and adrenaline activities for the brave at heart, and some of the finest restaurants and most exciting bars anywhere in the country are found here and in the historic gold mining settlement of Arrowtown.

IGS hosted a golf group from Newcastle to Queenstown in December and the feedback was very positive. The group had a week in Queenstown with 4 rounds of golf, then hired some minivans and drove to Christchurch via the Alpine Way through Otago and Canterbury. Not only did they enjoy the golf on offer, they experienced an exhilarating ride in the Shotover Express, and also a lake cruise and dinner to Walters Peak Farm for an unforgettable evening. Wine tasting at some of the world-famous Otago wineries was also included to complement this memorable golf tour experience.

Group leader Allan MacDonald summed it up “some of our group had not been to Queenstown before, and all they have talked about since the trip is when can they return. We agreed that as there is so much to do and experienced, you need at least 10 days there to take it all in. International Golf Specialists did a great job in organising the trip, and we will be using them again for another golfing trip in 2019”!
