Set in a dramatic natural amphitheatre of bare rock surrounded by the high, snowcapped peaks of the Remarkables, a round of golf at Millbrook is both a test of golfing skills and focus. Can you keep your eye on the game?
Just 20 minutes from Queenstown and less than five minutes from the charming Arrowtown, Millbrook is playable throughout the year, even during winter.
Originally designed by New Zealand golfing legend Sir Bob Charles and renovated by Greg Turner in 2010 with the addition of a new nine, the 27 hole facility is brilliantly conceived and shaped from the rugged mountain landscape.
The three nines at Millbrook are all named after prominent local landmarks.
The Arrow Nine, with its island green par 3 9th hole; the Remarkables Nine, offering some of the best views in Queenstown and the Coronet Nine each offer a different playing experience. The newest nine holes, the Coronet Nine, have been designed with a common distinctive feature – multiple options from tee to green. Designers Greg Turner and Scott Macpherson have laid out the challenge through their works and anyone who plays shots successfully will be rewarded.
Millbrook is best described as an alpine links course, offering a variety of natural hazards including tussock, streams, schist and trees. Distances on the three nines range from 2,370 - 3,328 metres. Golf carts with GPS are available, along with a fully stocked proshop, premium rental equipment and instruction from PGA Professionals.
The resort at Millbrook has five types of onsite accommodation from hotel rooms to large fairway homes, multiple dining options and activities, including a spa.
Millbrook is also a co-host of New Zealand Open, the country’s premier men’s golf event, with neighbouring golf course The Hills, which, along with Jack’s Point, is just a short distance away.
Simply put, Millbrook is an unforgettable Queenstown golfing experience.
