INTERACTIVE MAP

New Zealand’s South Island is the home of soaring mountains, pristine nature, friendly locals, and picture perfect vineyards. On this tour, you’ll be transported to the purest natural landscapes, from wildlife to wineries, from glacial valleys to star-filled skies, and some of the best golf the South Island has to offer.

Bubbling with activity, Queenstown will be our base for 9 fun-filled days exploring the region, indulging in new adventures and playing spectacular golf courses. For your first round, Jack’s Point is one of the world’s great golfing experiences with views of Lake Wakatipu, and the razorback Remarkables Mountain Range as a backdrop. This course is so sensational you’ll play it twice! You’ll go on to visit Queenstown Golf Club, internationally regarded as one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world.

Our adventures then take us to Arrowtown, a charming and quirky gold rush village nestled below the beautiful peaks surrounding the tranquil Arrow River. This is where we’ll play Millbrook, home of the NZ PGA. Finally, Wanaka will delight you with its laidback feel and scenic golf course.

On this tour, you can opt to fly over the Southern Alps for a unique golf experience teeing off at over 4500 feet high. You can also choose to discover New Zealand’s unmissable Milford Sound. We invite you to discover more about this beautiful tour.

DAY 2: Thursday 19 March | QUEENSTOWN

The level of excitement builds as we are playing Jack’s Point this morning. Like Queenstown, it is bounded by the 2300 vertical metres of the Remarkables Mountain Range and Lake Wakatipu and traverses through wetland to the lake edge. This course is a real treat for the eye as it was designed around the natural landscape, with minimal excavation. You’ll be encountering steep bluffs and wildlife whilst experiencing spectacular 360 views – you won’t want to leave! This championship course offers golfers an exciting challenge with five tee positions to choose from, providing all golfers an unforgettable golf experience.

 

Optional Heli Golf: Enjoy an exciting helicopter flight to the exclusive course at the top of Cecil Peak. Drive, chip and putt out at 4500 feet in the Southern Alps as you attempt to conquer, once and for all, your hole-in-one dream. You’ll feel on top of the world. Additional cost applies.

 

Non-golfers: The day is at your leisure. Discover Queenstown at your own pace. Perhaps you’d like to take a stroll in the Queenstown Gardens, explore a nature reserve or visit one of 75 wineries. Additional cost applies.

DAY 3: Friday 20 March | QUEENSTOWN

Today we take to the fairways of Queenstown Golf Club, known locally as Kelvin Heights. Voted New Zealand’s most scenic golf course, it is set in the amphitheatre of the famous Remarkables Mountain Range and surrounded by the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu.

The journey to Milford Sound is just as spectacular as the destination itself, whether you travel by road (coach) or air (helicopter). Observe one of the world’s most spectacular sceneries: ancient alpine forest, waterfalls, the famous Mirror Lakes and stunning Christie Falls.

 

Hop aboard the Milford Sound nature cruise, where you’ll spend more than two hours cruising through the untouched wilderness of Fiordland National Park. Experience the cool spray of a waterfall as we move in close to sheer rock faces and watch out for dolphins, seals, and the rare Fiordland crested penguins. This is a day tour you won’t forget. Additional cost applies.

After our morning of sightseeing, we make our way to New Zealand’s best known golf resort – Millbrook. Designed by New Zealand’s doyen of golf, Sir Bob Charles, and home of the 100th NZ Open 2018, Millbrook features impeccably groomed fairways and greens, demanding hazards and meandering water courses, all surrounded by the alpine backdrop of the Remarkables Mountain Range.

Queenstown is a beautiful destination with wonderful sites, great activities, delicious restaurants and spectacular golf courses. The tour was hosted by Graeme who could not be more obliging and friendly.

Kim and Jenny, 2017 NZ South Island

Highly recommended!

There is lots of golf and well spaced out. There is a day free to book your own activity… or not.

Anne, 2017 NZ South Island

It was a great trip. Graeme did a wonderful job. I will always recommend Go Golfing again.

Janelle, 2017 NZ South Island

Excellent tour!

Very well organised by Graeme (our host). Golf courses were THE WOW especially Jacks Point and Millbrook.

Judy, 2017 NZ South Island

The golf courses were superb, all of them. The location of the hotel in Queenstown was ideal, and what a town. Loved the lay days and the visit to Arrowtown. Final dinner was very good. Graham was an excellent host who made the whole trip run exceedingly smoothly.

Bob and Jean, 2017 NZ South Island

It is our 3rd tour to South Island NZ with Go Golfing. We just love the place. The golf courses are all amazing, especially Jack’s Point. Queenstown is the most beautiful place to just wander around the town enjoying the amazing views.

Sue and Paul, 2017 NZ South Island

Fantastic experience and well organised.

A good time was had and enjoyed everyone’s company. Accommodation was in an excellent location, just so handy to town and everything.

Kerryn, 2017 NZ South Island

Awesome!

We had a great time with the crew joining the south island tour. Host Graeme was again very helpful and nothing was ever a problem. All the golf courses were great and an absolute pleasure to play. Accommodation was fantastic…

Mark, 2017 NZ South Island

Our host Graeme made our trip very easy. Our fellow golfers definitely added lots of fun and good conversation. Our day doing the winery, cave, gondola and luge was something Desley will always remember as her inner daredevil came to the front and she went parasailing off the mountain. Thanks GO GOLFING for another memorable trip.
