The Millbrook Golf Story
Eiichi Ishii, Millbrook Resort’s owner, tells the story of coming to own Millbrook. One of the most scenic golf courses in the world, Millbrook is simply an unforgettable Queenstown golfing experience.
Originally a wheat farm established in the 1860s to feed miners flocking to the area in search of gold, it became a makeshift hospital during World War One. The property was purchased by the Ishii family, from Japan, in 1993 who began a journey of transforming the rural farm with a majestic mountain outlook into the five-star golf resort that it is today.
Designed by renowned professional and master golfer Sir Bob Charles, and renovated by Greg Turner in October 2010, this 27 hole championship course offers three different 18 hole combinations. Set on 500 acres, Millbrook’s course is best described as a mix between the world-class immaculately manicured “Parklands” courses and “Links” courses, offering a variety of natural hazards and stunning scenery.
With extraordinary photo opportunities at every turn, the championship course offers three fabulous nine hole courses, each named after local prominent Queenstown landmarks- The Remarkables, The Arrow and The Coronet Nine. With five different tee positions and a variety of natural elements to contend with, Millbrook will delight all golfers.
