Friday 2nd 2016 - Alison Dench - Arrowtown Top 10’s - My Arrowtown - Media


A recent article in Australian Golf Digest has confirmed what locals have known for years – that Arrowtown is simply unrivalled when it comes to golf. All three Arrowtown courses – The Hills, Millbrook, and Arrowtown Golf Club – made it into the magazine’s top 15 courses in New Zealand.

The Hills came in at number 6 thanks to its elevated tees with panoramic views, accommodating greens, award-winning clubhouse and the sculptures that dot the course. Not far behind, at 8, was scenic Millbrook with its 27 holes weaving a route around lakes and schist rock. And coming in at number 13 were the tight front nine and the rolling open back nine of Arrowtown Golf Club, at its most dramatic in April when colourful autumn foliage drapes the hillsides.

Arrowtown must surely have the highest density of top-notch courses anywhere in New Zealand, if not the world. And with Jack’s Point and Queenstown Golf Club, also in the Top 40, less than 30 minutes’ drive away – as well as a fourth Arrowtown course proposed for Hogans Gully – this little town is truly a golfer’s paradise.
