Home to three of New Zealand’s Top 15 golf courses, Arrowtown is Golf Central.
Arrowtown Golf Club has been around the longest – since 1937. It's golf's worst kept secret, famous for its dramatic setting and welcoming atmosphere. The fairways are rather less welcoming. Winding through the natural terrain, they're perfectly kept but are so tight that some call the course Narrowtown.
Millbrook Resort has three 9-hole courses that can be combined however you like. The world-class course, designed by Sir Bob Charles and renovated and extended by Greg Turner, is one of the most photogenic places to play golf in the country – playing there is an experience you'll never forget.
Along with Millbrook, The Hills Golf Club is the home of the New Zealand Golf Open. Sir Michael Hill's golf course is about much more than golf. Oversize sculptures dot the fairways, complementing the natural beauty of the course’s native flora, waterways and wetlands. The exclusive course may be privately owned, but there are some opportunities for visitors to play.
These three ridiculously beautiful courses make Arrowtown a paradise for those who like to chase a little white ball around. Which one will you choose?
The Hills Golf Club
Sir Michael Hill's private golf course in Arrowtown was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host The New Zealand Open. Set over 500 acres of land across a glacial valley.
