Although $NZD165 for visitors, (plus $65 for rental clubs), beautiful views, reasonable shape course. Take the Water Taxi from downtown Queenstown, & walk 500 yards to the Pro Shop.
Gorgeous views of Lake Wakatipu from all over the course.
greens in good shape.

This is one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever played. It's set on a peninsula within Lake Wakatipu, just across the way from Queenstown. From there you have amazing views of the surrounding mountains and the striking turquoise water of the lake. The course itself is akin to a municipal course in the U.S. -- adequately, but not beautifully maintained. Plenty of brown patches in the fairways and an aging clubhouse. Wind is tremendous on the course, due to the setting at the end of a peninsula -- keep your shots low and straight, and bring an extra sleeve of balls just in case. I paid NZ$80 for 9 holes (they let me play an extra 4 free due to the convenient location of the 13th green next to the clubhouse) and rented clubs for another NZ$25. Worth it, but a bit pricey for what you get -- even considering the high prices of Queenstown. They don't have twilight fees -- consider playing at the nearby Millbrook golf course after 3pm, where prices are similar to Queenstown Golf Club but the course is world class (site of the NZ open in 2014).

Played here while staying in Queenstown and found the course to be a great layout in fair condition. It is worth playing this course for the views alone - spectacular scenery! Very steep in places so hire a buggy if you are not use to walking. Well worth the visit.

enjoyed a late afternoon round with hired clubs and it was very enjoyable indeed- friendly staff, course in great condition, fabulous views from every hole, and hardly anyone else around- what's not to like!
