We saw Jacks Point on the Internet when we were planning our trip and left it to the last course we played while on holiday in Queenstown. What an experience. We lucked in with the weather and were gifted with the most spectacular views. The course is stunning... the fairways and greens in perfect condition. Challenging but not over the top... The natural elements of the course are also beautiful. Andrew in the pro shop was great and couldn't be more helpful. Well worth it and we definitely look forward to our next visit.

I have now played Jacks Point four times. I have enjoyed the course and views each time. It is challenging - the average golfer loses three balls a round on this course. But after playing the course a few times i now understand it and believe that one can score on it quite well.

The first hole is quite straightforward but the next three are all tough up hill slogs. Add 2-3 clubs depending on the wind, to get to the greens.

the key to this course is to be on the fairway. If you miss it is most probably going to be a lost ball or an unplayable lie. So sometimes 3 wood may be a better option than driver.

There is some distance between holes so think about taking a cart. They are not essential, however. I personally preferred the course more the times I walked it.

the price is getting up there (NZ$185) but this is one of the best golf courses in New Zealand and the views are fantastic.

Service is great, and the bar and restaurant are very good. It might pay to book a table for lunch at the same time as booking your round of golf.

This course is one of NZ's best. $185 for NZ affiliated players is a little on the steep side but it is well worth playing, so long as there's not a howling gale. The fairways are some of the best I have played on. You will lose plenty of balls if you miss the fairway but don't worry there are also plenty to be found. On one hole we found more than a dozen while looking for one we had lost.

Definitely one of the most spectacular golf courses I've played anywhere in the world. Challenging, but fair, unless the wind picks up too much. Greens are true and views amazing.
