DAY 1: Wednesday 18 March | QUEENSTOWN

Landing at Queenstown Airport, you will be transferred to the centre of Queenstown.  The town sits on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and against the backdrop of the magnificent Southern Alps.  It will be the perfect base to explore the stunning surroundings and natural wonders of the South Island.

We check in at the Crowne Plaza Queenstown Hotel, right in the centre of town and across from the lively Steamer Wharf with its great restaurants, bars and casino.

In the evening, we kick off our trip with a welcome dinner and drinks.  You will get acquainted with your group and surely make new friends already during this fabulous meal.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (D)

DAY 2: Thursday 19 March | QUEENSTOWN

The morning starts on a high note, as we head to Jack’s Point. Framed by the sheer vertical walls of the Remarkables Mountain Range and scenic Lake Wakatipu, the course is set through wetlands up to the very edge of the lake.  It is truly a beautiful course designed to embrace its natural surroundings with the minimum visual impact.  With those views and the chance of wildlife sightings, it will be even hard to focus on your game!
Optional Heli Golf: For an adventure to write home about, hop on an exciting helicopter journey to the exclusive course at the top of Cecil Peak. Practice your game at 4500 feet and aim well for your once-in-a-lifetime chance at a hole-in-one amidst the beauty of the Southern Alps.  Additional cost applies.

Non-golfers: Take this day to stroll around Queenstown at your own pace. Or you could be tempted by visiting the Queenstown Gardens, exploring a nature reserve or visiting one of the beautiful wineries in the area. Additional cost applies.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (B)

DAY 3: Friday 20 March | QUEENSTOWN

Another beautiful course is on our program for today.  We will tee off at Queenstown Golf Club, known locally as Kelvin Heights. Widely known as New Zealand’s most scenic golf course, we will be once again surrounded here by the spectacular Remarkables Mountain Range and the calm waters of Lake Wakatipu. The pine-tree lined fairways and the signature 5th hole are picture-perfect. After our round, a drink at the club house terrace is the best post-game strategy to enjoy the views.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (B)

DAY 4: Saturday 21 March | QUEENSTOWN

Today is a day at your leisure. Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world so the choices are plenty!

Optional Excursion: Milford Sound Day Tour with Cruise
An incredible natural wonder, Milford Sound is even more impressive than pictures can do it justice.  You will explore the famous Mirror Lakes and spectacular Christie Falls and enjoy a two-hour cruise through Fiordland National Park that will take your breath away.  You can search for dolphins, seals and the rare Fiordland crested penguins while soaking in some of nature’s best work.  Whether you choose to reach your destination by road (coach) or air (helicopter), this day will stay with you for a long time.  Additional cost applies.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (B)

DAY 5: Sunday 22 March | QUEENSTOWN

This morning we embark on a sightseeing tour of charming and quirky Arrowtown. A gold rush era village nestled on the banks of the Arrow River, surrounded by gorgeous mountain peaks. We will explore the Chinese settlement at the edge of the river, a tour favourite.

In the afternoon, we reach one of New Zealand’s most famous golf resorts – Millbrook. Designed by New Zealand’s Sir Bob Charles, the course hosted the 100th NZ Open in 2018.  It features impeccable conditions on both fairways and greens and challenging hazards and water features.  Its alpine and mountain backdrop round up a truly memorable experience.

Non-golfers: Take more time to explore Arrowtown and hop on a shuttle back into Queenstown where you can enjoy an afternoon exploring the city.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (B)

DAY 6: Monday 23 March | QUEENSTOWN

After breakfast, we make our way to Wanaka. The scenery here is breathtaking, with azure waters and mountainous surrounds.  In the small town, lovely boutique shops, cafes and art galleries will charm you.
After much exploration, the Wanaka Golf Club will be awaiting us for a group lunch. Overlooking the mountains and Lake Wanaka, this course is another beauty to add to the South Island list. The two nines are quite different from one another which makes for an exciting round in an enchanting setting.
Non-golfers: After lunch with the group, you are free to explore Wanaka and find the perfect souvenir or gift to bring home.
Hotel: Crowne Plaza Queenstown (B, L)

DAY 7: Tuesday 24 March | QUEENSTOWN

You can relax this morning and enjoy a leisurely lunch too before we embark on our journey to the Gibbston Valley.  The valley is known for its world-class pinot noir wines.  We will enjoy a tour and tasting at the Gibbston Valley Winery and visit New Zealand’s largest wine cave. Following our winery visit we will embark on the Skyline Gondola to the top of Bob’s Peak.  The views here of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu are formidable.
