          Queenstown Kelvin Heights has gained a reputation as perhaps New Zealand’s most scenic course, and, therefore, one of the most scenic courses in the world. Flanked by dramatic, serrated ridges like Queenstown’s aptly named Remarkables and the deep blue of Lake Wakatipu, the hilly plateau and lakeside course offers ever-changing vistas that beg to be photographed. Its signature hole, the 332-meter (363-yard) par-4 5th, is the best known single hole in New Zealand because of its left-handed crescent hugging the lakeshore.

          With no sand, very little water, relatively short distances, fairly open tee shots, few blind approaches, lush, irrigated fairways, reasonable greens, low prices, and fantastic scenery, Queenstown Golf Club, Kelvin Heights course offers one of New Zealand’s best golfing experiences.
          It gets better. Even on the finest of days the course remains uncrowded, despite being open to visitors seven days a week in what must be the outdoor sports capital of New Zealand.
          The Queenstown Golf Club opened its Kelvin Heights course in April, 1975. In the quarter-century that has followed the course has matured, with the growth of its many native pines closing in the fairways somewhat, making it necessary to stay on the fairways in order to score well here.

HEIGHTS SUBURB INTO THE REMARKABLE BLUE WATERS OF LAKE WAKATIPU.

          Queenstown is blessed with superb weather at all times of year, set as it is in the rain shadow of New Zealand’s spectacular Southern Alps. The abundance of sunny days makes playing Kelvin Heights in ideal conditions a strong likelihood. However, long sunny, dry spells means the parts of the course that are not irrigated can become cement-like hardpan — yet another reason to stay in the fairways.

THE SIGNATURE 5TH HOLE IN AUTUMN

IS THIS THE MOST SCENIC HOLE IN NEW ZEALAND GOLF?

          In its short history Queenstown Kelvin Heights has gained a reputation as New Zealand’s most scenic course, and, therefore, one of the most scenic courses in the world. Flanked by dramatic, serrated ridges like Queenstown’s aptly named Remarkables and the deep blue of Lake Wakatipu, the hilly plateau and lakeside course offers ever-changing vistas that beg to be photographed. Its signature hole, the 332-meter (363-yard) par 4 5th, is the best known single hole in New Zealand because of its left-handed crescent hugging the lakeshore. Several other holes rival its beauty: the par-5 4th, the downhill par-3 10th, and the hillside par-5 11th and par-4 12th all offer good golfing challenge coupled with distracting scenery — keep a camera handy.

THE 'AMEN CORNER' OF THE KELVIN HEIGHTS COURSE: THE 4TH & 6TH GREENS AND THE 5TH TEE.

           When President Bill Clinton came to  Queenstown he stayed and played at nearby Millbrook Resort. Millbrook’s fine course, more wide open and nearly as scenic as Kelvin Heights, was, we understand, not the President’s first choice, but, for security reasons, was selected over Queenstown Golf Club. We’re lucky. We get to play both courses.
