Queenstown Golfing Getaway

30 November 2016

Queenstown is a world class golfing destination with five spectacular full courses all boasting stunning scenery within 25 minutes’ drive of central Queenstown. There are also plenty of options to relax, indulge or dabble in some adventure while you’re here. Queenstown really is the perfect destination for your summer golfing getaway.

There are so many options it’s sometimes hard to know where to start planning! So we have refined the options down to our favourites.

Queenstown Golf & Accommodation Packages – tailor-made to suit you

Queenstown’s gorgeous golf courses each have their own unique features, so we recommend playing at more than one over your stay. At MajorDomo we have an extensive portfolio of private villas, luxury lodges and boutique hotels & apartments located around Queenstown and Arrowtown that will be a perfect base for your days on the green.

There are several pre-prepared golf and accommodation package options ranging from 3 days to a week, from centrally located boutique hotel accommodation to exclusive luxury lodge stays, from golf only to winery and dining inclusions.

If you are after the most unique experience however, MajorDomo can create custom made tours by hand picking villas to suit you and partnering them with your desired golfing itinerary. Firstly, we recommend picking at least three golf courses over at least four days – Queenstown Golf Club, Arrowtown, The Hills, Jack’s Point, or Milbrook. From there we can pick a gorgeous villa to fit your exact requirements, whether you’re on a couple’s trip, family reunion or a long weekend away with friends.

To help make your villa your home away from home, we can book an in-house chef to create fresh and delicious breakfasts and dinners, recommend restaurant and cafés, arrange in-house spa treatments and massage, organise nannies for the little ones and so much more.

We know Queenstown inside and out, and believe it or not, there are actually other things on offer besides golf! Why not have a rest day and book a scenic helicopter trip to the rugged and wild West Coast, design your own winery tour, or spend a day wandering around downtown Queenstown beside Lake Wakatipu. Alternatively, if it really does have to be GOLF, then why not try heli-golf!?

ISPS Handa Open | 9-12 March 2017 – the big event!

The NZ Open is played over four days on two of New Zealand’s finest courses – The Hills and Milbrook Resort. Milbrook is a five star golf and lifestyle resort and is one of the most scenic courses in the world, while The Hills is a world class championship golf course tucked in beside the historic goldmining town of Arrowtown. The professional golfers will compete for the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open title while a pairing of one professional and one amateur will play a best-ball format for the New Zealand Pro-Am Championship. 

Spectating at this fantastic event would be the perfect addition to your own golfing holiday. We recommend booking tee times at Jack’s Point golf course on Friday and Saturday, and then catching the action at the NZ Open on Sunday. Or you may wish to be right in on the action and volunteer! There are multiple roles to choose from including course marshals, caddy jackets, shuttle drivers and much more, and when you volunteer for four days you will receive a fabulous volunteer pack including a round at either The Hills or Milbrook.

Get in touch with MajorDomo to discuss tickets, tee times, or to enquire about our gorgeous villas that are nearby to all the NZ Open action.

Mt Michael Central Otago Autumn Golf Classic | 3-7 April 2017 – all that is central Otago

5 days, 5 towns, 5 clubs! This amateur tournament is the best way to experience all that is Central Otago – Queenstown Golf Club, Arrowtown Golf Club, Cromwell Golf Club, Wanaka Golf Club and Alexandra Golf Club! With less than an hour’s drive between each golf course each day, it’ll be a leisurely transition and you will be amazed at the diversity that each course has to offer.

Queenstown 4BBB Mixed Tournament | 18-20 April 2017 – family fun!

This an all ages, all handicaps, pairs tournament. It’s a family-friendly two-day event played at the scenic Jack’s Point golf course nestled under the dramatic Remarkables mountain range and the five-star Milbrook Resort. There are plenty of prizes and trophies to be won across 18 and 36 holes, as well fun prizes and awards for the best-dressed pair!

You may wish to package your entry with accommodation at the luxurious Milbrook Resort, or select one of our boutique villas nearby as your base for 3 or 4 nights. We’re just a phone call or email away to help with both alternatives.

If you can spare the whole week, we have two fabulous itinerary options for you! If you’d like to stay in Central Otago, let us book you one of our gorgeous villas in the quaint historic goldmining town of Arrowtown so you can be part of the buzz during the AKARUA Arrowtown Festival (20-25 April). Or use the 4BBB Mixed Tournament as a warm up before you fly to Auckland for the 2017 World Masters Games (21-30 April). We also have some incredible accommodation options to partner with the Masters.

Whichever option grabs your attention, when you book with MajorDomo you will be partnered with a complimentary MajorDomo concierge. Your concierge can then assist with booking any activities to compliment your golfing getaway - perhaps transfers between golf courses, a scenic helicopter trip to Milford Sound, a tailor-made winery tour, or a masseuse waiting at your villa for your arrival after a day on the greens.

We’re here to make your golfing getaway seamless to plan and a fun, memorable experience.
