The Hills
The Hills is located 25 minutes drive from Queenstown town centre. The Hills was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host the New Zealand Open. This championship layout provides a serious challenge for accomplished golf players while thoughtful and considerate design means that the golf course is equally enjoyable for golfers of all abilities. Set over 500 acres of land across a glacial valley, The Hills is home to an incredible array of flora including native brown top grasses and wild native mountain tussocks. Sculptures crafted by New Zealand artists compliment the natural beauty of the course’s lakes, waterways and wetland areas. Winter snow and frost conditions provide the ideal climate for the finest grasses suited to the modern day game of golf. The course is the current home of the New Zealand Open.
