Australian Golf Digest - Jack's Point Golf Course No. 2
Australian Golf Digest reviewed New Zealand's Top 40 golf courses and has rated Jack's Point Golf course as the No. 2 course in the Country.
The judging panel had this to say "breathtaking tee shots and challenging approaches are the norm here and the stretch of holes along the lake (5-8) provide stunning photo opportunities. Still a favourite with the judges and unlucky not to take top spot this year".
Meanwhile, Links Magazine rated Jack's Point Golf Course 3rd in Links Magazine's NZ Top 10. "A short drive from vibrant Queenstown on the South Island, the public Jack’s Point is a thrill ride of movement both up and down (often dramatically) and side to side. The scenery is to die for, playing between the perfectly named Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu. Sometimes over the top, always unforgettable."
