Jack’s Point Golf
Jack’s Point is a 1,200 hectare (3,000) acre settlement in one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. It combines a sustainable design approach positioned with contemporary architecture and is just 15 minutes drive from Queenstown.
With a backdrop of 2300 vertical metres of the razorback Remarkables mountain range and an armchair view of an outstanding lake and mountain panorama, Jack’s Point Golf Course is not only one of the most spectacular in the world, but as an 18 hole par 72 championship course it offers golfers of any calibre a challenging and unforgettable experience.
The course works with nature, not against it. Designed with minimal excavation, the course measures 6388 metres (6906 yards) from the championship tees and is built on the most spectacular of Jack’s Point terrain, weaving through tussock grasslands, dramatic rock outcrops, steep bluffs and swathes of native bush to the edge of Lake Wakatipu.
The Clubhouse, situated on the edge of Lake Tewa, is the centre of the Jack’s Point community. The essential amenities of the golf shop, restaurant, bar and deli are all contained within this simple yet elegant building. The Jack’s Point Clubhouse draws on local, high country architectural references – from farm buildings simple in design and function.
The historic trusses (over 100 years old), sourced from Southland sale yards, have directly influenced the form and proportion of the building. These trusses are an integral design feature, evident both inside and outside the building. The rawness of the materials used in constructing the Clubhouse reflects the rugged environment in which it sits.
