TEE TIME AT 9.00am

With a backdrop of the Remarkables Mountain Range (some 2300 vertical metres) and also astonishing views of Lake Wakatipu, it is clear to see why the designers of Jacks, Darby Partners were so enthralled to have this project land on their table.

 

A relatively gentle start to the course eases you out the lake edge, and the jaw-dropping views start to come into play as you stand on the 5th Tee. From there on in, just admire the natural beauty and stunning bit of dirt that this course has been sculpted from.
