New Zealand’s South Island is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on. By now that’s a well-known fact.
But it’s time for the winter season to well and truly move aside and make way for a summer of golf, helicopters, and more golf. Enter Leisure Golf – quite possibly the most Hollywood experience this side of the equator, let alone in New Zealand.
Kicking off for the summer of 2023/2024 are five-day, four-night luxury all-inclusive itineraries that sample the best of the Southern Alps both on and off the fairway.
Leisure Golf caters for private groups between two to eight guests; be it Vinnie Chase & the fellas, or a wholesome week with the significant others in tow.
As your private concierge, the team unlock three rounds of golf for the week – usually Jacks Point, Millbrook, and The Hills – as well as a fly-in, fly-out golf experience via chopper at the top of a mountain.
You read that correctly. Not only do you knock back 18 holes at a trio of the country’s best courses, but you’ll also ascend to 4,500 feet to try your luck at the highest Par 3 in this corner of the world.
Back at the ranch, guests have a private homestead all to themselves, which is hosted by both a Leisure Golf representative, and a personal chef to surprise and delight on the relaxation and culinary fronts respectively. When you’re not taking the heli from the backyard to the first tee, a personal chauffeur is on hand to help you explore the best of Queenstown’s surrounds.
Apart from the key constant – a whirlwind of world-class golf in five days – itineraries are entirely customisable to your tastes and already include the likes of a dining experience at Amisfield, and an Oxbow off-road adventure, just to get your imagination started.
And let’s not forget that Queenstown and its nearby postcodes offer more hair-raising activities than you can poke a stick at – from mountain biking and fly fishing, to clay shooting and jet boating. Just name your requests and Leisure Golf will weave them into the itinerary.
It’s not like an excuse is ever necessary for an indulgence of this scale, but milestone birthday celebrations, pre-wedding retreats and good old-fashioned annual hit-outs with the group chat come to mind. Regardless, Leisure Golf looks to not only be the luxury travel holy grail of Kiwi golf, but possibly New Zealand as a whole.
Booking slots have just opened for the coming summer between November 2023 and April 2024.
