The Hills

​The surroundings, conditions, service and amenities are all absolutely first class. This is unashamedly exclusive golf and the course itself is solid and dependable.

Exclusively The Hills

The Hills is New Zealand's most exclusive golf club. The course spreads itself across an old deer farm in the rather large wedge between Millbrook and Arrowtown. The terrain is rolling countryside augmented with some significant rock outcrops and a spectacular canyon. The stunning natural surroundings are augmented by a number of significant sculptures – ranging from the petite to packs of wolves and statuesque horses – and the art alone is worth the stroll.  The surroundings, conditions, service and amenities are all first class.  This is unashamedly exclusive golf and the course itself is solid and dependable.

Elegant and Sophisticated

Owned by Kiwi entrepreneur Sir Michael Hill, The Hills has evolved from the modest beginnings of a short par 3 hole to become a world class championship golf course. The 18-hole layout was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host the NZ Open.

Set over 500 acres of land across a glacial valley, the layout highlights the dramatic elevation changes and rocky schist outcrops that are a feature of the area.
