Day 4: Cape Kidnappers

More golf on the agenda today with a round of 18 on the par 71 golf course. With cliff-edge fairways perched 140 metres above sea level, and a surface that is firm and fast, this spectacular golf course, designed by legendary golf architect Tom Doak, has been hailed as one of golf’s great modern marvels. Built on a ridge-and-valley landscape and with stunning sea views, Cape Kidnappers Golf Course has some of the world’s most unique holes, some play cautiously alongside deep ravines as others intimidate golfers with deep cliff top bunkers and sheer drops off the very edge of the earth.

In addition to boasting one of the world’s top golf courses, this unique property is also a sanctuary for some of New Zealand’s most precious flora and fauna, and a working farm.

Today’s golfing destination is Jack’s Point situated on the edge of Lake Wakatipu and in the shadow of the Remarkables mountain range. The 18-hole par 72 championship course, with five tee positions, weaves through native tussock grasslands to the lake’s edge and is ranked number one in the South Island. Its demanding layout is ruggedly natural and demands a degree of accuracy but will reward all players with its incredible scenery and the unforgettable experience.
