Millbrook Resort

Thursday, October 26, 2000
Millbrook Resort is a haven for golfing enthusiasts or for those who want to relax in the spectacular surroundings and enjoy the rolling hills and views of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

Arrowtown is a historic gold mining settlement in the foothills of the Wakatipu Basin. Millbrook Resort sits on land which, 120 years ago, was a wheat farm, providing flour for miners.

Millbrook Resort & Country Club is a haven for golfers or non-golfers who just want to relax in the spectacular surroundings of Queenstown and enjoy the gently rolling hills and views of the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

The 18-hole par 72 championship golf course, designed by legendary New Zealand golfer Sir Bob Charles, has tested the skills of Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton and John Travolta. The resort itself attracted thousands of opera lovers to enjoy a concert by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, her voice enhanced by the natural amphitheatre formed by the surrounding mountains.

If you need to brush up on your game before teeing off, there are driving ranges, putting greens and a resident pro to give tuition and you can make use of an electric golf cart. Standard and executive clubs are available, as are trundlers and shoes. You can also play tennis or petanque or relax in the resort's outdoor hot pools and spa, lap pool, gymnasium — or go exploring on a mountain bike.

Millbrook has accommodation ranging from luxurious one-or-two-bedroom villas with ensuite bathrooms, living and dining areas with fully-equipped kitchen and laundry to two-and-three-bedroom cottages. All have underfloor heating, patio and outdoor areas, video and CD players and television.

When it's time to eat or enjoy a drink there is the Clubhouse restaurant, Millhouse cafe, Sala Sala Japanese restaurant or the Hole-In-One lounge.

Shuttle buses run to Queenstown, where there are plenty of shops, eateries, nightclubs, pubs and winebars.
