The Hills was designed by Darby Partners and opened in 2007 to host the New Zealand 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.
This championship layout provides a serious challenge for accomplished players while thoughtful and considerate design means that the golf course is equally enjoyable for golfers of all abilities. The beauty of the courses lakes, waterways and wetland areas are complimented by a stunning array of sculptures made by local and international artists.
The scenery is typical Central Otago surrounded by mountain ranges on both sides giving the background to an amazing golf course highlighted by the signature 17th hole, that requires navigation through a narrow canyon. Enjoy the unique hosting package that only The Hills provide.
The Lodge at The Hills located on site offers exclusive luxury accommodation for up to 12 guests.
The Hills is currently co-host of the New Zealand Open
