Hotel steers guests to Championship Courses before and after New Zealand OpenWhile PGA Tour organizers gear up for the New Zealand Open from February 27 to March 2, 2014, Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa is sharpening its appeal to the fan base with a limited-time golf and spa package.
In the weeks leading up to and following the tournament, the resort, with 220 rooms and suites on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, will offer a special deal for a mid-week escape. Designed for couples, the package includes:
● Champagne on arrival
● Overnight accommodation in a Lakeview Room with buffet breakfast
●One round of golf at Jack's Point Golf Course
●eforea spa’s signature 90-minute Full Body Repair treatment
● 15 percent off additional spa treatments
● Complimentary late check-out based on availability
Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa is within a 15-minute drive to the two venues co-hosting the tournament. The Hills Golf Course is spread over 500 acres and marked with colossal sculptures -including 111 wolves from Chinese artist Liu Ruowang and Wellington-based Max Patte’s towering cast iron horses. Even closer is Millbrook Resort, with three distinct 18- hole combinations.
In addition, Hilton is the nearest accommodation to Jack’s Point, another 18-hole course featuring tussock grasslands and boasting stunning views of emerald-hued Lake Wakatipu and the aptly named Remarkables mountain range. The resort is also conveniently located near Queenstown Golf Club by Lake Wakatipu.
“Queenstown has long been known as an adventure capital, but there’s a lot more here than just bungee jumping and jet boating,” said Andrew Nisbet, general manager of Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa. “The New Zealand Open gives us the chance to highlight the world-class courses that Queenstown offers, in some of the world’s most scenic surroundings.”
