Our Tekapo 10:

#1 - Golf Tekapo with unforgettable views.

the cairns alpine resort golf course lake tekapo

The Cairns Alpine Resort Golf Course is a fun-yet-strategic links-designed 9-hole golf course, with two tee blocks per green allowing you to play a full 18-hole round. Golf Tekapo with unforgettable views of the Southern Alps and Lake Tekapo from every part of the course.

The Simpson family designed the course to work with the natural shape and features of the landscape. This is golf at its purest, reminiscent of golf in Scotland where the game has its origins. The greens were established where there is some shelter and good grass was already growing. From there, they worked backwards to find the teeing area. No soil has been moved, except to level the tees. Learn more about the creation of The Cairns golf course.

The course is just steps away from our accommodation at The Cairns Alpine Resort and perfect for a few hours' active relaxation during your Tekapo holiday.

We offer complimentary golf with all accommodation bookings, and it's also possible for us to arrange sessions with a golf pro (based on availability).

For those not staying at The Cairns accommodation, pay green fees at the honesty box on course, and for golf cart and gear rental, visit us at the The Cairns Alpine Resort Reception at 48 D'Archiac Drive.

Learn more about our golf course from cricket legend Stephen Fleming, PGA Tour winner Phil Tataurangi and Mark Leishman, who visited on a boys winter golfing road trip:
