Tim Kershaw

Managing Director

Tim Kershaw | Remarkable Golft Tours

A strong passion for sports, travel, the outdoors and Central Otago led Tim to Millbrook Resort in 2003 to join the golf proshop team. Following several seasons in the ski industry through 2005, Tim’s attention was drawn to Jacks Point in 2006 where he helped construct the championship course.

With growth of golf tourism in the area following the completion of The Hills and Jacks Point in 2007/08, Remarkable Golf Tours was established to provide a range of golf services to travellers visiting Queenstown.

Rayana Sauter

Tour host/operations

Rayana brings a great personality to the team with her bubbly attitude, sense of humour and dedication, ensuring a memorable experience for guests. Her enthusiasm is unwavering and her knowledge of Queenstown and the surrounds is excellent. A wine tour day with Ray is always a great day out!

Ray often drives tour clients around as well as co-ordinating sightseeing tours, activities and recommending all the great local restaurants.

Golfing, fishing, boating, hiking, travel, people. John owned one of Queenstown’s premier restaurants for 18 years and brings a wealth of local knowledge to our team.

Interested in just about everything, his warm personality and relaxed nature ensure that guests are always made to feel at home. John is a solid fifteen handicapper who is often found playing alongside our tour guests and makes a great tour host if a group is looking for a local to make up a four-ball!
