"I'm excited about combining my passion for golf, world-class hospitality, and the raw and natural beauty of New Zealand in this new role," says Louis.
Situated in the Lake Taupō region of central New Zealand, The Kinloch Club is the only Jack Nicklaus signature designed course in this country. It is an 18 hole Championship par 72 golf course, offering luxury lodge style accommodation and restaurant facilities.

"Now ranked by Golf Digest Magazine in the Top 100 golf courses in the world outside the US, The Kinloch Club has become a must visit golf experience for travelling golfers and local New Zealand golfers alike," says Louis.

Treetops Lodge in Rotorua offers the ultimate in world-class luxury accommodation in the heart of a unique forest and thermal wonderland. In 2012, Treetops was recognised as New Zealand’s leading luxury lodge in the World Travel Awards, and offers both outdoor recreation and spa facilities, as well as reclusive and exclusive accommodation options.

"Treetops is unique in both location and offering, and is a great complement to The Kinloch Club," says Louis.

"I'm looking forward to bringing my years of lodge experience to these properties," says Louis, "and by sharing my enthusiasm, I will ensure that every guest has an outstanding experience. I hope that under my management, both will continue to be recognised as New Zealand’s best."
