He’s applied to Queenstown’s council for resource consent to add another three holes to the private golf course on his 41-hectare farm, Barley Station.
Subject to approval, that’d bring it up to 18 holes.
With a plan by course designer and former pro Greg Turner, of Arrowtown, the consent application seeks earthworks to create mounds, greens, fairways and tee-off areas over an additional 8.5ha.
The Dunedin-raised sailing great was an Olympic gold medallist and five-time America’s Cup winner.
He bought the 41ha farm for a reputed $5 million in 2005.
