17 Mar 2014 - NZ Open: Highs and Lows of a week in Queenstown
The New Zealand Open of 2014 will be remembered for breaking new ground. It was the first time in the tournament’s history, which dates back to 1907, that it was staged over two courses and had a pro-am format running concurrently to the championship. It was a considerable success. Peter Thornton, the Media Manager of the NZ Open looks back on the highs and lows of what was a memorable week in Queenstown.

The sculptures scattered around The Hills makes the golf course unique and a special place for both players and spectators alike. There are 13 sculptures throughout the course, all which have been selected by Sir Michael Hill from New Zealand and abroad. Better known as the Sculpture Park, Sir Michael wants everyone to see, touch and provoke creativity. Juxtaposed amongst the mountains, tussock and the course itself, each exhibition has become an icon in its own right. The following is a little information about all of them.
