New Zealand Golf Open Overview
The New Zealand Open, held from 27 February to 2 March 2014 in Queenstown New Zealand, will become an iconic event on the New Zealand sporting calendar.
Hosted at two spectacular golf courses - The Hills and Millbrook Resort - the tournament incorporates a unique Pro-Am format that brings together a prestigious blend of Professional and Amateur golfers.
The New Zealand Open is a cornerstone event on the PGA Tour of Australasia and has now also entered into a partnership with the Japan Golf Tour Organisation which will result in fifteen leading professional golfers from the Japan tour playing in the tournament.
The New Zealand Government is a key partner of the tournament. The event showcases Queenstown and New Zealand as a world-class golfing destination and also provides a platform for New Zealand business leaders to engage with counterparts from the Asia Pacific region.
We thank our family of major sponsors, amateur participants and major suppliers for their support of the Tournament.
The new tournament format will be played across two courses with a minimum field of 132 professional golfers playing alongside 132 amateur golfers.
Concurrent to the New Zealand Open Championship, a 72 hole strokeplay event, each professional will be paired with an amatuer playing two rounds, one at each course, in a best ball format.
