ISPS Handa NZ Open - 28 February to 3 March 2019
The biggest event on the New Zealand golfing calendar, the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open is an event for golf aficionados and casual spectators alike. It is a great chance to get along and see the courses at Millbrook Resort and The Hills, admire the sculptures and the homes, and take in the beautiful Central Otago surrounds.
What makes this tournament special is it's unique Pro-Am format. The professional players will compete for the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open, whilst simultaneously pairing with an amateur to play a best-ball tournament for the New Zealand Pro-Am Championship.
The ISPS Handa 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 Pro-Am will feature a field of 144 amateurs playing alongside the professionals.
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.
