Four popular and famous tourism operators in New Zealand – Coronet Peak, Real Journeys, Eichardt’s Hotel and Shotover Jet are joining together to support the country’s foremost golf event, ISPS Handa New Zealand Open. They are partnering as a new entity called the Queenstown Group and sponsoring the golf tournament, scheduled March 9-12, 2017. This will display the wide range of tourism opportunities in Queenstown and forge a link between golf tourism and other experiences on offer in the resort town.
The tickets for the event will go on sale tomorrow and can be bought online at www.ticketek.co.nz/nzopen orwww.nzopen.co.nz and they are of the same price like the 2016 event. All ticket buyers will have the opportunity of winning a wonderful prize package from the Queenstown Group, which includes two tickets on Shotover Jet, ski equipment, day passes and lessons for two at Coronet Peak, a BBQ dinner for two at the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant at Walter Peak, two passes to The Champions Lounge at the Open on the Thursday and Friday and a two-night accommodation package at Eichardt’s including breakfast and cocktails.
Queenstown has been continuously voted as one of the top destinations in the world with something for everyone and tourism officials believe that this golf event will further fortify this reputation. This Queenstown partnership will be first for the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open. Tournament Chairman John Hart said, “It is especially exciting to have four of Queenstown’s most long-standing and successful tourism companies, all of them recognized around the world by the many visitors to this region, supporting next year’s tournament.” He also said, “We’re very proud that these four tourism operators are supportive of our efforts to continue to bring this world-class event to Queenstown and help us showcase what this region has to offer.” “We’re all aware that Tourism New Zealand recognises the growing significance of golf tourism to the country, so I welcome this unique partnership.” Along with new Queenstown Group, major sponsors include OJI Holdings Corporation, Poongsan, Sumitomo Forestry, Danu International Ltd, Rebel Sport and Diners Club International.
