New Zealand’s pristine golfing landscapes have never been busier nor more in the spotlight with three major golf tournaments scheduled in 2017, one of which will play out on the country’s newest golf course.
The ISPS Handa New Zealand Open teed off in Queenstown today (9 March 2017), marking the first of three major golf events taking place in New Zealand in 2017.
Alongside this event, New Zealand is gearing up to host its first ever LPGA Tour event in September, the MCKAYSON New Zealand Women’s Open, before the prestigious Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship takes place in the capital city in October.
These major golf events help to cement New Zealand’s reputation as a world-class golf destination, providing the host courses with exposure the world-over.
For newly opened Windross Farm in Auckland, the MCKAYSON New Zealand Women’s Open will provide a high profile introduction to the international golfing world as Lydia Ko tees off in her first LPGA Tour on home ground.
While the three international events will attract their share of international golfing fans over a brief few days, the golf courses provide a year-round attraction for visitors to New Zealand.
To showcase New Zealand’s golf offering to the world, Tourism New Zealand has released a series of promotional videos which hone in on each of the event host regions.
Each video captures the extent to which the country’s stunning landscapes shape its golf courses, with mountains, coastlines and valleys back-dropping many of the best. They also focus on the award-winning food and wine and thrilling adventure activities to be found in close proximity to each course and awaiting visitors when they step off the green.
