An exclusive, invitation-only event, the BMW Golf Cup International attracts golfers from around the globe and provides a mix of hot competition and social interaction.

An expected 1,400 participants will be involved in the 13 Qualifying Tournaments around New Zealand. Winners of the local Qualifying Tournaments advance to a National Final, and national champions in each category will advance to the BMW Golf Cup World Final to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The contest is split into three divisions: Men A (for handicaps up to 12), Men B (for handicaps 13-28) and Ladies (for handicaps up to 28).
