The countdown is on - 100 Days until the 100th NZ Open
New Zealand golfing legend, Sir Bob Charles, recalls winning his first New Zealand Open as a fresh 18-year-old amateur at Heretaunga in 1954. His first of four New Zealand Open Championship wins, he is just one of the great Kiwi golfers who will be in attendance to watch the 100th year of the New Zealand Open in 100 days’ time, on 28 February 2019, at Millbrook Resort and The Hills in Queenstown.
New Zealand Professionals competing include Ryan Fox, Steve Alker, Tim Wilkinson, Ben Campbell and Mark Brown, as well as former champions Mike Hendry (2017), David Smail (2001) and Michael Long (1996).
Organisers are particularly thrilled to have Ryan Fox return to play in next year’s event. “Ryan is now a top 100 player in the world, and can pick and choose which events he will play. For him, the New Zealand Open has as high a priority as any of golf’s majors and we couldn’t be more grateful for his support,” says Tournament Director Michael Glading.
All season ticket purchases made between November 20th and January 31st automatically qualify for a chance to win a full golf club fitout and receive VIP tickets for all 4 days, along with a supply of tournament merchandise - a prize valued at around $10,000.
