This popular women’s tournament returns to the North Island, to be hosted by Whakatane Golf Club in 2018. This championship course - one of the finest golf courses in the Bay of Plenty with fast running greens and lush forgiving fairways is located 10 minutes from the town centre, adjacent to the airport.
The format of the tournament remains the same with a 64-pair random draw published for round one, with multiple flights and plates following for rounds 2-5. Winners after five rounds go onto their respective finals on Thursday afternoon. The winners receive the NZLGU Foursomes Cup’s and the first round losers compete for the NZLGU Salvers. The 2018 tournament will be the 82nd Women’s Autumn Foursomes.
For the second year running, the entry conditions have been modified to allow players to know up front if they have been accepted into the field thus allowing early travel and accommodation bookings to be made. Thus, the first 32 pairs entered (received with tournament payment) will automatically be included in the field and the remaining 32 pairs, balloted by handicap, if entries exceed the 64 pairs needed for this draw. This is in line with practices for popular tournaments in Australia and is approved by NZ Golf as a sensible change to the conditions.
Come join us in Whakatane.
