This popular women’s tournament is to be held in 2019 at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club. This links course has hosted a record 12 New Zealand Opens including the infamous event in 2002 when Tiger Woods competed. Regarded by many as one of the greatest links courses in the southern hemisphere this course is located just 45 minutes from the capital.
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 2019 tournament will be the 83rd New Zealand Women’s Autumn Foursomes.
For the third 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.
