Women coming from far and wide to the links tournament

Golf - NZ Amateur Strokeplay Championships, 23 March 2013A record total of 116 women have entered the annual Ladies’ Paraparaumu Beach Golf Open on Saturday, August 2.

This is one of the prestige events in the ladies’ golfing calendar in the wider Wellington region.

Women are coming from as far away as Mt Maunganui and Masterton, with more than 60 visitors registered. Most are from the Wellington, Hutt, Kapiti and Horowhenua.

According to Ladies’ Captain Jenny Mackay the number of registrations has exceeded expectations and the final field is the largest since the introduction of this event in 2009.

The size of the field is probably as a result of the exceptionally good state of the Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club course and a very generous prize table.

FINMAN Services Paraparaumu has sponsored this event, and the quality and value of the prizes they have provided through their very generous sponsorship will exceed the capabilities of most clubs. With GPS hand-helds and golf trundlers on offer, the prizes are particularly attractive.
