EVENT HISTORY

The Manawatu Golf Club will host the 2018 Horizon Golf NZPGA Championship, to be played from 22nd - 25th February 2018 at its Hokowhitu course in Palmerston North.  The tournament will continue to be part of the PGA Tour of Australasia and will carry prize money of $125,000, as it did for the 2015 and 2016 NZPGA Championships staged at Auckland’s Remuera Golf Club and 2017 NZPGA held here at the Manawatu Golf Club.

The NZPGA Championship would again take place the week before the ISPS Handa NZ Open in Queenstown.

The Manawatu Golf Club was founded in 1895 at Hokowhitu, which continues to be its current location.  Previous NZPGA winners on the course have been Arthur Ham (1922), Fred Rutter (1930), Andy Shaw (1946) and Kel Nagle (1957).

The 2018 Horizon Golf NZPGA Championship winner will join a long list of famous names on the McDougall Cup, first played for in 1920 when it was won by Joe Kirkwood.  The current holder is Jarryd Felton of Australia.  The leading New Zealand player will receive the Sir Bob Charles Trophy, which was initiated in 2015 and won by Josh Geary.  Ben Campbell is the current holder of the Sir Bob Charles Trophy.

This is going to be a fantastic event for the local community to be part of. Feel free to take a tour of the other pages of this website for all the info you need to know about the tournament.
