Make Time Play 9

Nine golfers from around the country get their shot at glory during the New Zealand Open thanks to Golf New Zealand and Make Time Play 9

Golf New Zealand’s nine-hole golf initiative, Make Time Play 9, runs throughout summer, and encourages golfers of all ages and skill levels across the country to participate in a shorter format of the game.

Golfers go into the prize draw by simply submitting their nine-hole scorecard. Each month throughout summer players are entered into a random draw and if drawn as one of the lucky nine, players win return airfares and accommodation to Queenstown to compete in the Make Time Play 9 Final Event at the New Zealand Open.

With the two best from the national final at Millbrook resort going on to represent New Zealand at The R&A 9-Hole Challenge on the eve of the 152nd
