2017 Hawkes Bay 4-Course Golf & Wine Classic

Four of Hawkes Bay’s best will line in up, in conjunction with PaR nz Golfing Holidays to host the second annual Hawkes Bay 4 Course Golf & Wine Classic from Monday 30th October to Friday 3rd November 2017. With the option to play Cape Kidnappers at a special rate of NZD $225 on either Wednesday 1st or Saturday 4th November 2017.

Hastings, Maraenui, Napier and Hawkes Bay Golf Clubs have teamed up to present a five-day event that includes gross, net and stableford prizes across handicap divisions. 

Hastings is one of New Zealand’s best-known club courses, host of many amateur events over the years and proudly the home of arguable New Zealand’s best amateur players, Stuart Jones. 

In addition to a raft of club and district titles Jones won a staggering seven national amateur championships. He represented New Zealand from 1953 to 1975, playing in seven Eisenhower Trophy events. His most notable achievements came when he won two professional events and the 1967 Canadian Amateur Championship.  Although Jones passed away aged 87 in 2012, his legend continues. 

Hastings Golf Club is an outstanding course, well known for its quality of greens and beautiful grassed fairways. 

Napier Golf Club is presented by one of the countries few female green keepers, Ingrid Van Steenbergen – a past district representative, although other hobbies now keep her away form the course, other than been seen daily on a greens mower! 

Napier also has a proud history of hosting many amateur events and in addition to being part of the 2016 Golf & Wine Classic, will host the 2017 New Zealand Women’s Senior Match Play Championships, next February. One of the country’s oldest courses, its origins date back to 1898 at the current site of Waiohiki, which has the course laid out over three distinct areas of land that crisscross over the adjacent roadways.   Distinctive woodcarvings and ancient Maori gravesites give this course a unique flavour. 

Maraenui Golf Club lies on the coast road between the two cities of Napier and Hastings.   In addition to a quality 18-hole layout, the club also manages an adjacent 9-hole challenger for beginners and social players. Boasting itself as one of the ‘friendliest’ clubs, Maraenui has a tight tree lined challenge that demands accuracy, especially off the tee. Like Hastings and Napier, Maraenui is also an easy walking course with sea breezes often coming into play.  

The last but the not the least, host club is Hawkes Bay Golf club, opened in 1969, which has been known also as Flaxmere.   The youngest of the four selected courses, Hawkes Bay is laid out on a pumice base, with the original design by Commander John Harris.  Harris is well known for his contribution to the world renowned Wairakei Golf Course.

From the efforts of many hours work by volunteers carrying buckets of pumice away, the course now presents wide tree-lined fairways with much wildlife on site including Tui’s, Doves, Wild Duck, Plover and Heron.   Golfers are treated to wonderful views out over Te Mata peak and the Northern Ruahines around many of the holes. 

The Hawkes Bay Golf & Wine Classic will be set in the backdrop of the wonders of Hawkes Bay that is known for its wines, food markets, unique gannet colony, Art Deco architecture and on the doorstep of Tom Doak’s Cape Kidnappers masterpiece. 

Currently rated number 16 in the world by Golf Digest (Jan 2016 update), a special rate will be offered to play Cape Kidnappers. Now in its 12th year of operation, Cape Kidnappers continues to amaze all visitors with cliff-edge landscapes from the driving range to the 18th green.   The courses infinity hole and ‘pirate- planks’ are unique features.
