2020 Spring / Summer Newsletter

Hi Golfers

We hope you are enjoying the return to golf and from Friday 29th May onwards, a bigger 100 crowd in New Zealand Clubhouse’s to share those long drive and 50ft drained putt golf stories with.  We are also watching and tracking interstate border changes in Australia and see that our Aussie golfing friends all seem to be enjoying golf in four’s again.  Life is getting back to some normality!

Over the past few months, the PaR nz Golfing Holidays team has been kept busy re-scheduling our golfing calendar for 2020 / 2021. Many of our tournaments were already in the marketplace and some sold out with waitlists.

We thank you for your continued support of our New Zealand based tournaments and provide you with a quick update so you can plan your golf and holidays for the remainder of 2020.

New for PaR nz Golfing Holidays will be a change in our online booking system. We have ‘gone local’ and have formed a partnership with NZ Golf and their DotGolf booking system. Entries for all tournaments will start to open from mid-June onwards.  We will have regular release updates as these come online.

Talk of the Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble is gathering momentum and all going well is predicted to become available from August / September – we look forward to further announcements for both sides of the Tasman.

Please have a look at our 2020 calendar below. This includes some new events, some postponed dates for existing tournaments and some reminders about tournaments yet to be released.  It’s going to be a busy spring and summer – we are looking forward to seeing you all on the fairways of these events.

Some key points for our events in 2020… 

Firstly Fiji, with the uncertainty of border openings for the Pacific Islands, limited flight schedules, and the delayed refurbishment of the Sheraton Fiji due to COVID-19, we will be postponing both Fiji tournaments to a date in 2021. While we would have loved to state a confirmed date at this time, given the uncertainty of the combination of these above factors it is sadly, not prudent to confirm new dates at this time.

We are excited to offer all 2020 Fiji booked-golfers 3 alternatives this year in addition to honouring your booking into 2021 when we can announce the new dates.  After our office move this weekend, we will be in contact with all Fiji golfers by the 3rd June, (yes, we know some flights have been cancelled). Details of the 3 special packages below:

  1. A new Millbrook Resort Women’s Golf Classic in October
  2. A Millbrook Villa Teams Challenge in October
  3. And a NEW Melbourne and Tasmania Teams Tour in December

All of these are of course available to all PaR nz Golfing Holidays golfers who would like to take up one of these challenges.

We have postponed dates for two of our New Zealand based multi-course challenges – the Mount Michael Central Otago Autumn Golf Classic and Copthorne Bay of Islands 4-Course Golf Classic and we will be releasing in June, the Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay 4-Course Golf Classic. 

The Akarua Millbrook Masters 2020 is available now to reserve your place – please contact kim@parnz.co.nz now to book. 

The Copthorne Bay of Islands 4-Course Golf Classic is already released and has some places still available. Kim is working through the waitlist now to confirm final places. Please contact kim@parnz.co.nz

There will be four more tournaments this year that PaR nz Golfing Holidays will host on behalf of New Zealand Golf – details below with entries opening up mid-June through the new PaR nz / DotGolf booking system.

Lastly – thanks again.  There has been much written about the struggles and challenges that the golf travel and tourism industry has faced, and will continue to manage and deal with over coming months, even years – please do continue to support golf travel and tourism – and if the fit with dates and venues works for you -  we truly hope that this is with us, PaR nz Golfing Holidays. 

Continue to be safe and travel and play well, wherever you may golf!  Watch our website for full information on all our upcoming tours and tournaments. Entry portals online will open from mid-June onwards. Please contact us direct for more information or to discuss alternative travel options.

Cheers and best from Kim & Denise, and the PaR nz team
