OVERVIEW

One of the most popular foursomes events for senior women, The 2021 Golf New Zealand Women’s Senior Foursomes will be hosted by Geraldine, South Canterbury.  Situated at the foot of the Southern Alps, Geraldine is the gateway to the lakes of the Central Mackenzie Basin and the beginning of the Starlight Highway to Tekapo’s world renowned UNESCO Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve.

Dates: Monday 22 to Thursday 25 November 2021 

The town of Geraldine is the home of Barker’s of Geraldine, who will be our host for the welcome function in their new purpose built tasting shop.  Barker’s is still on a corner of the original family farm, 8km from the South Canterbury town of Geraldine. The farm sits in the lea of the Four Peaks mountain range, beside the Te Moana River and surrounded by rolling pastures.  The farm is now a thriving business, making world-class jams, chutneys, syrups, and condiments. Barker’s supports the local community, employing around 200 local people, and supports local growers whenever possible.

The New Zealand Women’s Senior Handicap Foursomes is managed under contract for Golf New Zealand,  by Denise Langdon of PaR nz Golfing Holidays. 

The format includes three days of handicap foursomes match play after 18 holes qualifying net. After qualifying, competitors are put into flights (of 16 pairs per division) which are seeded based on their net score. If inclement weather or for any other reason the event is disrupted the Championship committee may alter the format and the number of rounds played. 

The first 128 (64 pairs) paid entries will be accepted.  If required an additional division accepting a further 16 pairs / 32 players may be extended.
