2016 NEW ZEALAND SENIORS CHAMPIONSHIP
Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club
11-13 February
 
This very popular event attracts a large field and record entries are expected next year. Paraparaumu Beach is one of our greatest courses and we will have a large international interest in playing this championship. That may place us in a difficult position of entries exceeding the field capacity so at this stage we would like to advise that we will give priority to international visitors and those that have supported the event in recent years. 
 
Entries will open here at www.golf.co.nz later this year.
