11/08/2020

The Jennian Homes Charles Tour returns to the South Island with the DVS Pegasus Open confirmed at North Canterbury's Pegasus Golf & Sports Club for October 1st-4th 2020.

The initial 2019 event at the Pegasus Golf and Sports Club last year was a great success and it was fitting that last year the winner’s trophies were presented by Sir Bob Charles the New Zealand golf legend the tour is named after. Sir Bob also owns a local farming property in the nearby Oxford area.

DVS Home Ventilation Directors, Peter Roberts, Sue Roberts and Tony Sandes are all committed to the ongoing success of the event.

Peter Roberts says "DVS are pleased to be able to continue our involvement with New Zealand Golf and the Jennian Homes Charles Tour event at Pegasus. The stock of talented New Zealand golfers continues to impress, and we see this event as a great golf challenge on a testing course, our best wishes go to all competitors."

Director of Golf Management & Marketing Mike Godinet says “Once again, the development of Canterbury’s golfing talent will be boosted and encouraged by the support of DVS Home Ventilation and NZME. Their combined support has been instrumental in making this event happen. The opportunity for local players, most of them junior golfers, to play alongside and compete with a quality field of New Zealand professional golfers and the country's elite amateurs over four days gives a rare and valued opportunity for them to test themselves.”

Dave Mangan, New Zealand Golf General Manager of Championships and Golf Operations was pleased the second edition of the DVS Pegasus Open is going ahead.

“The Jennian Homes Charles Tour is a very important part of the player pathway in New Zealand and gives our elite amateurs and rookie professionals very valuable playing opportunities. Without the support of DVS Homes Ventilation and the Pegasus Golf Club opportunities like this would simply not be possible.”

Dominic Sainsbury the General Manager of the PGA of New Zealand says “the PGA is excited about the second staging of the DVS Jennian Homes Charles Tour event at the Pegasus Golf and Sports Club, our players love coming to the Canterbury region and competing against the upcoming talent from the area.

“Pegasus is great course for tournament golf, the courses rewards quality ball striking and players with a sound short game, tactics will play a key role if you want to be competition for the title come Sunday afternoon. We are anticipating a very strong field of professionals with a number of our big-name players likely to be in New Zealand and available to play.

“Mike Godinet always puts on a great event and we are once again looking forward to working with him, the New Zealand Golf team, and the staff at Pegasus to run an event that develops the golfing talent in New Zealand and profiles the game to the Canterbury and wider New Zealand public.”
James Devlin, Golf Operations Manager says “the Pegasus Golf and Sports Club are delighted to be hosting the Jenian homes Charles tour event for a second year. The tournament was a great success last year and with the golf course in great shape, we look forward to an even better event this year.

“We are excited about hosting the best amateur players in NZ, tournaments like this are vital for the development of these players as well as providing an opportunity to showcase our top-class golf course and facilities. We are very fortunate to have the support of our fantastic sponsors with which this event wouldn’t happen. All the best to all of the competitors.”

Matt Bowness - General Manager NZME Christchurch says “it’s our absolute pleasure for Newstalk ZB and Christchurch’s newest radio station GOLD to get behind the DVS Pegasus Open, it’s not just an outstanding tournament it’s also great opportunity to great some of Christchurch’s finest together and solve some of the world’s problems.”

Stephen Parkyn CEO of Lamb & Hayward commented that “from our perspective it was important to continue the support for a Jennian Homes Charles Tour event in Canterbury. Contributing towards the development of amateur players fits well with our philosophy to support the growth of the game. I look forward to watching the Lamb & Hayward Trophy for best amateur being contested again, within a very competitive field. I am sure the best amateur trophy brings another level of interest to the tournament.”
