To all women golfers – the invitation is out! Lockdown is over. Spring is around the corner and the course beckons.

Come and join us for the 2020 Women’s Emerre & Hathaway Open Tournament at the Awapuni Links – Poverty Bay Golf Club.

This year our women’s Open is on Monday and Tuesday, 21st and 22nd September and like last year precedes the Men’s Open by three days. Everyone has been starved of golf this year and Awapuni Links – Poverty Bay Golf Club is looking forward to offering all keen players a chance to get back in the game with a week of competition and fun on our prestigious course.

Our Manager and staff have worked hard to maintain the standard of our Links course and, despite the challenges this year has brought, it is in superb condition.

The programme this year incorporates three rounds of golf, a 54-hole competition alongside a 27-hole section, morning tea, snacks available during play and a special dinner on Monday night with a lucky prize drawn on the night from those attending. In addition, lunch will be available both days from the upstairs café at players own cost.

  • $65 for 54-hole players
