Men­tion the 19th hole on a golf course and it’s like the light at the end of the tun­nel!

In the case of ‘The Hill’s’ it’s more than that – it’s an on­site en­ter­tain­ment area with a myr­iad of op­tions for golfers and non-golfers alike to en­hance what will in­evitably be a great day out. Wine to sam­ple, taste treats to en­joy, a lit­tle bit of pam­per­ing to par­take in, mer­chan­dise to pur­chase, and fun ac­tiv­i­ties for all………..there is so much to see and en­joy at the 19th hole this year. Plan­ning for this year’s 19th hole has meant sev­eral changes from last year, in­clud­ing a new lo­ca­tion, a free con­cert for tour­na­ment at­ten­dees, sev­eral of Cen­tral Otago’s top wine pro­duc­ers on site, two on­course bars and a ‘golf with a dif­fer­ence ex­pe­ri­ence’. The 19th will be an en­ter­tain­ment at­trac­tion in its own right. Be whisked up to ‘Over The Top’ he­li­copters ‘Ex­treme Golf Tee’, try your hand at SNAG golf, taste some of the wines from Waitiri Creek, Am­is­field, North­burn, Akarua, Valli, Wild Earth and Gibb­ston Val­ley wines, who will be on site for all four days of the event, or sam­ple foody treats to com­ple­ment th­ese wines in­clud­ing Waitiri Creek pies, Wild Earth Gourmet BBQ, Devil Burger or Francesca Pizza. Two on course bars, one lo­cated at the 19th and the sec­ond one at the 15th are be­ing spon­sored by Moa Beer, giv­ing the com­pany their sec­ond high pro­file spon­sor­ing op­por­tu­nity fol­low­ing their sup­port of the New Zealand team at the Olympic Games last year. How good does that sound? Golf com­bined with su­perb en­ter­tain­ment, food, beer and wine to make the per­fect day out for one and all. Auck­land based mu­si­cian Jamie McDell has the hon­our of be­ing the head­line act for the Satur­day night con­cert – a new as­pect in­tro­duced for the 2013 tour­na­ment and aimed at up­ping the level of en­ter­tain­ment be­ing pro­vided. This open-air con­cert sched­uled for Satur­day night once play has fin­ished for the day also in­cludes lo­cal band ‘The Lynch Mob’. Very much favourites of the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity, the Lynch Mob will take to the stage af­ter Jamie McDell and carry the en­ter­tain­ment into the night from the nat­u­ral am­phithe­atre of the site.
