This year’s tour­na­ment was

at com­plete ca­pac­ity with the com­mit­tee de­cid­ing to cre­ate an ex­tra group to in­cor­po­rate the 100 play­ers who en­tered. In the 10th year of the tour­na­ment this was the big­gest turn out ever, and with many other tour­na­ments around the coun­try strug­gling for en­tries, it shows just how much sup­port and strength there is in the men's 40+ bracket. This year the first round was played at Omaha, the sec­ond round at He­lensville, and the third and fi­nal round at the Muri­wai Links. Weather was fan­tas­tic on the first two days but it would not be a true tour­na­ment with­out some usual test­ing weather. Bru­tal windy con­di­tions (with some rain) tested the play­ers all through the fi­nal round at Muri­wai. Scores were not good but those that kept their head down and grinded it out were re­warded. The ma­jor win­ner in the Se­niors (50+) was Mark An­der­son (Muri­wai) who de­fended his ti­tle from 2016. Roger Har­ris (Akarana) was the senior nett win­ner. Tayne Der­ri­man (Muri­wai) shot the round of the day at his home track with a 75 (which in re­al­ity was more like a sub 70 due to the con­di­tions), to storm up the 40-49 leader board and win by 1. In the 60+ cat­e­gory the ever con­sis­tent David Head­land was the com­fort­able win­ner.
