ZPGA golf pro­fes­sional An­drew Whi­ley is seek­ing as­sis­tance from golfers around the coun­try to rank their favourite golf cour­ses. The Re­gional Golf Rank­ings will be based on re­gions sim­i­lar to the Su­per 15 Rugby re­gions and each golfer will be asked to rank their top six golf cour­ses, favourite nine-hole course and their hid­den gem.

Last year Whi­ley re­leased his fourth New Zealand Golf Rank­ings, high­light­ing the best golf cour­ses in the coun­try, the cour­ses ranked by golf pro­fes­sion­als, golf in­dus­try peo­ple and for­mer rep­re­sen­ta­tive golfers. But now it is time for club golfers to have their say.

“All play­ers en­joy de­bat­ing their favourite cour­ses with fel­low golfers on a reg­u­lar ba­sis and now it is their time to share their rank­ings with golfers from their own re­gions and around the coun­try,” says Whi­ley. “More im­por­tantly, it will be great to see if golf cour­ses that don’t nor­mally get recog­nised get listed as spe­cial places to play.”

Golfers will be re­quired to fac­tor in lay­out, de­sign va­ri­ety, mem­o­ra­bil­ity, aes­thet­ics, con­di­tion­ing and am­bi­ence and they need to rank the golf cour­ses from first through to sixth favourite.

Re­gional Golf Rank­ings will run online from Septem­ber 20 to Oc­to­ber 31 and can be ac­cessed through www.gol­frank­ings.co.nz. Make sure you take the time to have your say.
