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.
