Se­crecy sur­rounds sculp­ture

The Cut - - NZ OPEN 2016 -

A star at­trac­tion at the 2016 NZ Open may well be a new sculp­ture. The brain­child of Craig Palmer, di­rec­tor of golf at The Hills, this 800kg sculp­ture will be a work­ing piece.

While Palmer is coy about what the sculp­ture is he would re­veal that “it was one of those ideas that grew and I sug­gested it to Michael and Emma (Hill)”.

Turns out fa­ther and daugh­ter liked the idea so it be­came a re­al­ity.

“The con­cept was to have a func­tion­ing sculp­ture. We are al­ways look­ing to do some­thing dif­fer­ent here at The Hills and I can prom­ise you that this is dif­fer­ent,” Palmer said.

It is cer­tain to be a head turner when it takes pride of place on the hill be­hind the 11th green; it is un­der­stood it will be vis­i­ble from Ar­row­town.
