New event at The Hills

The Cut - - LOCAL NEWS -

The in­au­gu­ral Hills In­vi­ta­tional Pro-Am which took place prior to Christ­mas 2015 was a huge suc­cess.

The event, the brain­child of The Hills di­rec­tor of golf Craig Palmer, fea­tured 18 pro­fes­sion­als and 54 of the club’s mem­bers.

Ash­bur­ton golfer Daniel Pearce was the win­ner. As part of his prize he re­ceived a one-year hon­orary mem­ber­ship to The Hills with his fam­ily in ad­di­tion to $4000.

The 2016 event is al­ready con­firmed. With the as­sis­tance of a gen­er­ous club mem­ber, prize money in­creases from $20,000 to $50,000, mak­ing it on a par with the Charles Tour’s four-day events.
