Clearwater GC, Christchurch

PaR nz Golfing Holidays on behalf of Golf New Zealand, are delighted to announce that the championship course of Clearwater will host the 2022 New Zealand Men’s and Women’s Mid-Amateur.

Tournament dates: Friday 14 January - Sunday 16 January 2022 

This is a premium course of some note.  Over recent years The Clearwater Golf Club hosted the ISPS Handa NZ Women’s Open from 2013 to 2016, and was a host venue for both the New Zealand Open and New Zealand PGA Championship.  Walk in the footsteps of Clearwater graduates such as Jason Dufner, Bubba Watson, Jason Day. Jimmy Walker and most recently Lydia Ko, who in February 2015 posted a course and career record low score of 61 whilst ranked as the World No. 1 female player.  Sir Bob Charles, a Clearwater resident, was a co-designer with John Darby. 

The Clearwater Course is a par-72 championship course that players aged 30+, will be able to battle it out over 3 rounds, played between the 14 – 16 January 2022, a 54 hole stroke play championship.


Both Trophies, the Neil Woodbury Mid-Amateur Cup and the New Zealand Women’s Masters Shield, donated by the Women’s Trust Fund, will be awarded to the overall lowest gross winner, man and woman, over 54 holes. Additional Gross, Net and Stableford prizes by division and age will be awarded, the final split advised when entries close and the field is full.   In the event of a tie for the overall championship, those players tied will play off in a sudden death format as selected by the Championship Committee. This shall continue until a winner is determined. If for any reason this is not possible, joint winners will be declared.  All other prizes and places shall be decided by count back, of the last 18 holes, 9, 6, 3, and then 1. If still tied, the winner shall be decided by lot. If inclement weather affects any round the Championship Committee may alter the format and the numbers of rounds played. All prizes will be distributed in accordance with the Rules of Amateur Status. The field will be limited to the first 128 paid entries received.    

The Tournament Director reserves the right to make amendments according to the final split of entries, by age, handicap and gender, with final divisions advised when entries are closed. Additional entries may be considered outside the listed handicap ranges at the discretion of the Tournament Director.
