Golf has always been a sport with appeal among the over-35s and the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 will be a fantastic occasion for those golfers who are looking for the Golden Oldies trademark of 'Fun, Friendship and Fraternity' in their golf. It's all about having fun.
The week will feature a Stableford format in handicap sections, with daily winners and recognition of the best week’s scores and performances in a relaxed golfing environment.
Golfers will also be in for special treatment with New Zealand golfing legend Sir Bob Charles serving as Ambassador for the Festival and his innovative format will be applied to games during the Festival. Sir Bob’s format is based on his concern for how long it takes to play a round of golf these days. He is conscious of the needs and preferences of Golden Oldies golfers.
Golden Oldies Golf Festivals are ideal for golfers who want to try their skills on courses around the world that they might not normally experience. Certainly those who come to Christchurch will enjoy courses of the finest quality. The outstanding golf venues are Pegasus Golf and Sports Club, Harewood Golf Club, the Christchurch Golf Club at Shirley and the spectacular Terrace Downs Golf Club located in the shadow of the magnificent Southern Alps.
