Preview - 2018 Lamb & Hayward Canterbury Strokeplay

19 January 2018

LH Web The field is now confirmed for the 2018 Lamb & Hayward Canterbury Strokeplay to be held at Waitikiri Golf Club this weekend. It should be an interesting tournament with many new faces in the field from other South Island Districts. Most are attracted by the House of Travel Tour prizes on offer across the Canterbury, Otago and Southland Strokeplays. The Men's Open field is lead by defending champ Southland Rep Scott Hellier, and a host of other provincial reps. It is unfortunate that Canterbury's Tom Parker could not play as he is currently competing at the Australian Amateur Championship near Perth....

Hellier back to defend Canterbury Strokeplay Title

16 January 2018

scott hellier2 Southland's Scott Hellier will be back to defend the Lamb & Hayward Canterbury Strokeplay title at Waitkiri Golf Club this weekend, but will face some very stiff opposition from one of the best fields assembled in recent years. Hellier is most recently remembered for his unbelievable course record 60 in qualifying at the 2017 New Zealand Amateur at Russley Golf Club last November and will no doubt bring that form to the strokeplay. However the introduction of the House of Travel Tour that sees $3250 worth of prizes for competing in the Canterbury, Otago and Southland Strokeplays, has attracted many top...

The Press media coverage in decline

13 December 2017

Over the last couple of years it has become increasingly difficult to gain local coverage of golf in The Press newspaper.  This is despite Canterbury Golf staff going out of their way to communicate with sports reporting staff, and providing full information and images for events and tournaments.  Most recently we were particularly disappointed with coverage of our Toro Interprovincial teams despite our efforts to gain in-depth coverage for both our men's and women's teams.  We have been told that Fairfax Media (owners of The Press) have restructured their staff several times and changed their policy about coverage of local sport.  This has been...
