The Fenix Canterbury Men's Team have defended their South Island Interprovincial title played at the Invercargill Golf Club.
The Invercargill Golf Club layout proved yet again to provide a worthy challenge for this major event in the lead up to the NZ Men's Interprovincials. With a number of the team getting their first look at the course they soon learnt that accuracy and course management would be key to winning matches. On day one Canterbury halved against a strong Otago lineup and beat Tasman 7-1. Southland beat Otago so this would prove to be a key match on day two which the Canterbury Men won 6-2 and also beat Tasman 7.5-0.5 to successfully defend the Men's South Island Interprovincial title. Team Manager Murray Brown describes the Otatara course as "still one of the best challenges in the South Island with amazing greens, a true test for all the players ahead of the NZ Men's Toro Interprovincials".
