The 2019 New Zealand Mens & Womens Mid-Amateur Championship will be played simultaneously at the Omanu Golf Course situated in the coastal haven of Mount Maunganui in the Bay of Plenty region. The Championship is a 54-hole stroke play tournament by age group.
An exciting enhancement to the tournament is the awarding of two places at the 2019 Australian Mid-Amateur for the men's and women's winners (providing the winners are New Zealander’s) or the top placed New Zealand male and female competitors. This will include tournament entry, tournament clothing and a travel grant to assist with flights to Australia.
The Omanu Golf Course will, for the third year running, host the 2019 Championship. It is a superb championship course layout, located close to beaches, cafes and good quality standard accommodation.
For the Mid Am 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 age split advised when entries close and the field is full.
The field will be limited to the first 120 paid entries received. Players must be over 30 years of age, as at 11 January 2019, and have a New Zealand Golf Handicap Index not exceeding 14.0 (men) and 24.0 (women) or an overseas equivalent. The tournament committee reserves the right to take players with slightly higher handicaps.
2019 tournament sponsors include BOSCH Home Appliances and TaylorMade-Adidas Golf.
