Welcome to one of New Zealand's longest-running and largest multi-course golf tournaments. This tournament creates a massive number of returning players because of the camaraderie enjoyed and lifelong friendships that evolve.
The tournament programme is set over 5 days playing 5 championship courses - Mount Maunganui, Omanu, Omokoroa, Tauranga and Te Puke. The Bay of Plenty is the perfect summer holiday destination not only for the golf but beaches, local shopping, restaurants, cafes and fun tourist adventures.
Open to men and women golfers from clubs around New Zealand as well as international golfers from Australia and the Pacific. Maximum handicaps of 36.4 apply for both men and women. Minimum age is 18 years.
The field will be limited to the first 500 entries received. Players are drawn into four equal groups, and play a different course over the 5 days. Upon entry let us know who your travelling friends are so you can play on the same courses. All participants enjoy a fantastic week of golf and social activities and the best weather that the Bay of Plenty can offer.
The Bay of Plenty 5 Course Classic was established in 1995 and will celebrate its 26th anniversary in 2021.
