Cambridge Golf Classic back this weekend

Former Classic trophy winner Wenyung Keh drives the ball at the 2016 Cambridge Golf Classic.

This weekend the Cambridge Golf Club will host many of the country’s leading male and female amateur golfers for the 46th renewal of the Classic Builders Cambridge Golf Classic.

Playing over 72 holes from Friday to Sunday, the field this year includes a large number of current New Zealand representatives travelling from all parts of the country to compete in the NZ Order of Merit event.

Heading the men’s field is current NZ Strokeplay Champion Kerry Mountcastle from Masterton and Murawai’s Jake Meenhorst, runner up at last year’s event, and winner of the recent Waikato Winter Stroke Play Championships.

Cambridge’s own Jordan Woodall will be looking for a home course advantage as the leading local representative, having placed fourth at the Strokeplay Champs.

The Women’s Championship is headed by Auckland’s Carmen Lim, a plus-three handicapper, and Ela Grimwood from the North Shore.

Following on from the successful Forsyth Barr Cambridge Masters and Waikato Age Group Champs, the Cambridge golf course is more than ready to host the field of 120 competitors. The club wishes all competitors the best of luck in the tournament and thanks the many families supporting the event.
