Guest post from Brett James, General Manager at Pegasus Golf & Sports Club
We’ve had some exciting news here at the Pegasus Golf Course this month, with Golf Australia Magazine recently naming its top 25 New Zealand golf courses. We came in at 8th place overall and the number one course in Canterbury.
Here’s the review –
It’s not often you get a touring professional offering unsolicited compliments about golf courses but Australian touring pro Lindsey Wright did just that during an interview recently.
“Pegasus is beautifully presented but it’s the kind of course where you have to really think about your playing options, which I really like,” Wright said of the venue for her 2012 Women’s New Zealand Open victory.
I have to agree with her. Pegasus is an impressive newcomer to the NZ golf scene and after two growing seasons it is offering the kind of playing surfaces you might expect at a course where the green fee is twice the price.
I’m very proud of my team, there is a really good buzz around the place at the moment, and rightly so. It goes to show that hard work really does pay off and not only were we rated 8th but we are also excellent value for money at $50 and everyone is welcome at our course.
In other news, we will be holding the inaugural Pegasus Golf Open on 17th June. We’ll have free use of the driving range prior to the tournament starting at 10am. I am really looking forward to kicking off the event for the first time and hopefully this will become an annual fixture on our club’s competition calendar.
