No NZ Open this summer?

6:12 am on 12 December 2010

The immediate future of the New Zealand Golf Open could be known this weekend.

The prospects of it being played this summer are remote.

It has been played at the Hills in Arrowtown the last three times, but there were indications that it might be shifted to Christchurch.

New Zealand Golf has been attempting to find sponsors, but it appears time has run out for it to finalised and put together this summer.

The Australasian PGA is meeting and scheduling is likely to be discussed and it appears likely that the New Zealand Open will now be shifted to late next year.
