The Pines Pairs is Northland’s premier pairs matchplay tournament and caters for golfers of all handicaps. This year is the 30th anniversary of the tournament.

Set over two days, you can test your game against the best the North Island has to offer. The prize pool for each division is equal. Our total prize pool last year was $10,800

Entry criteria states that all players with a current NZGA handicap (at time of entry) are eligible to enter the Pines Pairs. Overseas visitors with a NZGA handicap, 9 hole members & summer members are welcome to enter. Entry  into a particular division (max 16 pairs per division) is on a first come first served basis.

Overseas handicaps are accepted with official supporting documentation.

How it Works

The format is 4 ball better ball matchplay across all divisions. If you lose your first match you enter the flights competition in that division. You will play four rounds over two days

The 9 hole matchplay division will play 4 x 9 hole matches over two days.


18 Hole Matchplay Divisions

These are  handicapped  4 ball better ball matchplay divisions. The max handicap for each division will be set at the time of the draw.

In the match, if Dave is off 8, Brian 9, Bill 11 and Jim 13, Brian will get 1 shot, Bill 3 shots and Jim 5 shots to be used on the appropriate stroke holes.

Shots are always taken off the lowest course handicapper in that match.
