Palmerston North Boys' High School offers many opportunities for the enthusiastic golfer.
The School Golf Championship is the first event of the year, with a gross, net and stableford championship. This is open to all golfers with an official New Zealand Golf Handicap. From the School Golf Championship, the Super 8 team is selected. This is for the 8 best golfers in the school, keeping in mind that we need to develop golfers for the future. This championship is played over 3 days, rotating amongst the Super 8 Schools. The PNBHS Golf Team have won Super 8 for 2 of the last 3 years.
The next event is Manawatu/Wanganui Intercollegiate Golf Championship. In 2016 we had a record 21 boys entering in the championship. This is the qualification to National Tournament. We have won this event the past 5 years. The New Zealand Secondary School Championship is played during tournament week in September and the four best golfers in the school take part in this. The best placing in this of recent years is seventh in 2012, second in 2013, a fourth placing in 2014 and a sixth placing in 2015.
Any students wanting to be part of the PNBHS Golf Team should first become a member of their local golf club then join all the exciting tournaments PNBHS has on offer. Currently there are opportunities at golf clubs where the boys can ‘learn to play’. This was free in 2016.
