“Christchurch is the ideal destination for Golf Matters 2022, with our superb conferencing facilities in a vibrant central city, and within easy distance of some of the South Island’s best golf courses. Delegates will be encouraged to stay and play before and after the event,”
Golf Matters 2022, New Zealand Golf Conference and Expo, is an initiative of the New Zealand Golf Industry Council (NZGIC) whose members include Golf New Zealand, the New Zealand PGA, Golf Managers Association and the New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association.
Set to take place from 8 to 10 August 2022 at Te Pae Christchurch, the programme is being developed with thought-provoking presentations and forums with golf leaders and innovators worldwide.
Sam Sullivan, chairman of NZGIC, said the conference will bring together the entire golf industry giving delegates the opportunity to network with their New Zealand and international golfing peers.

“We are expecting a large delegation from around the country to attend Golf Matters 2022. Those who have any stake, interest or role in golf in New Zealand will be treated to meeting at Te Pae – one of the country’s most modern and advanced facilities,”
Presentations will provide critical insights and lively debate on issues facing the golf industry now and into the future.
“Golf in New Zealand has seen a huge boost in the past two years, despite a global pandemic,” he said.
The Canterbury and Christchurch region boasts four experience courses and one marquee course, as well as dozens of city and country courses suitable to all players. Clearwater Golf Club, host of several New Zealand Women's Open Championships, is one of New Zealand's best examples of target golf, providing both scenery and challenge.
The New Zealand Golf Industry Council (NZGIC) was founded in 2017 and established to encourage coordination and collaboration between organisations in the New Zealand Golf Industry to achieve the goal of growing the sport of golf.
Membership of the NZGIC is open to all organisations and interested individuals within the Golf Industry. For more information go to: www.nzgic.co.nz
