On Par – Golf Southland


Southland Women’s Masters
SOUTHLAND has named a strong team to contest the New Zealand Women’s Masters tournament.

Robyn Boniface (Queens Park), Robyn Pullar (Invercargill), Olivia Frost (Invercargill) and Helen Baird (Dipton) will line up for Southland when the national event tees off at the Northland Golf Club on April 9.

The team is unchanged from the one named for the tournament last year, however the tournament was postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions and a new date could not be found, leading to the event being cancelled.

The southerners will be looking to make up for that this year, and return to their winning ways of the past dominated this event in recent years, however fell slightly off the pace in 2019.
