Welcome to one of New Zealand's longest running and largest multi-course golf tournaments. In 2023 The Bay of Plenty 5 Course Classic will celebrate its 28th anniversary. (Established 1995).

The competition format is stableford over 5 rounds. Under the World Handicap System, handicaps will change daily. Prizes are awarded daily along with overall prizes by multiple handicap divisions at the end of the week.

The field is limited to the first 500 entries received. Players are drawn into four equal groups, and play a different course over the 5 days. Upon entry let us know the names of your travelling friends so you can play on the same courses.
