Bus service to Hills during tournament

Transport to this year's NZPGA at the Hills golf course, near Arrowtown, will be made easy, with a bus service run by tournament sponsor NZSki between Queenstown and the venue.

When the tournament starts, the first buses will pick up at the Station Building in Queenstown at 9am. They will run every other hour until the last bus at 5pm. They will also pick up at Frankton Bus Stop and there will be hourly departures on Saturday and Sunday.

The four-day PGA Tour of Australasia tournament runs from Thursday, February 28, to Sunday, March 3.

Celebrities this year include Sir Ian Botham, New Zealand open winner Lydia Ko and Olympic rowing champion Mahe Drysdale, playing alongside pros including Hale Irwin, Japan's Toshinori Muto, Brendan Jones and Michael Hendry.

Buses will run until the Saturday night concert finishes, with the last bus returning to Queenstown at 9.30pm.

A trip between Queenstown and The Hills will cost $6.

Extensive car parking is also available at The Hills for either $10 a day, or $10 for a pass for the whole four days of the tournament.
