Israel Dagg, who made 66 appearances for the New Zealand rugby team over seven years from 2010 to 2017, is holding his own mini open.
Organised by All Blacks Tours, a spokeswoman said all Covid-19 precautions were to be taken, with large coaches, QR codes and the 16 guests to be split into groups at meal times.
Former Highlander and Crusaders back Dagg will answer fans’ questions over a meal at Botswana Butchery tonight, before inviting them to face him in a friendly competition at Millbrook Resort on Sunday.
The golfers, who ranged from beginner to passionate, were to either warm up at Arrowtown Golf Course today, go wine tasting at Gibbston Valley or take a trip out to Glenorchy.
Dagg has been enjoying a holiday in Queenstown for a few days with wife, Daisy Aitken.
All Blacks Tours said it was a great opportunity to promote golf in Queenstown to the general public.
The eventbrite page said 40 places had been available for the weekend getaway, which included a three-night stay at the Novotel Hotel.
