2018 MercedesTrophy Dealer Golf Day


The annual Ingham Prestige MercedesTrophy Dealer Golf Day was held on Friday 9 March 2018.The tournament was hosted at St Andrews Golf Club in Hamilton, regarded as the premier golf course in the Waikato Region.
The field comprised an exclusive group of loyal Mercedes-Benz owners and invited guests, all with a passion for golf. The eligible Mercedes-Benz owners were all vying for the opportunity to represent the dealership at the MercedesTrophy New Zealand National Final, which will be staged at Millbrook Resort in Queenstown, from 27 – 29 April 2018.
Winner on the day with an outstanding score of 42 points was Brad Chibnall from Riverside Golf Club. Brad was acknowledged as the winner on the day but since he had represented the dealership at the National Final in 2017 was ineligible to attend again in 2018.
The two representatives from the Ingham Prestige Dealership for the National Final will be Steve Patterson (Hamilton) who scored 40 pts and Barry Knowles who travelled up from Stratford Golf Club on 38 pts. Both good scores on a tough and long Hamilton track.
