Strong website traffic growth for 2016 NZ Open

Its was another great week of Golf at The Hills and Millbrook for the 2016 BMW ISPS Handa New Zealand Open.

Announce Design was once again in charge of running the website during the tournament and was out on course taking photos and short videos clips that were then posted on Social Media.

This year saw a new ANZ Celebrity Team challenge introduced with Australia v New Zealand, featuring the likes of Brendan McCullum and Ricky Ponting and presented some very entertaining golf.

In the professional field saw a strong contingent of Japanese players in the field, with Hideto Tanihara just losing to Australian Matthew Griffin on the final hole.

This translated to a very strong Japanese website traffic, up 290% on last year and overtaking Australian traffic.

Website traffic in general showed very strong growth up 58% on the previous year.

We look forward to next years event, with Millbrook Resort become the primary host for the final two rounds.
