International Competitions

For some years New Zealand took part in matches with various Australian States for the Kirk-Windeyer Cup. This series was discontinued after 1934. New Zealand gained fourth place in the first world amateur team championship, which was held at St. Andrews, Edinburgh, in 1958. In 1961 New Zealand defeated Australia at Kingston Heath Golf Club, Melbourne, in an international match for the Sloan Morpeth trophy.
