Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen hosts China's first Rugby-Golf Game


[Shenzhen, China November 15, 2017] To celebrate New Zealand Week, Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen staged China’s first rugby-golf game on November 11, followed by a series of cultural performances and lifestyle activities.



Rugby-golf, a hybrid game first introduced in New Zealand in 1989, is set on a golf course with a designated hole and net and mixes golf and rugby skills. The inaugural game in China took place on the newly-converted course at Mission Hills Shenzhen, the world’s largest golf club.



The game was played by Rotorua Boys and Girls High School students and representatives of Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen led by General Manager Glenn Peat. The hard-fought competition required the participants to play nine holes of golf, punt rugby balls down the fairways and throw them into the net to make par.

本次比赛对战双方为新西兰Rotorua Boys and Girls High School学生,以及总经理Glenn Peat领衔的深圳硬石酒店代表。艰苦激烈的比赛要求选手将高尔夫球和橄榄球技巧融为一体。


The action-packed game was followed by a traditional Maori performance of Kapa Haka at Mission Hills Centreville, located across from Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen, that captured the attention of hundreds of shoppers and onlookers. This powerful and highly visual combination of song, dance and chanting was performed by the national champions from the North Island of New Zealand, Raukura Kapa Haka group.

酣畅淋漓的赛事过后,来自新西兰北部的全国舞蹈冠军Raukura Kapa Haka group在酒店对面的观澜湖新城带来了充满活力的毛利战舞表演,吸引了众多购物者和观众的目光。这种结合舞蹈、 音乐及咏唱的精彩表演让在场观众深刻地感受了新西兰本土文化。


“While music is always at the core of Hard Rock Shenzhen, we are committed to enriching guest experiences in a variety of forms,” says general manager Glenn Peat. “With our strategic location at Mission Hills Shenzhen, families and individual guests have easy access to some of the largest world-class sports, leisure and recreation facilities in South China. We are encouraged by the response to the first rugby-golf game, and will explore the possibility of offering this to our guests in the future.”

总经理Glenn Peats表示:“音乐始终是深圳硬石酒店的核心,但同时我们也一直在努力丰富客户的入住体验。酒店地处深圳观澜湖度假区内,位置绝佳,家庭和个人宾客都可轻松体验这个华南地区最大的世界级体育、休闲和娱乐设施。首届橄榄球高尔夫赛事的反响十分热烈,我们将进一步探讨提供相关服务的可能性。”


The event culminated with a post-match Hangi lunch, a traditional New Zealand Maori method of slow cooking food heated by rocks creating pit oven on the hotel’s rooftop chill out lounge M.C.FRIDA..


To mark the inaugural occasion, Hard Rock Cafe Shenzhen launched a special menu of Venison Mini Burgers served with French Fries and a glass of Rooty Moot, a New Zealand pink ginger soda. Priced at RMB 168 (subject to 15% service charge), the promotion continues until November 18, 2017.
