Pacific Resort Hotel Group (PRHG) is excited to tee off 2019 with the announcement of their partnership with golfer Phillis Meti, a local Cook Islander, who is achieving her goals on the competitive world stage.

 

The partnership represents the first major sports sponsorship for PRHG at an international level.

PRHG and Meti mutually recognise the importance of local community support and are dedicated to increasing opportunities for Cook Islanders and celebrating the great accomplishments of athletes from the country.

In 2016 - at 19 years and two months of age - Meti became the youngest female Long Drive world champion and a world-record holder.

“I want nothing but to be a positive example for our young Cook Islands people, in partnership with a positive hotel group that is known for giving back to our local events and people,” said Meti, who is passionate about being an exemplary role model for young women in the Cook Islands and is dedicated to developing both long drive as a sport here.

Meti, who is of Cook Islands Maori descent, hails from the village of Arorangi. Her parents have been instrumental in her sporting development, preparing her to compete at an elite level and seen her rise to golfing royalty as the current and defending world champion.

The hotel group wants to help share Meti’s story and “show fellow Cook Island athletes that with hard work and patience, good things come in abundance and furthermore our people do look after each other when we put ourselves on the map with merit”.

On par with PRHG’s commitment to the community, this positive collaboration sees the value in providing support to sustain future growth and development of Cook Islanders.

Meti’s next event is the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville, Bonville Golf Club on February 21, where she will test herself against some of Australasia’s best golfing talents.
