Where the sea meets the tee
We are proud to introduce our very own helipad !!
Here is the Salt Air Helicopter landing with a our first group of happy customers - Yes golfers can now fly in by helicopter and land almost on the first Tee !!
Call us to arrange - You won’t regret it !!
Thanks to Gary Forrest for arranging and installing the windsock on the roof of the Pro Shop to help pilots judge the wind speed before landing. It’s all very exciting.
So tell your friends that they can now fly in to play golf at your club!
We are fortunate at Waitangi to have so many visitors who want to play our course. It would be a great sign of friendship if members could keep an eye out for strangers – ask them if they would like to join your group if they are alone.
If they are a smaller group than yours, ask if they would like to go through – some are on a tight schedule and are fitting a game in here as an extra.
Would you like one of these on your vehicle ?
It’s a great way to promote our club!!!
Just $20.00 a set.
Waitangi Golf Club is carrying on their She Loves Golf campaign by holding coaching clinics for women who have never played golf before.
