This week is round 15 in the Twilight series.

We look forward to another good turnout this week.

MEN’S SUNDAY GOLF – SUNDAY 26 FEBRUARY

Ian Garvey leads from the first round with a great 41 points, but there are still others who can make a move.

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.
Good Golfing to the Weekend Ladies pennant team who play their first round of the competition this Sunday at Northland GC, and to the three teams of women playing in the Sherwood Park Teams tournament tomorrow.
Congratulations to Dianne Hawke who won the 18-Hole Summer Tray competition and to Cherry Lawrie won the 9-Hole Summer Plate competition.
Don’t forget to put your entry in for our 18-Hole Open on Thursday 2 March 2017. The entry sheet is in the Ladies locker room on the notice board.
A reminder that subscriptions are now due. To take advantage of the discount, please pay by 28 February.
The bar is now open until 6pm and meals are available from noon until 5pm, so we would like to encourage members to use the bar after golf.
If you do not have time for golf, you can always drop in for a beer on the way home from work, Mike looks forward to your visit.
