CENTRAL BUTCHERY MIXED CLUB DAY – SATURDAY 18 MARCH
This Saturday is the March Central Butchery Mixed Club Day. The usual format of 4BBB Stableford and a great way to meet members of the club. If you do not have a partner, we will pair you up.
Cards in by 9.30am please for a 10am tee off.
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.
SUNDAY MEN’S GOLF

This Sunday 19 March all three of our Pennant teams are playing away so the Men’s Sunday Haggle will be a Stableford.
Cards in by 9.30am please for a 9.45am drawn start.
WAITANGI 18 HOLE OPEN – SATURDAY 25 MARCH
We are holding the Waitangi 18 hole Open next week. It is part of the Lion Tour, but any member can enter.
The format will be Gross, Net and Stableford and the event usually attracts a strong field. If you want to play the time sheet is in the Pro shop with tee times from 7.30 to 11.20am. We would appreciate home players booking early tee times to leave later times for those who need to travel.
MEN’S SHOOTOUT & ECLECTIC
We now have 31 entries in the Eclectic and 32 entries in the Shootout. There is plenty of room for more players and lots of time to qualify, so please register your interest with Mick Jones as soon as possible.

The Sunday Ladies will follow the last group at approximately 9.15am and the competition will be Medal.
