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.
WAITANGI GOLF CLUB
GOLF UPDATE APRIL 21
INTER CLUB AT WHANGAROA
27 of our members headed north for our first Inter Club away against Whangaroa on Saturday 23 April. The weather was perfect and encouraged additional Whangaroa players to attend making the total 66 players and a great atmosphere in the clubhouse after golf as we enjoyed the traditional local hospitality.
Some notable individual performances; with Jackie Morgan and Bob Crawley both scoring 42 points, while Clint Brljevich and Darren Markin both shot 71 gross. However Whangaroa won the day as our players struggled to cope with slower greens. Based on the top twenty Stableford scores the result was Whangaroa 741 against Waitangi 707.
Whangaroa enjoyed the day and are keen to have a rematch at our Club this year, rather than wait until next year. We are working on potential dates and will keep you posted.

Work has started on an area behind the Pro Shop. The grass has being sprayed out and dirt for mounding has been dropped. We are unsure of how long it will be before the bunker is ready, just keep watching that space.
Reminder: Car Parking
Unless the car park is full, all vehicles must be parked in the club carpark not on the grass behind the Pro Shop.
