CLUB NEWS UPDATES

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!


Waitangi Golf Club - Helipad

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.

Contact Merle.

Our course will be closed on Saturday 20 May as we host the Golf Northland North Zone 36 Hole Men’s Pennant teams, sponsored by On Core Golf.

With this being the final round before the play off for the North Zone it is an important day, especially for our team in Division Two. Darcy Thorburn’s team sits in second place, half a point behind Kerikeri and we play Kerikeri in this round.

With home advantage a win will take the team to the top of the division and a place in the North Zone Final, no pressure lads!

The team will be Duncan Robertson, Darren Markin, Peter Baugh, Darcy Thorburn, John McKiernan and Scott McClelland.

If you would like to caddie your support would be appreciated, or come along and watch some exciting golf.

WOMEN’S GOLF


Congratulations to Sue Whittaker and Merle Tipene who won the final of the Rosebowl competition from Chook Henare and Ruth Hills last Saturday.


Unfortunately our National Teams representatives found the course conditions at The Pines GC very  difficult to play last Saturday so they didn’t score well enough to feature in the prizes. Hard luck ladies, but good on you for representing the club.


This Sunday is the last round of the Ladies Weekend pennants competition. Waitangi Ladies will play the competition leaders, Ngunguru GC, at Mangawhai. Waitangi is 5 points behind Ngunguru so they will be looking to knock the leaders of their perch.

The 18-Hole Pennant competition will be played at Kaitaia on Monday, both teams are mid-field in the competition.

Good golfing to all of the teams.
