Club Competition & Tournament Results
After a lengthy discussion on the publishing of club competition and tournament results in local newspapers which can be a hit and miss exercise, it was agreed that we would encourage members to use the Golf New Zealand website to view the results of all club competitions and tournaments as these will be available for your viewing once all scorecards are entered into the system on the day of the competition.
To view results, please “click” on the following link Club news and results – Golf New Zealand
It is also suggested that you save this link to your “favorites” bar for quick and easy access in the future.
2021-2022 Subscription Notices
At the Annual General Meeting the recommendation by Management for subscriptions to remain the same as the 2020-2021 season was passed by the meeting.
Subscription notices are currently being prepared for emailing to members on 20 January. Should you be considering a membership category change, please advise the Office prior to this date.
Tee Booking System
Thank you to members who are using this system, especially on non-club days, as it has proved a valuable asset to the Golf Shop in managing the golf course in relation to allowing green fee players on course.
Rangiora Fundraising Tournament
Over the past 2 years, this tournament has been a joint fundraising event for the Club and the Rangiora Volunteer Fire Brigade. The club would like to continue with our support of the Fire Brigade and have scheduled this event for Friday, 19 February 2021.
To run such an event, we need a team of volunteers to assist in gaining sponsors and organization on the day. If you are able to assist, please speak with either Karen Craigie or Sue McFarlane.
