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.



GOLF UPDATE 11 May 2017


MIXED CLUB DAY – SATURDAY 6 MAY


In addition to the fourteen pairs who took part in the Mixed Club Day we were also hosting the Northland 18 Pennant teams, so a busy day on Saturday.


Clear winners of the Mixed Club Day were Alison Taylerson & Gordon Morgan with a massive 48 points. Peter & Jeanette Langerak were second on 46 with Jane Wubben & Dave Hellens and Howard Mercer & Merle Mounsey third and fourth with 45 points.


SUNDAY MEN’S GOLF – SUNDAY 7 MAY


Duncan Spokes was the Net winner of the May Monthly Medal shooting a 65. Paul Truscott was second on 67 followed by Mick Jones and Brian Stokes 68 and Dave Macnee 69.

Brian Stokes shot a Gross 80 to win the Gross prize.


DIGGERS PAIRS MATCH PLAY SUNDAY 14 MAY


16 Pairs qualified for the first round of the Diggers, which will take place on Sunday 14 May.

Brian Stokes and John McKiernan were the top seeds with a combined stableford score of 77 points.

The draw is on the notice board and tee bookings have been made, check Dot Golf for your tee time.


After consideration the Diggers Semi Final and Final dates will remain as per the programme book and the second round of the Diggers and first round of the Consolation will be played on or before Sunday 28 May. This will accommodate the 18 hole Pennant players, who have a round at Sherwood Park on Sunday 21 May.


A competitive Calcutta generated $2,500, which means the buyer of this year’s winners will collect $875. So if you didn’t buy yourselves it’s worth asking for a half share.


For those players not in the Diggers there will be an alternate stableford haggle.

Cards in by 9.30am please.


Also please note that the Jennian Homes Paihia Mothers Day Run/Walk takes place on Sunday and we have been informed that the bridge will be closed between 9am and 10.30am.

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.


CATERING


Clint and Glen will be serving breakfast from 8am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
