Take a great big bow and pat yourselves on the back everybody !!!
For those that don’t know “Project 11’ has been a dream for many years and to see it finally completed and looking so spectacular is a dream come true for many people.
The years of planning and fund raising have paid off !!
It could not have been completed without the help and support from all of our volunteers ... A HUGE Thank You to everyone that made this dream possible...words are not enough...
Thank You !!!!
The irrigation line was completed on January 21st and the final layers of sand laid.
When that was completed the final contours of the green and fairway were started.
If anyone ever requires the services of a digger and truck Andrew Younger is a blessing in disguise - a big thank you for your support and for keeping Rob out of Gloria’s hair !!
Not only did the 11th change from a Par 4 to a 5 but it changes the 12th as well.
There are now more tees in place stretching the playing area back to the sea - you almost feel like you are walking on water !!
With the addition of two new bunkers on the left and three on the right - the 12th became a Par 4.
On Tuesday 7th March 2011 the green was seeded
29th March 2011
How’s this for club spirit - the Vets gave up their spare time to collect all the loose stones on the new fairway...we hear there was the odd boulder or two that they dealt too as well.
Construction underway on new tees for the 12th
September 13th 2011 - Working Bee to remove the old 11th Green.

What a great day we had for the Opening at the 11th! The sun was out and there was no wind!!!
A great little turnout and wasn’t Rae Ensor a star!!!
It was lovely to hear that little bit of history about the club and Haki Maioha’s 7 iron into the green was perfectly placed too!!
Hi Merle ,
Just thought i`d drop you a quick line and tell you how much our party enjoyed your course on Sunday .
We played Kauri the day before and there was always a chance of a ` come down ` .
Nothing of the sort !! The course is beautifully presented and the greens were like carpets giving a much truer roll than Kauris . Holes 10 to 15 are delightful , we couldn`t have been more impressed .
So a big thank you and well done to you team , we will definitely be back .
