President's update

June 2021


Kia Orana from Rarotonga.

We’d like to welcome back Lyn to the position of Bar Manager and thank you to Sandy for stepping up to help keep the bar running smoothly. We’ve had a recruitment drive to find more volunteer bar people, you should see some new faces behind the bar soon.
Please be aware that the Duty Manager has sole discretion on what happens in the bar and in the licenced areas around the clubhouse. Please respect their decisions!


The Men’s Interclub season has finished. Our teams did well but weren’t able to bring any trophies home this year. Better luck next year.

Our Ladies Silver Section Interclub has also finished, along with our Women’s Weekend Section – an enjoyable season had by all, but a bit like the men, unable to “bring home the bacon”.  The 9-Hole Mixed Section also had an enjoyable season with no luck this year.  Our North Canterbury Women’s Section are still playing, and Amberley is doing very well, in the lead at the moment – keep it up!!

On 23rd May we opened up our course for a Charity Golf Tournament to raise funds for the “Ellie Stokes Trust”. Ellie was a budding young horse trainer who suffered a tragic accident that left her paralysed from the chest down. The event was a huge success, raising $30,000 on the day. Steve Thomas was the driving force behind this event and it went off like clockwork. I had the opportunity to meet Ellie and her family and friends. They were such a great hard-working group. I was proud to represent our club and allow them to use our course and facilities.

Keep warm and dry

Cheers Laurie
