Manukorihi Golf Club President
Welcome to the 2019/20 Season
Greetings to you all and a warm welcome to the first season of the 21st Century’s Roaring Twenties – yes, it’s now 2020, and Summer seems to have arrived at last! Our Opening Day this Saturday 1st February will be a mass start at 9.30am, providing a great opportunity for members to mix and meet the new committee and new members, and catch up with fellow club golfers. A big thank-you to our course staff and volunteers who have worked over the holiday period to ensure that our course continues to be in great condition.
At the AGM on 2nd December, it was very pleasing to see a good turnout of members and a full committee elected, with most 2019 committee members standing again and providing valuable continuity into this year. Two members joining the committee for the first time, Martin Nobbs and Barry Burns, have gone straight into the key positions of Club Secretary and Treasurer, respectively – many thanks to Martin and Barry for stepping up. And a big thanks to those vacating the posts.
I am sure you have all appreciated the many and various course and facility improvement projects completed over the last few years. These initiatives will continue, but one new project in particular being targeted for this year is the long overdue upgrade of the amenities block.
Sincere thanks to all who help out at our Club in so many ways to ensure our golf course continues to be in wonderful condition. It is very rewarding to get so many positive comments from visitors to our Club.
All the best to everyone for this year: we all have days when our golf pleases us, for at least 12-15 holes anyway, but also days when it frustrates us – on these latter days, just remember all those people unable to participate in golf for whatever reason who would call any day walking around our golf course a great day!
To good health and good golfing,
