Message from the President

Welcome to the 2019 season, to all new members, sponsors, current members and all new committee members. This Saturday 2nd February is a mass start at 9am.

This is a great opportunity to meet the 2019 committee, new members and a chance to catch up with all your club golfers. The course is in great condition thanks to our greens staff. We have lots happening over the next few weeks with the Mellowpuff Trust at Manukorihi on Friday 1st February. The Trust started 12 years ago at our course. On Sunday 3rd is the Foreman trophy, this is one of the oldest trophies played for in Taranaki. The Manukorihi course will be closed on Friday and until 2pm on Sunday. We have a few mass starts at the beginning of the season for members to mix and get to know your fellow golfers.

The Ladies have their Tuesday golf at 9am.

The New World Wednesday club is going well with great numbers, arrive at 9 for a 9 30am mass start. The Taranaki Sola twilight is on Thursdays evening from 4 to 6pm. We have good numbers and there are meals by our caterer Jan after your game. The chase the ace dollars are getting up for the lucky draw.

If you have a Friday afternoon free, some of the lads meet at midday for a round.

The new programme books are at the club for you to pick up. The programme is on the club’s web site as well. Your club tags will arrive mid-February.

In December the club received a grant of $20,000 from the TSB Community Trust to help go towards a new cart shed, although we are $20,000 short, there is an opportunity for those that have a cart, or looking to buy one in the near future, in buying a long-term lease, $1000.00 for five years.

The committee is putting together a weekly working bee, one day a week for around three hours, this could be on a Sunday or during the week, to help with all the small things around the club and course to keep the Manukorihi Golf Club looking at its best. There are some small projects the committee has targeted for the coming year. There is a wish list on the club notice board, if any of these jobs suit you please talk to John Rayner.

Many thanks to all those that help out at Manukorihi, all the little things add up to keeping Manukorihi in the wonderful condition that it is.
