Dear Members,

Cold weather is upon us now but I think its manageable better than the rainy seasons, with a bit of sun out there you can still have an enjoyable round of golf on your home course. The greens and the fairways are still in the best conditions ever for this time of the year and with the upcoming Chapman Annual Fundraising Golf Day we are ready and set good to go.

Remember we are open every day of the year except on Xmas Day and our services range from the golf course, business lunch, corporate functions facilities, Sunday lunch 3 course menus and any event you may wish us to host for you.


Book tee off times for your Wednesday or Saturday Club with Ranga or Douglas on or phone in on (04) 747328 if you are interested in participating in any of the corporate golf days or fundraisers.

The 2016 Club Championships for the Men were held from the 8th -9th of May 2016. The Championships participated by over 120 members with a full field, were not to be missed. As these are the most exciting and thrilling Championships for all the golfers in the Club, everyone wanted to be part of it. The two days started at early hours (6am) with teas and juices for all players before they went on the course hoping to be the Men’s Club Championship for 2016. Unfortunately every game has one winner and the most impressive performance came from one of the youngest men golfers. Congratulations to Tafara Mpofu for winning the Men’s Club Championship. We would like to thank the Ladies Section for their assistance at the tee boxes and making sure these Championships were a success.

The Ladies Club Championships were held from the 21st – 22nd of May 2016. The Championships were just as exciting with over 30 ladies playing and having almost 5 of those 30 being young girls under the age of 18.
