      • The following table outlines our current membership figures as at 21 April and compares them to the same period last year.  The expected decline in those taking out full membership (about 50) has occurred but this has been offset in some part by increase in subscriptions.  This is just a snapshot as new members join us regularly.  These figures are robust, however, since they include no one from l

      • Waikanae Golf Club
      • Many of you will have heard that Andy Rutter, former Assistant Course Superintendent at Waikanae, has been appointed Course Superintendent to replace the recently departed Darren Shaw.  Andy has been a great worker over several years and has learnt his trade at our course.  It is, therefore, most fitting that we are now reaping the benefit of his training and considerable experience and expertise.

It was made possible by a grant from NZ Golf which covered their tuition fees for a number of lessons from Kevin Smith.  Now that their tuition period is over, the

    • MELBOURNE CUP TOURNAMENT 2008
      • 6 Nov 2008
      • Waikanae Golf Club
      •        Building on previous years of experience, the organising committee comprising Stu McLaren (as always supported by Jane), Grant Waterhouse, Barry Lee, Blair Coburn and Paul Charlesworth, created an extravaganza unrivaled on the Kapiti Coast.        This year the event included an all day free BBQ (kindly sponsored by Tegal Chicken) and an outside bar (subsidised by DB Breweries) both manned by Stu McLaren. The 14th hole had a “triple your money” opportunity fot those fancying their ability - thanks to Brian Futter.         A new innovation this year was a live TAB terminal in the clubhouse - kindly supplied and skillfully manned by the one and only Gary “I REALLY MUST GO HOME” Mabey. Thanks again Chopper!!!         Once again Barry Lee organised a very successful sweepstake in conjunction with the Big Race! The main winners being Chris Turner, The Fourskins syndicate and House.         Courtesy of PANASONIC and in conjunction with HARVEY NORMAN Coastlands Branch, we were able to showcase a ‘top of the line’ overhead projection unit to provide fullscale race coverage all day! It is with great pride that the organising committee can announce that due to the financial success of the day, this high tech unit is to be purchased  and will become a permanent feature of the lounge, to enable vastly improved coverage of future sporting events.          Many thanks to ALL who contributed and supported this fine event.
