We are looking for some personal words about what you like about golfing at Maramarua. Joe Bloggs says.. ‘If I don’t get my golfing in I’d be hitting trees for no reason.’ Mary Bloggs says… ‘A great meal and chat after golf makes my day’. If you would like to share with us, you can email, drop by the office or drop you words into the suggestion box in the shop.

If you are out and about, or just feel like a walk around your neighborhood – we have a variety of Maramarua advertising material that you can help the club by picking up and distributing around your local area, workplace, social or sports club.
