President’s September Update

Maramarua Golf Club Update September 2016

As some of you will know, Manukau Golf Club have opened a new course in Ardmore. There have been some delays in getting all 18 holes ready for play so that their members are only able to use 9 holes at present. The MGC Board has forwarded an invitation to Manukau members to come and use our course for a green fee and they are welcome to join in Club days or casual golf. Please welcome these players to our facilities.

The turf collection is still not confirmed but Graham is confident that it will proceed on Friday, Sunday and Monday. His phone number is 09 2982468 if you can help. Entry to Manukau Golf Club will be via Keywella Drive, Conifer Grove.

The board has decided to cancel the proposed raffle because there was a risk of not selling enough tickets to cover costs. We thank Jim Black for his work on getting it to the printing stage with the appropriate approvals etc.

Meanwhile the Spring Race Night and Dinner is going ahead with tickets selling at the Office. The first race is 5:30 pm and the evening should be finished by 9pmā€¦come and enjoy a good dinner, good company and a fun evening at the Golf Club Sunday 11th September.

The drainage work on the 13th fairway was given a good test last week and Tony tells me it worked well with water rushing out during the downpour and stopping soon after as the rain drained away. It was certainly dry there this week. Thanks to the hard working men who helped with this project.

As the end of the year and the AGM approaches members need to be considering people who may be able to take on the challenge of a Board position for the Club. Please think about whether you could share your interest and skills in the governance of this Golf Club.

Sue Brice, President
