Hi Members

It’s less than a month till the fireworks - no NOT Guy Fawke’s Day on November 5, but two days later - the City of Wellington Classic hosted by Karori GC.

If you’ve already played it, you’ll need no convincing it’s a superb tournament, which draws players from all over Wellington. There’s plenty of prizes, and even more fun to be had. Get in there.

Wondering how DO I get in there? Look, here’s a handy link  https://www.karorigolf.co.nz/event-calendar or enter on the board at the club. Just ENTER.



Twilight starts Thursday 15th October tee off 4.30 - 5.30.
A $20 entry includes BBQ Dinner. It's a great way to play fun social golf (and put on weight).


We have a new delivery of balls with ProVs still $79,99 and TruFeel at a bargain $39.99. We also have the Footjoy and Titleist catalogues available in the shop, so if members need gear they can order through the club.


At Junior Day on Thursday, we had around 30 kids between five and 15 have a go at golf, much fun was had by all. Thanks to Adrian Porter and Megan Healy for organising and Paul Moorhead, John Markham, Peter Howman, and George for helping out.

Spot the next Tiger Woods.


George at his best.

G’day members! I’m George and I have been working at the club since the summer of 2018, now working four days a week. Golf has been a part of my life from a young age, when I was a member at Shandon for my junior years.

After a prolonged sabbatical from the game, I have been a member at Karori since 2018. Hopefully I’ll be able to join one of the interclub teams for the upcoming season!


Born and raised in Karori, I finished up at Wellington College in 2015. I really enjoyed my high school days, especially in my stint as a cricket umpire of the Wellington Premier men’s grade where I was able to umpire a few past and current Firebirds.

I then went to Dunedin for University, where I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies.

I was lucky enough to be a member at Otago Golf Club during my time in Dunedin, which I rank a very close second favourite to our course.

I’m looking for full time work in the area of marketing but COVID has proved the job hunt to be quite difficult so if anyone knows of any openings that would fit well with my degree then let me know!

Until the right opportunity shows itself I am more than happy to be part of the team here at KGC.


It’s always a pleasure talking to everyone after their rounds on the weekend! However, if you do ever catch me in a bad mood, you can blame that on Anna getting on my nerves!

George less fresh-faced, post working with Anna.


On Sunday, Anthony Bryant won the Shirties Niue Shield. He was presented the trophy in a moving ceremony in the clubhouse. Here is a photo of that magic moment.


You will see that we have started organising the trophy cabinet ready for displaying and celebrating the winners from 2020. If you have a Club trophy in your possession we ask that you please return it to the Club as soon as possible



It's that time again in the year when we are working out teams for 2021. We have Div 2, 5, 8 and 11 teams entered. We have set dates for the Interclub trials and have tried to spread these over November/December and January to allow for maximum participation. Put these dates in your calendar.

Club Day on a Sunday has shown an increase in participation which is a positive spin and with days like we’ve had this week what other place would you want to be? 


The Karori Cup is a year-long event based on Stableford Competition on Sundays. All you need to do to enter is hit "YES" for Club Day.


At the end of November we will be calculating the best 10 stableford rounds from each player to find out the 2020 Karori Cup winner. There is definitely still plenty of time to get those good score cards coming in!



The green staff are spending time working on the surrounds and fertiliser to ensure some spring growth. We ask that players please refrain from taking carts/trundlers close to the fringe so heavy traffic areas can have time to rejuvenate. 

Try to avoid heavy traffic areas with carts and trundlers!

The new subscription prices have been published on the website and will become active from October 1, as flagged by the president in his letter last month.


Members can now also pay their subs by debit/credit cards  and online banking through the website after logging in using their membership number and password.


Have a look right here.




If you want to avoid printing cards, use the golf.co.nz app instead, it has a scorecard enabled. Simply use the clubhouse wifi to open it and the scorecard before you tee off - then it is able to operate in offline mode.


Try it out in the safety of your own home. It’s much, much easier than putting on the 11th.
