Matt’s message to members

At KGC we have had many challenges this 2020 year and seemingly now some machinery has decided to breakdown. This has meant that our rough is looking rougher, and fairways are not up to the standard that Matt would like. This is not due to his or his team's lack of trying. Fortunately he has managed to secure a hired gang mower so the rough should look less rough and they are all working hard to ensure the course is the best it can be. The greens staff are eagerly awaiting  a replacement part for our fairway mower. Please be patient and make use of the placing through the green’ while you can!

Please take care when walking, particularly in the rough – mind where you put your feet as we have a number of rabbit holes which may be hidden under long grass.

Eagles Murray Halberg

On Saturday 21 November, at Karori Golf Club the Eagles Halberg Day was held. A field of 51 gallantly took on the day with the forecast for extreme winds in the afternoon. Although it was a rather chilly day the wind didn’t really pick up until later in the afternoon. Tucked up nicely in the clubhouse, there was a wonderful atmosphere with plenty of warm food and drink in supply. There were plenty of raffles on offer and also an auction ably led by Keith Gaskin who used his skill and wile to sell off items; all for a very worthy cause - the Halberg Trust.

Our men’s winner, Alex Lim came in with an impressive 40 stableford points while. Gail Kirkland took out the women’s 18 hole section with a steady 36 points. Both these players have qualified to represent Karori Golf Club at the Eagles Field Day in February at Shandon. In the women’s 9 hole division Jane Campbell had a very commanding 20 points. There were only 2 twos carded on this day to Martin Leung (Karori) and Naomi Radburn (Paraparaumu Beach). It was a well organised event and it was an absolute pleasure to have the clubhouse full of laughter and frivolity!


Karori Cup – Closes on 28 November

Club Day on a Sunday has shown an increase in participation which is a positive spin,; it’s so much fun out there, then reading the results later. 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.  On 28 November we will be calculating the best 10 stableford rounds from each player to find out the 2020 Karori Cup winner. Watch this space – who will it be? 


Shoot Out – Sunday 6 December

Looking for a way to volunteer at Karori Golf Club

 “Many hands make light work!”

Dave and Paul have started by volunteering some time to help keep clear a creek bed (No. 13). Join up with a friend or group of friends and adopt a ditch – this means you/your group is responsible for maintaining it – keeping it clear of weeds on a regular basis. All balls found are yours. Can you spare an hour or two?  There is no set time – It is entirely up to you! Can you help us keep our course looking great?

Write your name up on the noticeboard or contact Fiona at karorigolfclub@gmail.com





If you have been out to the club recently you couldn’t have missed noticing the fresh repainting of the cark park lines and directional arrows. This was all arranged by club member Kevin Turner, recently retired from the WCC roading division, and his regular weekend playing partners who funded the job via donations. A big thank to all involved on behalf of the whole club. 

If you have a particular skill which you think could be usefully used by the club somehow, or a pet project you would like to see actioned, please don’t hesitate to offer you’re your services.

Please keep up the handwashing, the checking in, and all of the other usual precautions around this. The authorities fear people are getting lax, and the events of this week have shown it can resurface very quickly.



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.
