'Life is very interesting. In the end, some of your greatest plans become your greatest strengths'.
We are hosting the Clubs NZ National Conference from Wednesday 20th March to Sunday 24th March. There will be in excess of 300 delegates and partners using the Club during this time. We are hoping to give both the visitors and our members an enjoyable experience throughout the conference.

With 124 players competing our congratulations go to the team who came in 5th place. They mentioned 'It was great to renew friendships & catch up with fellow golfers from the North Island. The Waitomo Club put on a good Tournament with a lovely dinner & prizegiving in Te Kuiti. Our accommodation was great. A very enjoyable weekend & our thanks go to the Golf section for supporting the North Island Ladies Champs each year'.
At the end of last year our men completed in the 'Mens NI Club Championship' at Whanganui. Our team of Tony Woods, Ian Hawke & Warren Green finished middle of the field. They mentioned 'our accommodation was nice & host Stephanie very obliging. After a mixed practice on both courses we tackled Belmont Course but didn't play to our potential, but still enjoyed the day. Next day at Castlecliff we all improved, which as pleasing.

GUIDELINES FOR INDIVIDUALS VISITING OTHER CLUBS
- You must provide proof of membership of your own Club. Each club will have its own individual entry requirements according to the club's rules, even if you are a member of another club you may be required to sign in.
- Under the law, clubs can only sell and supply alcohol to members of the club concerned, guests of a member of the club concerned and reciprocal visitors (members of another Clubs New Zealand member club). Unless a club has been granted a condition on their licence, a person who is not a member of any club, who has been invited to the club by a reciprocal visitor will not be able to be sold or supplied alcohol while in the club.
- Your club must be a financial member of Clubs New Zealand.
- Check with the club beforehand about dress code, special rules or ticket-only events.
- If you pay frequent visits to another club, you may be required to join it.
- Those RSAs that are not members of Clubs New Zealand may not extend reciprocal visiting rights.
- Failure to observe the rules and by-laws of the club you are visiting may result in non-admission or removal from the premises. In extreme cases, the withdrawal of visiting rights for either you or your entire club may result.
- Be aware that individual clubs have the right to control entry to their club, and despite reciprocal rights being in place, you may be denied entry to the club.
- Legal entry requirements in Australia may be different to New Zealand so check before visiting an overseas club.
