Rarangi golf scorecard
Message to all Rarangi Golf Club Members & Visitors
As you all know by now the Government have removed the restrictions around everything Covid (unless you are travelling overseas or in contact with travellers).
To that end, we can go back to “Normal”.
Therefore, from Wednesday 10th June, no more “checking in” at the club is required.
I will leave the QR Code poster on the entrance pillar for those that would like record their movements electronically for their personal use. (All previous manual check-ins will now be destroyed as promised).
No more Covid 19 donations required (unless you’d planned a lump sum and not got round to it yet..)
No more 30cm GIMMEES on the greens – you must putt out unless in a stableford round you can no longer score a point in.
Rakes will be in bunkers – so no more “Placing” away from disturbed ground.
You are now required to exchange cards at the start of a round with your “Marker” and verify at the end as before.
I recommend, that if you are feeling unwell, and/or show/feel symptoms of Covid, that you stay away till better, and if you have any concerns you make contact with your Doctor to be safe. Can I also recommend the continued hand washing regime prior to coming in the Club House, and of course the wiping down of your tables after use and going home.
I would like to thank each and every one of you for your diligence, and efforts to comply with some “painful” requirements put on us in extremely trying circumstances. Also, the many hours of Committee work that went on in the back ground trying to mitigate the cost, and attend to our responsibilities for the Club to survive. A great many thanks to the generous Donors who made “lump sum” donations, large and small – hugely appreciated!!
We didn’t have an outbreak here, and now reap the rewards.
Please encourage Visitors to come and play and help offset the unfortunate financial implications of not being “Open for Business” as normal. Pip, and all our fantastic Volunteers again have the Course looking magical at the moment.
I look forward to seeing you out there, and the chance to once again “shake hands” if winning the beer…
President Rarangi Golf Club,
Rarangi Golf Club – Simply Brilliant golf every day
The course, which snuggles between the surf of Cloudy Bay and bush clad hills dominated by Mount Robertson, offers a challenge for all grades of golfers. You can move to the rhythm of the surf on the beach, smell the ozone, watch the tui and fantails, admire the bush covered backdrop, and play golf all at the same time, all year round.
The tree lined, slightly undulating and easily walked course has par 4s and 5s with subtle bends that make your driving important, some new pot hole bunkers and intriguing greens ( usually quick, which generally fall away from the ocean – but not always), to test for accurate pitching, chipping and putting.
Irrigation provides excellent fairway conditions in summer, while free draining soils ensure dry underfoot conditions in winter – a truly all-weather course.
The rural setting means the course lacks the crowds of some more urban clubs, so on occasions you could have the place virtually to yourself; it would pay to bring a friend just in case.
The clubhouse is available for hire for weddings, family functions and other gatherings. Contact email@example.com
All visitors are welcome – check our green fees. The course is easily accessible, being just 20 minutes north from Blenheim turning off SH1 at Tuamarina, and after the game you can check out the friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse, or visit a vineyard to enjoy the fabulous Marlborough wines. Brilliant!
