NGUNGURU GOLF COURSE
The Ngunguru Golf course is open for casual green fee players and visitors are welcome to join in our haggles. The Club day for 18 hole mixed (Men and women) players is Sunday afternoon at 12.15pm and the 9 hole players have a mixed haggle at 8.30am Sunday morning. At any time when there are no tournaments, fixtures or club events casual green fee players are welcome. 9 hole player fees are $15, while 18 hole fees are $20 and we use an honesty box system as the golf office is only manned on days there are club events being held.
The course is a par 31 for the front 9 holes or 62 for 18 holes for men and 33 front 9 for the women with 65 for 18. It is set in a valley with scenic views from 2 tees which are up slight hills, and is an interesting course with a few water features set to challenge players. It is a 9 hole course with the second 9 having several different tees and red flags on the greens from different position for the back 9.
The majority of members are 18 whole players but the 9 hole lady players join the 18 hole Wednesday morning (8.30am) ladies and the 18 hole men play on Wednesday afternoon at 12.15pm. The Vets (over 50’s) play on Tuesday afternoon at 1.45pm for 9 holes. The course may be closed for casual play on Sundays from 11am to 4pm.

NGUNGURU GOLF CLUB BEGINNINGS
The Ngunguru Golf Club was established in 1989 after the land became available for sale in 1988. A committee was formed in 1989 and the action began with Doug Finlayson and Bob Johnson being the instigators of the course when the local council purchased the property, and it was arranged that the Golf Club could lease the land for a ‘peppercorn rental’. This original deal is still in force today. The course was built over several months with the help of volunteers and machinery donated by local contractors.
The formal opening was a 2 day event over Labour Weekend in 1989, and the course still has the original design except for 2 holes, mainly the ladies 7th tee (changes were made by including a par 5 hole for the ladies between the houses back towards Waitoi Rd.) and the 9/18 tees (this was changed in recent years due to the Tennis Club building another court in the position where the original 9th green was located).
Over the years there have been several Groundsmen and Greenkeepers as well as working bees to trim trees, repair tees, weed eating and mowing of fairways. These are all ongoing duties required and without the volunteers who do this we would not have this great course with a few interesting holes and challenges. This is all run by a committee of 8 – 10 people and sub committees to deal with Advertising, Raffles and Match etc. details to name a few. A recent sub- committee was formed for ‘Health and Safety’ which is in the interest of all workers and players using the golf course.
There are several great Tournaments held each year for 18 and 9 hole players, along with lots of competition and laughs in the Club's bar (the 19th hole for golfers).
