Even the most competitive golfer needs some “social” golf time.
The Golf Section has a membership in excess of 50 members, all with differing golfing abilities, from the low handicapper to those just beginning.
Golf outings are organised on a monthly basis where all members compete for the Colleen Cherry Memorial Trophy (Best Stableford for the day). Prizes on the day are awarded to the “good” golfers on the day, with those whose day on the golf course wasn’t so good, going into a “lucky card” draw giving everyone a chance to take home a prize.
Members also compete over the year for the “Best of Year” awards which are presented in June.
The June and December events are “teams” events and followed by a dinner. At the beginning of each year a subsidised “weekend away trip” is organised followed in February when a “RSA Welfare” Fundraising Tournament is held.
Throughout the year, Thursday evening raffles are run which allows for the subsidising of all events including the “away” trip.
In 2011 and 2015, the Rangiora RSA has hosted the New Zealaad RSA Golf Tournament – a 4 day event hosting players from throughout the country. In the interim years, members have represented the Club at the National event played in Waihi, Rotorua and Tauranga.
The Golf section is also represented at the Men’s and Women’s SI Chartered Clubs Tournament, and event it hosted two years ago. The challenge has also been taken up to host the NZ Chartered Clubs Golf Tournament in early February 2017.
