The Board and I are delighted to announce that Summerset are the Clubs new principal sponsor and partner on an initial three year arrangement. 

 Summerset are one of NZ"s largest and most respected operators in the retirement village and aged care sector with 23 villages nationally and more in the pipeline. Locally we will develop a close relationship with their Summerset at Wigram and Summerset on Cavendish villages, with a new Village at Avonhead also in development.

 More information will follow about the relationship and you will certainly see some changes around the Club and Course with Summerset branding being prominent as a starting point. Needless to say if any members are considering a move to a retirement village or aged care then please contact me in the first instance.

 Lastly, I would like to acknowledge the contribution of Board member Phil Rotherham. Phil has worked very hard to identify potential major sponsors over the past 5 years or so and I am delighted for him that this introduction to the great people at Summerset has led to this outcome. Please acknowledge this if you see Phil in and around the Club.

Pro Shop - Staff Appointment

Carl Brooking

As some of you may know, James O’Connell will have his last day in the pro shop this coming Monday May 7th before moving to a full-time role at Riccarton Park Driving Range. I’d like to thank James for his contribution since joining mid last year and wish him well in his new role.

I’m delighted to announce that Carl Brooking will be joining Craig in the delivery of golf services at Harewood as Assistant Professional. Carl has been a familiar face around Harewood since returning home after a few years coaching in China.

Carl is an NZPGA AA qualified professional and has represented both Canterbury and New Zealand, twice being involved in the World Eisenhower Championships representing NZ before turning pro and joining the Australasian PGA Tour for 6 years. You can learn more about Carl via his website www.carlbrookinggolf.co.nz

Carl and Craig will be working together the next few Saturday’s to refresh Carls retail skills and knowledge, as well as meet our members of course. Surely the “Two C’s” working closely together must mean we have the best golf service delivery team in town!

Please make yourselves known to Carl and extend a warm Harewood welcome when you see him.
