Dear Guest, Friday, 24 January, 2020

Member Update – from Club Captain Doug Claridge

A new golf season is upon us. The 2020 competition season opens this weekend and promises to have some new and interesting additions to the competition golf. The 2020 programme book is available at the office or pro shop for those who have not picked one up. For those who are not aware the course is closed for the Canterbury Strokeplay on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of February.

The course is looking dry and has had a lot of use over the summer break but judging by the scores in the summer cup, it’s playing well. Please be aware that the smoking ban is in force and Canterbury now has a total fire ban in place due to the dry weather. This weekend the Ladies have an opening day Stableford, and the start of their year seasons competition. For the Men the Peninsula Beachfront Resort Shootout commences, which is a flat entry fee of $50 for the season, and a Par round. Next weekend is the opening day Shotgun at 12.00pm. For those who have been in club house over the summer break would have noticed the TV with results and announcement of some new competitions for all Saturday members. This is being driven by Bruce Maetzig who is leading a Board sub-committee tasked with new membership initiatives and growth. More on this from Bruce to follow.

Pioneer Race to Millbrook

As some of you may be aware, we are starting a new competition open to all members (Men & Women) playing on Saturdays, called eclectic (also known as ‘Ringer’). This competition will be a multi-round competition played on every Saturday starting 25th January, and running through to 14th November, and is open to all members playing on Saturday club day at Harewood.

Each players lowest nett score on each hole over the course of multiple Saturdays is recorded, resulting in one very good 18 hole score. Lowest score wins the prize (in the event of more than 1 person being on the same score, a lucky draw will be done to find the winner as there is only 1 prize)

And the prize? - We are pleased to announce that Pioneer Pools (Chris Sweeney) has agreed to sponsor this competition ,meaning we can now advise that the prize for the winner will be a Stay and Play Golf Package in a Deluxe Studio apartment at the Millbrook Resort at Arrowtown, including a $200.00 meal card.

The competition will show on the dot golf screen as ‘The Pioneer Race to Millbrook’ when you get your score card before you play each Saturday, you don’t have to do anything else, you will be automatically entered, and the best bit – as a Saturday member at Harewood, entry is free!

Good luck!

New 2020 Twilight Competition – Armstrong Motor Group Twilight Golf Series

Following on from the successful 2019 Twilight competition sponsored by Tony Pole and Jamie Steel, I am pleased to announce a new sponsor has been secured for the 2020 series.

Armstrong Motor Group have come on board with a co-branded vehicle plus $1,000 each series towards prizes.
Series 1 starts Tuesday February 11th and will run for 8 weeks with Series 2 starting Tuesday October 27th, again for 8 weeks.
More details to follow in a separate email.

Smoking/Fire Ban on Course

As Doug mentioned, there is a total fire ban in place and there is strictly no smoking on and around the course.

If someone in your group lights up please politely remind them of this rule – no exceptions as the consequences could be quite severe for the Club.
