Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Pirongia Golf Club website. We hope that its contents are of value, whether you intend being a casual visitor or a potential club member.

Most clubs have a characteristic or two which sets them apart from other clubs and Pirongia is no exception. An obvious feature is the background setting of Mount Pirongia with its tidy, pastured,lower slopes, contrasting against the bush clad upper reaches. The close proximity to the bush provides, particularly during the spring months, an abundance of tui, as well as smaller numbers of kaka (NZ native parrot) and kereru, our native pigeon. Additional to this, the Waipa River and its tributary, the Mangapiko Stream, enhance the view from parts of the course.

Making the Pirongia Golf Club unique is the race track, integrated into the course, which is used once a year for the well known Pirongia Boxing Day races. The transformation of the golf course to a race track, with attendances of up to 10,000 people, and then back to a golf course, with just over one days play unavailable, bears testimony to another invaluable characteristic of Pirongia ... a great spirit of co-operation and voluntary help. It is this which also enables the golf club to keep the course in a neat and tidy condition, whilst maintaining very low costs of membership.

Should your visit coincide with our club day and our usual tee-off times, please make yourself known to the starting official who will arrange a playing group for you. Your presence is most welcome and we wish you an enjoyable round.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Pitchford Trophy Results.

While the weather looked terrible again the conditions were surprisingly good with only a few showers to go with the few golfers who strode the fairways on Sunday.

The battle of the day was the semi final Pitchford Trophy match between Steve Law / Tyne Watts and Barry Cavey / Terry Charlesworth. There was never any more than a shot in it, with Cavey/Charlesworth leading 1 up after 9 holes. Two wins in a row had the Law/Watts team 1 up but that was short lived and soon they were 1 down.

Playing the 18th hole 1 down and with Tyne wanting to take off to watch Bathhurst he holed a long birdie putt to take the match to the 19th hole. With Law and Watts lining up putts for pars and nett 3's Charlesworth proceeded to hole a 40 foot putt for a nett 3 himself. Needless to say Law/Watts both missed and the Cavey / Charlesworth combination were victorious.

The other semi final match will be played later in the week as players were away representing the club in the King Country Champs.

Slaws Scoops 24th September, 2017

Pitchford Trophy Results

This year, there were only 11 pairings that started this four ball best ball matchplay competition. As a result, only three matches were contested in the first round.

Jim Dunn and Ross Scown were too strong for Bill Fox and John Creek.

Derek Boyle and Ken Bardsley ganged up on Scott Law when Ben Jefferies couldn't play.

Rob Taylor and Brent Keene proved to be too much for Sean Bonenkamp and Josh Law.

Other News

Steve Law found the stress of calving in all the mud had lifted his golf to a higher plane as he took out the senior scramble with the best nett round of the day (66). Two shots back were Kevin Appleby abd Derek Boyle.

Barry Cavey took out the junior scramble with 67 points. I am guessing that means he probably took home two or three other raffle prizes also! John Creek also played well with a nett 68.
