The Beginner Golfer......
Family golf ?
Golf is a great game for the whole family! See our JUNIORS page for details about children's golf.
Whakatane Golf Club makes it easy to join up the whole family - free membership for the kids, or reduced membership for the grandkids.
When the kids handicap is lower than Mum and Dad's it's time for them to start walking home.
Too old to start playing golf?
Many people go through their lives wishing they had tried golf when they were young, because by the time they retire, it is too late. Not true ! many take up the sport in their 50s and 60s, then continue into their 70s and 80s.
Whakatane Golf Club has a very active veterans membership, some of whom play 3 or 4 times per week, or more! Veterans events are held regularly for visitors from all over New Zealand.
If you are interested in joining Whakatane Golf Club, we encourage you to discuss your circumstances with Teresa ( office manager ), she will identify the subscription package that will best suit your needs. Options to pay your subscription in monthly installments are available.
