The more golf you play the more you realise it’s there’s more to it than just “tee it up and blast it”. And whether you play just socially with your mates or you’re keen to get into it properly, the golf handicap thing becomes important.
So, to get a proper NZ golf handicap you have to join a club … and pay out a fair few bucks for your sub No choice there – but you do have a real choice where you join and how much you pay.
We understand that you might not want to play one course all the time, or fork out a couple of grand to join a city club. So we came up with our Rookie sub – just $120 a year (plus a $30 admin fee the first year only) for real membership of Mangawhai. That gets you into the Dotgolf system and lets you sort out a real NZ Golf handicap that’s valid at any club. You pay signicantly reduced rates when you play at Mangawhai, and affiliated rates at any other club. So after, say, 8 rounds a year you’ve saved the cost of the Rookie sub.
OK, we know some back-country clubs have offered this sort of thing – but they’re courses you’ll most probably never get to play. Whereas, as a Mangawhai Rookie member, your home course is one of NZ’s highest regarded layouts and not much more than 1 hour north of the Auckland CBD.
Plus, once you’re a Mangawhai Rookie we offer you deals and special offers from time to time that reward you for your membership and encourage you to get your mates to join up with you.
