2015 Entry Forms

Dear RNZAF Golfing Society Members (Past and Present),

Planning is now well underway for the 65th RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament taking place at Rangitikei Golf Club Sunday 29th November – Thursday 3rd December 2015. The annual tournament is an excellent opportunity to get away from it all for a couple of days, stun us all with your golfing prowess (or at least get your clubs out in the fresh air after a year in hibernation!) and enjoy the great social atmosphere that has been going now for 65 glorious years!!

Here is a link to the entry forms for this years tournament:

Civilian entry form RNZAF Golf Society Tournament 2015

Membership Application RNZAF Golfing Society

NZDF entry form RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament 2015

Please note that there is one entry form for NZDF personnel and a different entry form for non-NZDF personnel which details meal requirements, so please ensure the right form is used. For those who need to renew their Society membership either do so through a Base Golf Club if you are currently serving, or use the membership application form that is also attached and return it to me at the same time as the tournament entries. As detailed on the forms, please note that payments for the tournament and Society membership are paid into different accounts so wherever possible please send separate payments.

As ever, entries for the tournament are limited so it is important to get your entries in early to avoid disappointment. Whilst it is understandable that work commitments sometimes cannot be confirmed more than a couple of weeks in advance, a cut-off date for entries has been set at Friday 13th November. Any entries received after this date will be placed on a reserve list and, dependant on numbers, may only be offered a place in the tournament if space allows.

Accommodation at RNZAF Base Ohakea is being made available again this year to those who request it but please be aware that due to the running of a major NZDF exercise right up to the tournament, availability may be limited or indeed may change at the last minute. I will keep you all informed if availability changes, but encourage you to get your entries in early to avoid disappointment.

Clearly, as a milestone 65th year for Society the success of the tournament is heavily dependant on the number of players. On behalf of the organising committee I ask for your continued support in spreading the word and encouraging as many people as possible, new and existing members, to attend and make this a year to remember.

Thanks for your ongoing support and I look forward to seeing you all in December!

Kind regards,

Sean Willis

Sec/Treasurer RNZAF Golfing Society

Date for the 65th Society Tournament 2015 is 29 NOV 15

The date for the 65th Annual RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament has been set at Sunday 29 November to Thursday 3 December 2015 at the Rangitikei Golf Club. This is slightly  later in the year than normal but necessary to deconflict with a busy period within the RNZAF, thus hopefully allowing maximum attendance for serving Society members. Pencil these dates in your diaries and look out for more details and tournament entry forms early next year.

Welcome to your new website

The new RNZAF Golfing Society website is all up and running and ready for you to use. It has been designed for all current and future members to enjoy. Have a look around and get involved.

The important things first:

bunnings_100You need to register now and introduce yourself in the welcome forum for a chance to win a $100 Bunnings voucher. Every society member who introduces themselves goes in the draw for the $100 voucher and the draw will take place on the 01 April 2015 (the Air Force’s Birthday). After you have introduce yourself, feel free to start another topic and use this site to communicate with each other, maybe give a bit of stick before the next tournament.

In the community news section, people like Nick Onley (President), Sean Willis (secretary/ treasurer), Polly Perkins (Ohakea Captain), Digby Bentley (Whenuapai Captain), Merv Hughes (Wellington Captain), Brent Davidson (Woodbourne Captain) and myself (site admin) will keep you up to date with the latest news.

It has been a busy time designing this site and I’d like to thank all those that have helped so far. Have a look around and leave me some feedback in the feedback forum (good or bad).

Have a merry xmas and we’ll see you at the next tournament.
