RNZAF Golfing Society 2022 Booklet

Kia ora koutou e te whanau

This year’s tournament officially starts tomorrow (30th of Oct) at the Welcome in the Ohakea W/O’s and SNCO’s bar at 1900h.

With 70 entries this year, I am really looking forward to catching up with you all over the tournament.

Attached is the booklet for this year. You will find hard copies in the W/Os and SNCOs bar on Sunday and Monday. The booklet will have the majority of information to help you over the week including the stroke play draw for Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday is an official practice day and this is covered with your entry fee. If you are wanting to book a time or a cart, please contact rangitikeigolf@xtra.co.nz or call 06 322 1475.

Other than tomorrow, the weather looks like it’ll be OK but bring your wet weathers and extra gloves  just in case.

Please support or sponsors for the tournament, MetService, Beca, the Vining Group, Marops and Craig Walker.

See you tomorrow and happy golfing!
