Announcing the 68th  RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament 2018

Dear RNZAF Golfing Society Members (Past and Present),

Planning is now well underway for the 68th  RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament taking place at Rangitikei Golf Club Sunday 4th November – Thursday 8rd November 2018. 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 68 glorious years!!

Due to the success of the revised 36 hole competition format last year this format will remain;  stroke play will be played over two days (Mon 5th  and Tue 6th ) followed by two days of match play. The 18 hole tournament will have one day of stroke pay (Mon 5th) followed by 3 days of match play.

Sunday 4th  Dec will be a practice day for all.

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 entry form is used and returned to F/S Isaac Hastings (or RNZAFGolf@nzdf.mil.nz).   For those who need to join or renew their Society membership either do so through a Base Golf Club or use the Society membership application form that is also attached and return it to me. As detailed on the forms, please note that payments for the tournament and Society membership are paid into different accounts so 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 26th October.   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.

By kind permission of the Base Commander, accommodation at RNZAF Base Ohakea is being made available again this year free of charge to those who request it.

Clearly, as a milestone 68th year for Society the success of the tournament is heavily dependent 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 November!

RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament 2017 – Entry Forms

The entry forms for this years RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament have been released!

If you are keen to catch up with some friends and play some golf at the same time, then this is the tournament to enter. This is a cheap tournament and the beer is always cold. What more could you want?

Here are some details of the 2017 tournament:

  • Location: For the first time, the RNZAF Golfing Society Tournament will be held at RNZAF Base Auckland Golf Course Whenuapai. This will definitely make a change and the Auckland Golf Club committee are working hard to make sure this tournament is as good as, if not better, than the tournaments held in Rangitikei.
  • When: Monday 04 December – Thursday 07 December 2017. Both the 18 holers and 36 holers start on the same day. This year they are going to trial splitting the two qualifying rounds over two days. No need to stress about doing the 36 holes on one day for qualifying. Now we can get to the social aspect of this tournament a lot sooner!
  • Cost: Entry Fee $110
  • Entries close 10 November 2017, get them in now!

To help spread the word, tell all those that maybe interested and put this poster (attached) up around the office. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Happy golfing!

Update: If you are having trouble with the forms below, use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC available at https://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/. Do not use Foxit Reon the ITD.  If using ITD, save the form to your ITD files instead of opening and open via DIXS.
