Not only will we host New Zealand's top professional and amateur golfers for a nationally recognised four day tournament, but we will also hold our own Pro Am in the same week, as we join the other existing host clubs on an expanding national circuit. Presently, the following clubs host a Charles Tour event - New Plymouth, Tauranga, Muriwai, Manawatu, and Harewood.
We will work in tandem with Mike Godinet, who is contracted to NZ Golf to facilitate sponsorship partnerships. We will need to partner with businesses for the long haul, right from a major naming right sponsor for the Akarana event, through to hole sponsors etc.
This a major opportunity for Akarana to build some much needed local and national profile - and will provide a chance for all staff to develop their skills to an even higher level. There will be opportunities for volunteers on and around the course.
Members - yes their will be some disruption during the week of play - but we hope to work in with Muriwai and other Auckland golf clubs each year to provide reciprocal rights. The tournaments at each club will formulate an exciting two weeks of golf in Auckland with agreement that we run these tournaments in successive weeks except for 2014 when there is a one week gap.
For the first year only in 2014, we have agreed to these dates in April - Wednesday 16th Pro Am, then Thurs 17th to Sun 20th inclusive for 'Akarana Charles Tour' tournament. Reopen for members on Easter Monday. Coring will go ahead from Monday 28th April.
