GOLF AT LEVEL 2 - AKARANA GOLF CLUB (updated 28 May 2020)

At Level 2, golf can be played with friends from outside of our bubbles and the handicap system is live, however, there are still measures to ensure the health and safety of us all and while it's a natural desire to get back into business as quickly as possible, not everything will happen overnight.

The most important principle is to play it safe, remain physically distant from others and adhere to safe hygiene practices.

Who can play? 

Course open to all.
