Futures Event
The Pines Golf Club Team Golf 6 event
Team Golf is suitable for chippers and crushers!

A Chipper – is a new player starting their journey in golf, to learn new skills, have fun and make new friends
A Crusher – is a young golfer who is growing a love for the game and developing their confidence and skills on modified course lengths.

Team Golf is open to girls and boys 15 years and younger, all abilities welcome!
The length of the course is shortened to suit young golfers and played over 6 holes. This format creates a fun, low pressure environment to play and learn together! There’s lots of fun on the course and in the clubhouse for the whole family.

How do you play team golf?

The format of play is called Ambrose and we play it as a team.
1. Start each hole by playing off our shortened course, all players take it in turns to hit their first shot and the best positioned ball is selected.
2.This is one shot for scoring purposes. The other players pick up their ball and all players continue to play their next shot from the best positioned ball.
3.Continue this process until the ball is in the hole. Simple!
Pick a cool team name and off you go!
We encourage caregivers to join players on course*

All abilities welcome, payment on the day.

Full details from the manager, Ben Atherton,  09 436 2246 
The Pines is an eighteen hole course with a par of 71 and a 'slope rating' of 116 (medium degree of difficulty). It is not a long course, measuring 5368 metres off the men's blue tees. It does however present players of all abilities with many interesting hole locations and challenges with its meandering stream, tidal ponds, seaside mangroves and tree-studded fairways. 
The front nine is set back from Parua Bay and includes the more undulating holes. The back nine is played on the flatter part of the course and at times you really are "at the water's edge", with the sea marking the boundary to the course.
Driving range situated between the 10th and 17th fairways.
Licensed bar open daily.
Club and cart hire both available.
