Futures Event
Hikurangi 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.

Hikurangi Golf Club
The Hikurangi Golf Club celebrated its 75th Jubilee in 2015. The club started as the Whakapara Golf Club in 1940 as a nine hole course at McLennan Road and then had two more shifts, firstly to the Russell Road and then to Puhipuhi Road before moving to the present site in 1958.  Initially as a 12 hole course, then 15 holes and finally 18 holes in the late 1960's.
Situated just 4 km from the centre of Hikurangi township and 20 minutes north of Whangarei the course is an integral part of the Northland Golf community.
The club hosts many activities for the local community with our major event being our annual Daffodil Day event which to date has raised over $200,000 for the Cancer Society.
With less than 100 members, the course is generally always open for visitors and there is a good chance you will be the only on on the course.
Green Fees are $20 with half price deals on Wednesday and Friday. An honesty box system is used when the clubhouse is not open.
Carts are available for hire but must be booked. 
The Hikurangi Golf Course comprises 18 holes with a par of 70.  Set on rolling country the course layout uses the natural contours to provide a challenge to all levels of golf. Greens are small and soil based with a number having elevated approaches.  At 5256 metres off the blue tees for men, it is not a long course but each hole has its unique challenge that makes it play harder than one would assume.  Course record is 66 set by Alex Tait in 2008.
Set in the midst of farms and lifestyle blocks, the course has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside 
A relatively new clubhouse with bar facilities and caterers on site for club events or fixtures.  The clubhouse is not open on a day-to-day basis but toilet and shower facilities are available at all times.
Visiting players with Motorhomes are able to stay overnight with prior approval.
