The Opotiki Golf Club Centenary

November 2nd, 3rd and 4th of November, 2018.

The Opotiki Golf Club Centenary celebration held over the weekend (2-4 November) was a huge success, despite mother nature doing her best to intervene, an enjoyable weekend was had by all.  Congratulations to those that managed to snare a prize, but mostly well done to everyone for participating on this historic occasion.   The weekend was tremendous reward for all the planning and hard work put in by Club members. The Club wishes to thank all those that contributed, and especially to all our sponsors.    Also special thanks to all our visitors from out of town, some of whom had traveled a considerable distance.  The Friday evening meet and greet, included a social 9-hole warm up game, was well attended and set the stage for the weekend.  The Saturday 18-hole competition with a field of over 100 got underway with a shot gun start in rather gloomy weather, the first 9-holes a little wet and cold, but this did not seem to deter some good scoring (see Results page for best scores).   Prize giving followed prior to a more ‘formal’ dinner and entertainment evening.   Members, past and current, and associates of the Club provided some hilarious reminisces of past times over the Clubs colourful history, and these received much applaud.   Attendees toasted the Club for its next hundred years.  

For those that would like to know about the Clubs history, its development and significant events, a published centenary book is available from the Club. The Club also have for sale centennial shirts and caps, and other items.
