Warkworth Golf Club’s new president Marie Claydon has swung into action with hopes of growing membership at the club this year.
Marie has been a member of the club for over a decade and was elected president at the AGM held in November last year.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to take the club to another level,” Marie says.
“Our membership has been stagnant for a while now so getting some growth is a focus of mine.”
To achieve this, the club has introduced nine-hole Twilight Golf starting on February 2.
Tee off for this will be on Fridays between 3pm and 5.30pm. Both members and non-members are welcome to attend.
“It’s a short and sweet alternative to 18-hole golf if you don’t have lots of time, and it’s good value for money.”
The club has also hired a new coach, Tony Mordaunt, to work with men, women and junior golfers.
Tony has worked extensively with schoolchildren in the area, across a number of sports, and is a registered Professional Golfer’s Association (PGA) coach.
“Tony will be organising coaching clinics and competition days for our juniors, so we’re looking forward to seeing how they develop with him,” Marie says.
“We are also looking at opportunities to take golf to the students at Mahurangi College.”
