    The Board of Management at all times reserves the right to grant or revoke permission to use a motorcycle, golf cart or other forms of motorised transport on the Pakuranga Golf Club course. At all times users must comply with the “Terms and Conditions” set down in conjunction with the policy.
    No visitor can bring ride-on motorised transport on the course.
     
    Note:
    Carts may be used by players and their caddies for all Club events with the exception of Championship competitions, when a medical certificate not more than 3 months old must be produced to the General Manager or the Golf Captain prior to the event. Notwithstanding the above rule, members with a certificated, long term medical condition are exempt but need their certificate renewal every 5 years.
    All players must give way to Greens Staff while course maintenance is being carried out. No approach shot shall be in the proximity of where staff is working, unless the players are signalled through, or the flag on the green is replaced by the course staff.
    It is a condition of the “On Licence” granted to the Club, that the membership card is carried by members at all times while on the Club premises. Membership cards are also required to be shown on demand on the golf course and for green fee concessions.
    This necessitates the player ensures the return of ALL cards regardless of where the round is played and that they will post every acceptable round for peer review. Cards are generated automatically at the Pro Shop after a player has entered his/her member ID number. Visitors to the Club can only access a scorecard from the Pro Shop.
    All players must print a scorecard.
     
    This is a health and safety regulation that the golf club has been required to put in place and is a requirement of all golfers entering the facility to register with the Proshop and print a card before teeing off.
    Players are required to register for their tee time a minimum of 15 minutes prior. Any player who fails to do so or do not inform the Proshop they are running late may have their tee booking cancelled.
    If a member wishes to play golf outside the time limitations of their membership category, they will be required to pay the following fee.
     
    9 holes - $20*
    18 holes - $35*
     
    *These fees are subject to change and can be done so by the board of management at any time.
    Practising on the course is prohibited but a practise round may be played with no more than two balls.
    These must be put in writing and forwarded to the General Manager. They will be referred to the appropriate person or committee for action.
     
    No Member shall reprimand any employee or member of the Club.
    Balls must not be purchased from any unauthorised person on or in the vicinity of the course. The sole right for the sale of golf balls is given to the Club Professional or, in his absence, to the General Manager.
    Trespassers are prohibited and enter the Club’s property at their own risk. Club members are requested to warn off the course any unauthorised persons.
    The Club has a siren to signal to players regarding the above. One prolonged blast on the siren will indicate that play is to be suspended and two prolonged blasts will indicate that play is to resume. Three short blasts indicate postponement of play and players should return to the Clubhouse where the duration of the delay will be announced. Two prolonged blasts will indicate the resumption of play. In the event of abandonment three prolonged blasts will be sounded and play will not resume again that day. Players must ascertain restart requirements before leaving the course that day. At any stoppage a player who wishes to lift their ball, rather than complete play of the hole, should first mark its position by triangulation and agree the procedure with their opponent or marker.
    Purpose: To celebrate a player achieving a hole in one during a round of golf.
     
    Pakuranga Golf Club Members
    For a club member who hits a hole in one during a stipulated round, the following applies.
    1. For a hole in one to count, it must be scored during a stipulated round. The stipulated round in 9-hole golf competitions is 9 holes. In all other circumstances it is 18 holes. The round must be played with a marker, who must complete and sign the scorecard along with the player. The hole in one must also be achieved at a golf course that is affiliated to NZG and is more than 4500m in length.
    2. The office or a Club official must be notified of the event as soon as practical after the completion of the round
    3. The ball used is to be handed to the office for mounting purposes, along with the scorecard confirming the hole it was achieved on, and club used. The club will supply the mounted and engraved trophy.
    4. The club will apply a $35 credit to the members hospitality account and happy hour pricing will be run in the bar for a period of 1 hour or until the player leaves the clubhouse, whichever occurs first.
    5. If the round is completed outside the advertised hours of the club bar, the club will apply a $35 credit to the members hospitality account and supply a mounted and engraved trophy provided this is brought to the attention of the office within 7 days.
    6. If a hole in one is achieved at another golf club the club will apply a $35 credit to the members hospitality account and supply a mounted and engraved trophy, provided this is brought to the attention of the office within 7 days.
    The rules of the Club provide that no member shall be eligible to participate in any competition if any part of their subscription remains overdue (except those who have arranged weekly or monthly payment). The eligibility of a member to participate in any event is determined by their membership category as at the first day of the competition.
     
    Players are responsible for playing off their correct Handicap Index and Course Handicap. Failure to do so will result in disqualification from the competition.
     
    For competition events of 18 holes or more an 18-hole Index is required to be held by the player.
     
    All competition cards are to be entered into the DOTGOLF system or as otherwise directed by the event organizer, immediately on completion of a round. Players are responsible for recording the gross score on each hole. All cards must be signed by the player and marker. Incorrect, illegible or incomplete scorecards will be disqualified.
    We understand in today’s modern age it is important to stay connected, therefore the use of mobile phones on the course and in the clubhouse is permitted. Please be courteous when doing so, if your use of a mobile phone is interfering with another person’s experience then you will be asked to refrain from using it.
     
    The use of mobile phones in club competitions is prohibited as this is against the rules of golf. In any club competition the penalty for using your phone is loss of hole in match play or a two-stroke penalty in stroke play.
    Distance measuring devices that are used for the sole purpose of measuring distance only are allowed in club and Auckland Golf competition play.
    The Club has adopted the Pace of Play rules of the Auckland Golf Incorporated to apply to all competitions.
     
    The per-shot time limits for all players are as follows:
    1. For the first player to play from the tee, fairway or on the green – 45 seconds.
    2. For subsequent players in the group – 30 seconds.
     
    Pace of play times are displayed on your individual scorecards, these represent an acceptable pace of play and you are expected to maintain this pace.
     
    Your place in the field is immediately behind the group in front, not in front of the group behind.
