Winter Warmer Special from Manor Park
Manor Park Golf Sanctuary offers a great quality facility for true golfers of all levels of ability and skill.
The flat, but challenging A-grade course offers a wide range of lengths and rates for various skill levels. There is also a golf beginner’s programme that runs over 6 weeks utilising both classroom and course facilities.
Fairway watering provides a superb playing surface during hot and dry periods, but the course is well- drained during periods of heavy or prolonged rain.
Manor Park has seen many golfing professionals playing on the grounds including 2005 US Open winner Michael Campbell, Stephen Scahill, Gareth Paddison, Marcus Wheelhouse, Reon Sayer and Lynette Godleman (nee Brooky).
This is the only club in New Zealand to be a certified sanctuary with Audubon International. It follows “green” principles in both course management/maintenance and in the off-course facilities such as the washrooms, cafes and bars and in the office.
A dial up membership fee structure by age to allows membership by younger parents and those embarking on careers (up to 40 years). There is also a well-stocked golf shop for all of your golfing needs.
You may have heard of the Junior Kiwi golfing programme, this was introduced into New Zealand by Manor Park and they have a strong on-going junior development programme. The club is home to some of the young regional and national golf prodigies of the present day such as Daniel Hillier, Julianne Alvarez and Gabrielle Palado.
There is a great fellowship across a large number of organised groups, for example:
• Seniors (playing Tuesday and Thursday),
• Ladies 9 hole (Monday, Wednesday and weekends),
• Ladies 18 hole (Wednesday and Saturday),
• Taxis (Tuesday)
• Thursday Club,
• Ladies and men’s interclub teams.
With a three-tier professional golf coaching team (Ian Godleman, Lynette Godleman and Bruce Farmer) and some of the best coaching (including “Trackman” technology) and practice facilities in the greater Wellington region, Manor Park Golf Club is the place to get your golfing fix!
