NZIOB PlaceMakers Northern Region Golf Day

News from the


The annual NZIOB PlaceMakers Northern Region Golf Day was held in Auckland on Friday, 15 February. Despite warnings of cyclones, torrential rain, and gale force winds, everyone was delighted to wake up to a cloudless blue sky and sunshine. Teams started arriving at 10:30am and got straight into it, starting with the Putting Competition, followed by a quick lunch, then out onto the course for a 12:30pm shotgun start. Teams made their way around the course, enjoying the sponsor activities at various holes. 

All-in-all, another great golf day was enjoyed by all who participated, and the Pakuranga Golf Club has been booked again for next year’s event. Thank you to everyone involved in the event and for your continued support every year. We hope to see you all again in 2023.
