NZ PGA Championships at Remuera Golf Course – Request to Residents

21 February 2016

We have received a request from the Remuera Golf Club, who are hosting the New Zealand PGA Championships on 2-6 March. They would like to be able to prepare the course from 6am, instead of 7am as current noise restrictions allow.

If you live near the golf club and have any specific concerns, please contact Spencer Cooper, Course Superintendent, Remuera Golf Club on 021 229 8550 or .

Dear Neighbours,

We hope you are well and enjoying the great summer we are having?

As you have probably heard and seen recently, Remuera Golf Club will once again be hosting the New Zealand PGA Championships from 2-6 March 2016 (with the Pro-Am event on 2 March) which is part of and organized by the Australasian Tour. This a very exciting event not only for the club but for Auckland and we are looking forward to building on last year’s successful tournament. (

In fact, the tournament has been so well received and due to this huge interest we will have to make use of every minute of daylight during the tournament to prepare the course and still accommodate all the players.

With this in mind we find ourselves in the position of being restricted by Auckland Council Noise Pollution Laws to only start preparation of the course at 7am. We are committed to maintaining and building a strong relationship with all our neighbours but for 2, 3 and 4 March 2015 we would like to ask for some leeway and start our operations to prepare the course at 6 am.

We hope this request is agreeable with all our neighbours and together with you we look forward to putting on an event that our whole community can be proud of. Please notify me directly should you have any concerns? Please could you also share this with any of our neighbours not on this mailing list who might have concerns especially along Norman Lessor Drive, Allen Johnstone Place, Hoani Glade, Coldham Crescent, Charles Fox Place and Panapa Drive.

Kind Regards

Spencer Cooper
