Grange to maintain facilities, release surplus land

The Board of The Grange Golf Club (Inc ) has gone to the market and is inviting developers to come up with a scheme that will ensure that the Club maintains its course and clubhouse facilities in Papatoetoe, and at the same time releases surplus land for sale .

The funds realised from the sale will be applied to course improvements , and the retirement of debt.

The Board Chairman, Rob Chemaly, said " this is a fantastic opportunity to future-proof our golf course. The Club has a history of providing one of the best golf courses in the country, and we want to make sure that is retained "

The Grange has hosted five New Zealand Opens, the most recent being in 2004. Winners of these events include New Zealanders Sir Bob Charles and David Smail, and Australians Rodger Davis, Peter O'Malley and Terry Price.

Rob Chemaly went on to say that the Club was proud of its achievements, but could not afford to stand still. "The golf scene continues to evolve, and pressure is on Clubs like ours to ensure that we continue to attract and retain members, and this can only be achieved if we provide a golf experience of the very highest standard."

"It is our intention that, when the project is complete, it will be an enduring legacy that will make The Grange "the Club of Choice" in Auckland."
