New management, business as usual for Chamberlain Park Golf Course
Management of Chamberlain Park Golf Course will change next month but golfers will see no change in service at the popular course.
Auckland Council’s lease with Auckland City Golf Course Limited for the operation of Chamberlain Park Golf Course ends on 30 June 2013. Council-owned City Parks Services will take over management from 1 July.
“Auckland City Golf Course Limited has operated Chamberlain Park Golf Course since 1996 and has provided Auckland golfers with excellent service at one of the region’s most popular courses,” says Sharon Rimmer, Manager Recreation Partnerships, Funding and Programmes.
“Continuity of service is extremely important to the Auckland Council and we will keep members and golf course users informed of any changes,” she says.
All current season passes and concession cards will be honoured and golfers should not be affected by the change in management. Green fees will remain the same.
Albert-Eden Local Board Deputy Chair Margi Watson
says the future of Chamberlain Park as a golf course is
“Albert Eden Local Board is aware how special this golf course is to locals and players from across Auckland. We see providing outstanding and accessible sporting and recreational opportunities for Aucklanders as one of our highest priorities.
“Recent rumours about turning the golf course into housing are simply untrue. We would like to reassure golfers and locals that this course will continue to operate as a popular public course,” she says.
Ms Rimmer says City Parks Services has staff experienced in managing golf courses and looks forward to working with the staff at Chamberlain Park, maintaining the course's popular reputation.
