New management, business as usual for Chamberlain Park Golf

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 secure.
“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.

Gordon Campbell: On The Government’s Smokefree Laws Debacle

The most charitable explanation for National’s behaviour over the smokefree legislation is that they have dutifully fulfilled the wishes of the Big Tobacco lobby and then cast around for excuses that might sell this health policy U-turn to the public. The less charitable view is that the government was being deliberately misleading. Are we to think Prime Minister Christopher Luxon is a fool or a liar? It seems rather early on in his term of office to be facing that unpleasant choice... More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
