Gareth Morgan Buys Pauatahanui Golf Course

Gareth Morgan Buys Pauatahanui Golf Course

It is with a tinge of sadness that I can confirm the Pauatahanui Golf Club is no more but with a great deal of satisfaction I can announce the future of the Pauatahanui Golf Course is assured.

With the amalgamation of the Club with the Royal Wellington now confirmed, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Joanne and I have bought the course and are committed to keeping it as a golfing destination in the district. We intend to bring the course up to its full potential with fairways and greens that are the envy of Wellington’s golfing fraternity. And we intend to ensure that access to this most tranquil of golfing destinations remains open to the public. It has always been a place to enjoy for those who like playing the game but don’t want crowded fairways and officious club members stifling that pleasure. These values will be retained, and we will enhance the links to the local community via an enhanced programme of charity events.

We look forward to welcoming all those who see golf as fun and at the same time like to relax in uncrowded surroundings that champion the taonga of our native flora and fauna.

The Pauatahanui Golf Course has a very bright future and we thank all members of the Club who have built this community asset over the last 50 years. We very much look forward to welcoming all players to the course – politicians and cats being the only species not welcome !

Gareth and Joanne Morgan

To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality. What has been very odd so far about the coronavirus episode is that global share markets – normally spooked by mere sneezes or sniffles in the world’s major economies - have continued to be fairly positive, even as the epidemic has unfolded...
