Club Management
Club Management
The Pukekohe Golf Club is managed by the members through a Board of Directors who look after governance and a Golf Committee who manage the golf programme, rules and all other issues associated with the playing of golf.
The Club Manager looks after all of the day-to-day running of the golf club with permanent and casual staff in the office, course and cafe. This is done under the objectives set out in our 5-Year Strategic Plan and the annual Business Plan and budget. The ProShop is run under contract but the Head Professional reports to the Club Manager. The golf course is maintained by the Course Manager with a 2IC, a qualified green keeper and a labourer. An apprentice is usually involved as well.
Board of Directors
The overall direction of the golf club is the responsibility of the Board, which is made up of the President, a Treasurer and three Board members. The Club Manager attends Board meetings to report and has speaking but not voting rights.
The Board sets the long-term plan for the future of the golf club, to grow it and help ensure it becomes an integral part of the community. This is done via the 5-Year Strategic Plan for the Club Manager to operate under and for setting the club budgets, subscription levels, authorising major payments and investing spare funds from time to time. 
Golf Committee
The golf committee is made up of the men’s and women’s Captains and Vice Captains, the club's PGA pro and the 9-Hole Section Convenor. Invited guests include the Course Manager, a Seniors representative and the Club Manager.
This committee sets out the golf playing program and is concerned with the golf competitions within the club and the selection of club teams to represent the club in interclub golf matches.
It also manages all rules and playing disputes on the golf course and recommends any changes to the golf course layout to the Board of Directors. 

NB: Current committee members are listed at the bottom of this page.
