PGA of NZ to relocate headquarters to North Shore Golf Club
The PGA (Professional Golfers' Association) of NZ has announced that from 1st August 2020 it will be based at Auckland’s North Shore Golf Club, relocating from the Remuera Golf Club, its home since 2018.
Advising that the move to Albany is largely due to the organisation's growth and need for increased office space, PGA of NZ General Manager, Dominic Sainsbury stated "Remuera Golf Club was a fantastic place to call home, and we'll miss our daily interaction with the club's staff and players.
“However, we're looking forward to forging new relationships at North Shore, which we see as a progressive club with a strong community focus."
With a high regard for the team and facilities at the North Shore Golf Club, Sainsbury noted “we've already hosted a number of PGA workshops at NSGC over the years, the most recent being the Brad Kennedy ‘Project One Putt’ workshop in March."
NSGC General Manager, Rowland Griffiths added "the board and management are proud to welcome the PGA of NZ to their new home. Our club is constantly looking at ways to diversify and grow. We also have a strong commitment to nurturing the next generation of players, which is a goal shared by the PGA of NZ."
As well as boosting the overall profile of NSGC, the PGA's move brings tangible benefits for the club's staff and members. It will be easy for them to attend PGA events, such as seminars and workshops, and the introduction of a PGA training facility will provide top level equipment for teaching, club repair and club fitting.
Rowland advises "our own events will be enhanced with direct access to PGA staff and being able to tap into their knowledge and experience should help us further improve our day-to-day operations."
For the past 10 years, the PGA of NZ has worked closely with NZ Golf on a number of successful tournaments and initiatives. To help this rewarding relationship continue, a hot desk is available for any NZ Golf staff member who wishes to work from the new PGA office in Appleby Road.
The PGA of NZ is the largest vocational golf members association in the country and is dedicated to promoting the game and enhancing the standards of the profession.
