Customer Feedback

On behalf of the Carbine Club of NZ, I sincerely thank the Pakuranga Golf Club for being such excellent hosts for our 2016 Charity Golf Day on Monday.

 We very much appreciated the generous assistance of everyone of your staff including Aime and her team with great food and the guys in your Pro Shop. Everyone at all times was most helpful. A  special thank you to Des, particularly following our Leap Year Day cancellation when the Fiji Cyclone flooding meant re-organising and rescheduling.

Whilst we have been pleased to receive generous positive feedback from those with us on Monday, most importantly the Sir Denis Blundell Trust will be benefiting with a significant amount allowing our Carbine Club to continue supporting young disabled athletes through grants distributed through Paralympics NZ & Parafed Auckland.

 Many thanks again for your support and for being part of the success of our 2016 Carbine Club Charity Golf Day.

Kind regards
Susie
Tournament Director Carbine Club Committee


Hi Helen

We will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Kind regards

Hi Des

I just wanted to take the opportunity of formally letting you know that Mum’s 90th birthday function was a wonderful success.  The Oak Room is a great venue for smallish occasions such as ours, the food was absolutely superb and the standard of service from the girls was excellent.  Please pass on our appreciation for the way Vino, Sam and Aayla carried out their duties.  They met every need that we and our guests required.  It was also a pleasure dealing with Helen and Aimee when arranging the event.  Nothing was too much trouble. 

We believe that the venue is a great value for the money and would certainly recommend it to friends and other members.

Thanks again
Lynda Stubbs

I really enjoyed my game on Tuesday, thanks to Des and the pro shop team for looking after me. The guys I played with were a great group. Having been a member in the 70, 80 and early 90’s and not playing there since I really noticed the improvements. It is a really nice course that the club can be proud of, I would best describe it as now being the course that as a member in the past, I had hoped it would become. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

“My sincere thanks for a superb job you all did in making our corporate golf day on Monday, such a success. I know some of our requests presented a challenge to you and Helen but you really came through on the day. Everyone had a wonderful day – you were all fantastic. Helen, the food was superb and everyone raved about the BBQ in the morning and the evening dinner. I’ve also received numerous emails since from our sponsors, congratulating us on the day.”

“I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to the Pakuranga Golf Club for facilitating the SNAG Golf programme at Mission Heights Junior College. The program, it’s delivery and the people involved were fantastic.

The Snag programme was an excellent experience for the students. They were exposed to a new sport in a very fun and engaging way. Golf has an unfair reputation of being closed and difficult to get into, however this program has definitely removed that myth from the thinking of our students. The equipment used in the program was very inviting and it even attracted staff to have a go at the sport that they would potentially never would have an opportunity to partake in. We look forward to using the donated equipment to introduce students the game of golf for many years to come.

The students attended 4 lessons; rolling (putting), chipping, and launching (driving). With in each lesson, the students were taught the correct stance and grip. At the 4th lesson, students had gained enough knowledge about hitting the ball to put their skills into action during a 9 hole game. It was by playing the game, that the students started to understand the idea of golf.

SNAG was a great opportunity for all children and even those who have not found their niche in sport, was able to participate and enjoy the game of golf. Golf is a life time sport and SNAG is a great way to broaden their horizons and whet their palate for the game. It was a fantastic opportunity for our school and on behalf of all of the PE teachers, we would like to thank Pakuranga Golf Club for this opportunity and to Todd, for the awesome delivery of the programme.”

I went into the kitchen and thanked them personally for their attention to detail, prompt and friendly service and delicious meal. Well done Restaurant team.

“On behalf of Half Moon Bay Rotary I would like to express our appreciation to you and your staff for assisting us to have a very successful and enjoyable Tournament and Auction day last Monday the 14th November.

Our pre-tournament meetings with you and the caterers set expectations for high standards and these were certainly met.  The tables were laid out well and our auction and prize benefited from this.  The food was tasty and there was plenty available.  Please express our compliments to Lucy, your chef and the catering staff for a job well done.

Special thanks  to Sam Thomas for his service especially the Pro-drive which was something different for our tournament as well as being an additional fund raiser.

We look forward to a great day again next year.”
