The Club Management Committee organises and sponsors the following activities:

  Social Functions and Special Events

The Club organises many successful social functions for the enjoyment of members. Foremost amongst these are the Mid-Winter Luncheon and the End-of-Year Xmas Luncheon, greatly enjoyed by members and partners. The upstairs lounge of the Bowling Club has been a popular venue, with the downstairs ground-level lounge and meeting room used for the Club's mid-winter lunch.

The Club endeavours to maintain a programme of extraordinary events at approximately two-month intervals to visit places of interest or luncheon or dinner venues that are attractive to all members and their partners. Coordinated travel arrangements for these events are arranged by the Club if necessary.  

Details of upcoming functions and events are published in the monthly newsletter.


Enthusiastic member golfers play a 9-hole game at the Chamberlain Park Golf Course each Tuesday, and those of them who wish to, play the 9-hole par-3 course at Ellerslie Racecourse on a Thursday. Tuesday matches are preceded by the group lunching together. The Group organises a trip away for both players and partners to a suitable golf resort once a year where a play-off for annual trophies is held over two days.

 Walking Group

Popular with many members are the local walks taken by the group each second Saturday morning. These convenor-lead walks traverse different tracks, often dedicated pedestrian walkways along areas of scenic interest and beauty. A well-earned coffee rounds off the morning.
