About Us

Golf Northland Inc promotes and administers golf for the members of 22 clubs from New Zealands northern most club Houhora to Tapora in the south.

There is a long history of golf in Northland with the oldest clubs being Northern Wairoa and Whangarei, both founded in 1907.

Centralised administration began when The Northland Golf Association was incorporated in January 1951, followed by the Northland Ladies Golf Association in 1954.  The two Associations amalgamated in March 2006 to form Golf Northland.

Golf Northland is administered by a six member Executive Board , a Mens Committee and a Ladies Committee , details of which are located within the Executive Board tab on this website.

We have a very active Executive Officer, Mr Sean Doel, who will also be completing most key roles as the Golf Development Manager and he looks forward to working with and encouraging all current and potential Northland golfers. His work and contribution to Junior Golf is invaluable for the future of this sport in our province. Sean can be contacted by email at admin@golfnorthland.co.nz or on his mobile 0210747151

An important initiative in Northland has been the establishment of SNAG (Starting New At Golf) , that is run within many of our schools , this programme has specialist coaches who are very enthusiastic and look forward to making a difference with Golf in Northland and across the country. 

As always , we wish to extend our sincere thanks to all those persons and parties that actively contribute to making golf in Northland a wonderful success for all those involved in this great game of Golf !
