Final Milestone in Golf Amalgamation Achieved
The Joint Board Committee of menâ€™s and womenâ€™s golf took a major step towards finalising the amalgamation of the two organisations when they signed off the final draft of the joint Constitution.
Chairman of Womens Golf New Zealand, Patsy Hankins, said, â€œThis is a major milestone for us. We have been very pleased with the way the process has been handled; both organisations were given the time to seek feedback from their members. The feedback received was extremely helpful and constructive and we have been able to incorporate many of the points raised in the final Constitution. It gives us the confidence that we have a good base to work fromâ€�.
The signing off of the Constitution was the final action needed before the amalgamation is tabled at the special general meetings of both organisations which are to be held in Wellington on September 12th.
Larry Graham, Chief Executive of New Zealand Golf is looking forward to formalising the amalgamation. â€œThe staff of womenâ€™s and menâ€™s golf have been working from our new premises since May 27th and it has been an exciting time for all of us. We are very pleased with the direction that our organisations are taking and we intend to ensure that the efficiencies gained by this amalgamation will ensure that all of our stakeholders benefit.â€�
Graham said that all that remains is for the constitution to be tabled at respective Council meetings followed by special general meetings to complete the legal process.
Michael Campbell visits Womens Golf NZ & NZGA
New Zealand Golf was the beneficiary of an unexpected $10,000 windfall from the US Open champion Michael Campbell.
Campbell presented a cheque to New Zealand Golf at a function in Wellington to be used for junior golf development. The cheque was from AMP, his first corporate sponsor when he turned professional 12 years ago.
Campbellâ€™s remarkable success at Pinehurst in the US Open two months ago prompted the company to locate his original contract in 1993. They found that the sponsorship contract specified that if Campbell ever won the US Open they would give him a $10,000 bonus.
In turn Campbell handed it over to New Zealand Golf Chief Executive Larry Graham to use for junior golf development. Campbell gives away all his earnings in New Zealand, split between New Zealand Golfâ€™s junior programme and Ronald McDonald House.
