UPDATED VACCINATION POLICY
(posted 14 Dec 2021)
Tasman Golf Club introduced it's new vaccination policy on 1 Dec 2021. Since that time Golf NZ have released guidelines for the golf sector to operate in the traffic light system. You can read those details here The Tasman Golf Club committee also met over the weekend to review the club's policy after 2 weeks with it in operation.
As a result, the following amendments (noted in bold) will be made to The Tasman Golf Club's vaccination policy - effective immediately:
The committee of The Tasman Golf Club have taken the decision to review the club's Vaccination Policy to apply to everyone (apart from those with a medical exemption authorised by the NZ Director of Health) entering our clubhouse facility and deck area.
The revised vaccination policy now requires that:
- before entering the clubhouse or the deck (which forms part of our licensed hospitality area) all staff, members, guests and visitors aged 12 yrs & over must provide satisfactory evidence of having the full government-approved vaccination. This evidence can be the electronic 'My Vaccine Pass' or a scan, photograph or hardcopy of your Covid-19 Vaccine Pass. The pass can be emailed (from your own email address) to the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org . Or you can produce your vaccination evidence at the clubhouse.
- to enter in any one of our 4 main weekly club competitions (Tues, Wed, Twilight & Sat) a valid Vaccine Pass must be provided
- all entries for the above competitions are to be taken via the window in the office and Vaccine Passes sighted & noted by the event controller
- face masks are encouraged for patrons within the clubhouse, unless they are eating or drinking
- all players are responsible for scanning the QR code (or manually signing in) every time they play. This is to better support speedy contact tracing if/when that becomes necessary
Please note: Vaccine Passes are not required for members & green fee players who wish to play at their leisure, but valid passes are necessary to use our clubhouse or deck facility.
For your peace of mind we can confirm that both our clubhouse employees are fully vaccinated and have done so voluntarily. The clubhouse toilets will be accessed only through the clubhouse, with external doors locked (so these toilets are only available for use by people who have evidenced vaccination). The outside toilet will remain open, primarily for members, green fee players and grounds staff to use after-hours. Walkers/cyclists may also use this toilet. This toilet and the grounds of the golf course will be publicly accessible and not subject to any evidence of vaccination.
Thanks for your understanding as we continue to navigate our way through these un-chartered waters. Our aim is to provide a safe playing & working environment and also continue to be an inclusive club that supports our members, visiting golfers and our local community. This policy will be under constant review.

RYDER CUP WIN
(posted 29 Nov 2021)
With the August COVID lockdown seeing a change to the programme, we competed to retain the “Ryder Cup” held annually between Tasman and Totaradale on the weekend of 27th & 28th of November.
With home advantage to Totaradale, good results from the Tasman Team saw 3 wins apiece for Tasman and Totaradale, with the last match halved in front of the clubhouse where Tasman snatched a draw from certain victory after a 4 putt loss of hole. So into the afternoon with the score 3 ½ to 3 ½. The afternoon saw Tasman dominating most of the best ball matches winning the afternoon 4 ½ to 2 ½ taking a somewhat unexpected 8 to 6 lead overnight.
Sunday saw drizzle early, but in the individual match play saw total dominance from the Tasman team. For the first time in history*, Tasman did not lose an individuals match. 13 wins and 3 draws for a Sunday total of 14 ½ to 1 ½, saw Tasman cruise home 22 ½ to 7 ½.
Congratulations to the Tasman team. That is 4 wins in a row.
*Perhaps - I have no idea if this is true.

9-HOLE LADIES WIN BEST OF THE BEST
(report posted Sat, 23 Oct 2021)
Earlier this week, the Tasman women participated in the 9 hole Best of the Best competition, which is a regional event equivalent to the 18 hole Champion of Champions. This was held in Marlborough at Fairhall golf club.
The Team consisted of Lyndal McMeeking, winner of our A grade championship, Jill Gillan, runner up and Dawn Carter, our most improved player. I myself joined the group as Team Manager / Caddie and off course 'FOMO'. ( for those who are not up to date with this term, it means 'fear of missing out').
On the Monday afternoon, we were able to have a practice round, and when we got to number 5 hole, a Par 3, Lyndal was the first to hit off, we watched her hit a very nice shot which landed on the green and then unbelievably went into the hole!! As you can imagine we were extremely excited, it was a wonder you didn't
hear us back in Tasman. We were just so thrilled for Lyndal and I am sure you will all join us in
But wait there is more.......so on Tuesday, the day of the competition, Jill and Lyndal played in the A grade division and Dawn was in the Most Improved Player division. When it came to the Prize giving, we were all delighted to hear that Jill had won the A grade best gross, and the overall trophy top prize, for best gross over the 2 Divisions. Dawn was the winner of the Most Improved Player, for the whole region, and then just to top things off Tasman was the winner of the Team event, this was the best combined stablefords.
So how amazing is all that, for such a small club with a very small number of women members, it was
a very proud moment!
Thank you to Tasman Golf Club, in supporting us to partake in the competition.
Pam Robert, Team Manager
