Wood moves on to Pro Shop at PNGC


On November 23rd I will be leaving my role with Manawatu Wanganui Golf to take over the Professional Shop at Palmerston North Golf Club.

I have had a great 5 ½ years with Manawatu Wanganui Golf. Initially employed to look mainly after junior golf and junior academies and it was not long before we started seeing success with the 2009 Junior Interprovincial title. With this success came the need to continue  building systems that would allow these players to win at senior level. My role evolved to encompass all Men’s Representative Golf and this success was achieved with the Southland Invitational win in March along with having three players in the NZ Golf Squads in 2012 and in the last few months our district players dominating NZ OOM events.

Manawatu Wanganui Golf now have a fully sustainable structure in place to cater for golfers of all levels, from junior club programmes, the successful JTS, the new Junior Pennant, Eagles Academy, Development Rep Teams, Junior OOM, Junior Academy, Junior Rep Teams, Senior and Masters OOM’s, Mens Interclub, Senior Academies and Senior Rep Teams.

It has been a privilege to assists and work alongside so many passionate golfers based in our district clubs. I wish you all the best for the future years and look forward to seeing many of you as you pass through Palmerston North Golf Club.
