Want to become a course rater or understand the process?

Phil Aickin, from Golf New Zealand, will be coming to the Manawatu Wanganui region on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th of May to run a course on course rating. Phil will hold the course at Palmerston North Golf Club.

The timing of the days are as follows:

Day 1 1-5pm Presentation on the process
Day 2 9.00am Fully re-rate Palmerston North GC

Could the clubs pass this on to any Greenkeepers, Club Staff, or any Club Members who are interested in becoming course raters? We aim to have multiple raters around the different regions of the Manawatu Wanganui District to make it easier for the raters to rate the courses closest to them.

For those interested, please contact Dayne Bulloch at
