2018 Pukekohe
2018 Nationals Pukekohe Golf Club Sunday November 11th to Tuesday 13th

The Pukekohe Golf Club is confirmed as our Host Club for the 2018 Nationals.
Due to the V8 Supercars being held on the first weekend of the month our usual event dates have been moved back a week to allow us to obtain the necessary accommodation in the Pukekohe area.

This will not affect what will be another fantastic week of golf at one of New Zealand’s top provincial golf courses.

The Pukekohe Golf Club is situated approximately 25 minutes from Auckland Central and 5 minutes from the farming and horticultural township of Pukekohe.
The Auckland Association look forward to holding what will be a unique weekend of golf and festivities that we are sure all the attending Associations and Sponsors will enjoy.

A full outline of the 2018 event will be posted here in due course.
