The Golf Section has a Sunday Tournament
every month of the year except January.
Visitors are more than welcome to join us at
any of the tournaments. Green fees are kept
to a minimum, being only $15 and the
subscription to join the Golf Section is $10 yearly.

We cater for Golfers of all abilities, with
divisions from those on single figure handicaps
right through to intermediates, juniors, ladies
and a separate non-handicapped division.
Don’t forget the first law of Golf
- No matter how bad your last shot was,
the worst is yet to come. This law does not
expire on the 18th hole, since it has the
supernatural tendency to extend over the
course of a tournament, a summer and,
eventually, a lifetime. AGM date to be advised.

Papanui Paraders Leisure Marching Team was established in 2001. At present the team has 12 members but at times has had as many as 16 with many having been part of the team for over 5 years. As one team member said, she ‘joined marching to see NZ' and this has certainly happened with the team now entering events from Invercargill to Auckland & many places in-between. Fun, fitness and friendship is the motto for Leisure Marching and this is surely followed by much fun and many friendships made when the team has travelled. Fitness is taken care of with practice being held on Tuesdays at either Tullet Park or in the Bowling Club rooms.

The Leisure Time Section was established in 1986 and now has a membership of 80+ club members. The elected committee endeavours to put together a programme which offers a mix of guest speakers (covering a variety of interesting topics) and also subsidised coach trips to those ‘hidden’ places of interest throughout the Canterbury region - often including morning/afternoon tea or lunch. Our mid-winter and end-of-year lunches are always popular and very well supported. All Papanui club members are welcome to join.

Welcome everyone to Wine and Food 2021

We meet on the 2nd Monday night each month at 7.00 pm in the club bar. To belong to our section you need to be a member of the Papanui Club and then to join the Wine and Food Section it is $10 per person per year. Our format is one month a wine evening and the next month a food evening. We have been running for 10 years later this year which is quite astounding as we are still finding new wines and food to taste. We also still have many founding members attending each month as well. Even our committee has had hardly any changes!

Again we have had an unusual start to our year with the New Zealand Bowls tournament being held in the club in February, which meant with the buffet running each evening while it was on we were not able to access the club bar for our meeting.

We had our first evening for the year last Monday night with Jo coming from Pelorus Gold honey. This was a successful night with lots of honey sold and Jo is happy to take more orders once you finish what you have.
We took 2 busloads of members to Waipara Springs for our Christmas luncheon and the weather certainly played its part that day. They put on a lovely buffet lunch and Evana bought her ukulele and went around entertaining us while we tasted the great wines that they have.
We were meant to head to the North Canterbury Wine and Food festival in March but due to Covid that was postponed until next year which was a disappointment but understandable.

Our events for this year:

12.04.21 - Wines of the World
10.05.21 - Wairiri Buffalo cheese
14.06.21 - Tupari Wines
12.07.21 - What a Surprise! A fun evening with surprise tastings!
09.08.21 - Framingham Wines
13.09.21 - Two Raw Sisters
11.10.21 - Wine
08.11.21 - Hemp tasting
12.12.21 - Christmas function
