Our Story

The Whā Cup is comprised of four social clubs

  • Caddy Bach

  • Get Gooder Golf (GGG)

  • Hongi the Pin (HTP)

  • Wairua Golf Club
    After many rounds played with individuals from each club, an idea was formed to bring all members together for a kaupapa. The like mindedness of members meant we could create a day with Māori values at the forefront. Manaakitanaga, Whakawhanaungatanga and Pārekareka. After a couple of hui a date was set, a host club was decided and format set, what you see below (video) is just a snippet of the day.

How does it work?

Nama whā features a lot within the Whā Cup. Each club is given a season (4 rounds a year) to host their day, and must decide the date, venue to be played, format and provide a venue for the after function. The Whā Cup has 4 Divisions:

  • Tōtara - +1.0 - 8.0

  • Kauri - 8.1 - 13.0

  • Rimu - 13.1 - 18

  • Kōwhai - 18.1+
