New Zealander Chen Gau bought the 90-hectare country club and will be its fifth owner. The club, which boasts world top amateur golfer Lydia Ko as a member, will lease the facility from Gau for the foresee- able future, club deputy chairman Doug Godfrey says. It s a fair price. We have been working on the sale agreement for some time. We are really pleased, Mr Godfrey says. Mrs Gau has bought it as an investment. It all works and the members approved the sale unanimously. Mr Godfrey says the sale reflects the consider- able amount of invest- ment being put into the Hibiscus Coast s develop- ment. People living at Gulf Harbour have some great facilities at their doorstep, he says. The golf course is ran- ked among New Zea- land s top six. It would cost $30m to build the facility [country club and golf course] now, Mr God- frey says. Membership is increasing and the club has 100 junior players. New Zealand Women s Golf Open champion Lydia Ko, 15, of Albany officially confirmed it as her home club last year. It is also the home club for golfer Michael Hendry, who won the New Zealand PGA Championship in 2012. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr and opened in 1997. The club hosted the 1998 World Cup of Golf. Churches to celebrate The Presbyterian and Anglican churches at Castor Bay on the corner of Katui and Seaview roads have been sold and there will be an open afternoon to celebrate 80 years of worship and ser- vice. Between 1pm and 4pm on March 16, people who have had any association with the church centre are welcome to attend, share memories, view photos, meet others and reminisce. Speeches and cake cutting will be at 3pm. Contact Raewyn Henderson on 410 4423 for further information.
