New Zealand Golf Association (Inc.)

The New Zealand Golf Association has its headquarters in Wellington. Its membership comprises 15 district associations, each administering the game within its respective territory. These district associations are represented at all general meetings of the national body. Between annual general meetings of the association the game is administered by a council of 14, nine of whom are elected in their respective areas by the district associations concerned, the remaining five being elected at large by the general meeting. The council meets at least four times a year and between these meetings routine business is handled by a management committee (comprising six councillors) which meets every month.
