Golf Club Salutes ANZACs

Thanks to Jack Martin Senior of Te Mata, the Raglan Golf Club has its own special  Anzac Cenotaph to commemorate Anzac Day.

It is situated on the side of the 18th green amongst Pine Trees grown from seed of the Lone Pine tree which gave its name to LONE PINE RIDGE, famous in the Gallipoli Campaign.This area was bravely fought over between New Zealand and Australian troops in 1915. Jack brought the seeds back to NZ, donated them to the RSA who then passed them on to the club. The club then planted them out.

These tall pines now add a picturesque landscape as golfers play up the 18th fairway and remind us of the sacrifices men and women made for their country.

Lest We Forget.

Off the Tee. Peter Aim.
