Golf club volunteer fills many roles Giving time: Liz Pokia has done everything from helping in the kitchen to selecting interclub players in more than 17 years volunteering at Titahi Golf Club. By KRIS DANDO Nominated for award Liz Pokia was never really a fan of golf but since 1994 she has become a fixture at Titahi Golf Club. When I was a kid my dad played at Whitby but then he moved over to Titahi. In 1994, the same year dad won the club champs, I had time on my hands over summer and a friend said let s join . Along with playing, I started doing bits and pieces around the club and it s gone from there. Bits and pieces has evolved into stints as women s secretary, committee member, women s club captain and an interclub selector. She helps with fundraising, administration, setting up team sheets, putting out trophies and scrubbing the deck and helping in the kitchen if required. You would be amazed how many people it takes to run a Fri- day night up here. Pokia s unpaid roles saw her receive a nomination in the Good Sorts section of the Sport NZ Vol- unteer of the Year Awards, with winners announced last week. Pokia was the only shortlisted nominee from Porirua and although she didn t win, she was happy to be flying the flag for golf. There were plenty of people put forward for football, league, rugby and athletics, and I know there are fantastic volunteers in those sports, but it was good to be representing golf. Pokia says the young club mem- bers will be the next volunteers, learning what it takes to keep Titahi humming along. She is certainly not the only person who gives their time up at the club, making her nomination all the more humbling. People pitch in around here, we re a family. I was thinking recently that if every member gave one hour a year to this club, maybe I could put my feet up! New holes open for play next week Titahi Golf Club members will get the chance to play the course s two new holes next week, after an official opening ceremony. Course maintenance and development co-ordinator Tom Campbell says it has been a long time coming with he, son Michael and former club presi- dent Ken Douglas walking where the new 5th and 6th holes would be back in 1999. The committee gave the green light for the project last year, mustering nearly half the $70,000 cost through fundrais- ing. The architect plotted where they would go and we got aerial photographs and cut the grass right back. It really only took two weeks for the contractors to do it in January but we had to let the grass come through and water the greens properly. It s great -- all the old fullas have been say- ing hurry up and get it done before we disappear . The new holes meant a recon- figuration of the 9th/18th, which will now become a par 5 for men and par 4 for women. The old 8th green will be used for practice. Club president Lynell Huria says the project has been an excellent way to pull club mem- bers together. New Zealand Community Trust funded the bulk of the project. There will be an official open- ing on October 12, followed by a tournament the next day.
