Our Ambition for Women and Girls

Like Golf New Zealand, Pupuke acknowledges that there are challenges for women and girls in golf and that gender equity measures, alongside a robust and cohesive plan, are needed to close the gender gap.

Golf New Zealand has launched a strategy for women and girls called Our Ambition. 

Our Ambition aims to inspire the whole golf sector to be collectively responsible for outcomes that will contribute towards a more inclusive culture for women and girls in golf.

At Pupuke, we support this tenfold.


She Loves Golf

What is She Loves Golf? 

As part of Golf New Zealand's Ambition for Women & Girls, She Loves Golf is about creating enjoyable and social experiences for women of all ages to inspire a love for golf. 

It's about letting women know that golf isn’t the stuffy and elitist sport that it is often stereotyped as, it’s an ageless activity, with so many ways to play. You can be active and hang out with your friends at the same time, you can meet new people, and you can play as many holes as you like and you don't even have to keep score! 

There are events, promotions and opportunities to learn and play at Pupuke, all tailored especially for women. Keep an eye out in our upcoming events for our next programmes.

We currently boast New Zealand's BIGGEST She Loves Golf programme!

With over 230 ladies learning to play golf every Tuesday evening over Summer, we have 7 coaches dedicated to coaching women.

Times: Tuesday nights during daylight savings – 5pm, 6pm or 7pm session

Chip & Sip is a fun summer version of She Loves Golf. These are learn-to-play sessions for complete beginners or for those who are a little more experienced. We have ladies repeating these courses over and over because – 1. practice makes perfect – and 2. they’re just so fun and social! These are the most unintimidating environments you will get to learn.
With 8 coaches, we are able to accommodate up to 220 ladies in one evening. Our summer courses come with a FREE alcoholic beverage and a fun social gathering after each session where each group comes together to have a yarn and a sip (or two). 
On the last session we all enjoy cheese platters and a mini prize giving for participation. All our programmes come with Spot Prizes which are given out at the prize giving (these nights are the best and may or may not feature some World Famous in New Zealand ladies.


Every Tuesday night in Summer from 5pm you can jump on the front 9 and play as many holes as you like before it get’s too dark!

Cost: FREE

On Sundays we will block off a few tee spots for She Loves Golfers to play as many holes as you like. Please book at so we know how many to expect each week.

Cost: $15
