Welcome to 2021!
Welcome back to all retail and supplier members for what promises to be a year of recovery and growth.
NZACS is planning a busy year, kicking off with our annual golf day and featuring our bi-annual C&I Expo and Leaders’ summit in September.
We will continue to actively represent our channels interest in both the media and to government as we tackle whatever challenges come our way.
I am particularly proud of the tremendously important role our members played in response to the pandemic last year and the wins we achieved through active representation to government around vaping legislation. If you are in any doubt as to the importance of unified representation on important categories refer to the latest information out of Australia restricting vape products to a doctor’s prescription from October.

Golf Day 2021
Register now for Thursday, March 18th
NZACS scholarship fundraiser
Each year the association challenges young people in convenience to enter the Peter Jowett scholarship focussing on relevant innovation within the channel. This year we are looking to raise $8000 to fund the two scholarship prizes. This is a fantastic scholarship that NZACS has supported exclusively for the last 16 or more years which has enriched the lives and careers of our many winners and participants.
Everyone is Welcome – let’s fill the field.
Last year we had 58 players across the three options – 18hole – 9 Hole & Bubbles & Bash. This year we are aiming to get 100! Around 30% of all playing fees support the fundraising.
Participation is open to past, present, and prospective members of NZACS. In addition, feel free to invite retailers, colleagues, or business partners. We have the whole course booked for the day so want to fill all available slots.
For Golfers – Takapuna location
We are playing again at Takapuna – just off the motorway over the bridge at Northcote. This is a much more user-friendly course for 9 & 18 hole golfers – a flatter track that lends itself to a more relaxing afternoon. We will have the course exclusively.
Takapuna Golf Course, 27 Northcote Road, Hillcrest. Click here to check out the course.
Sponsors – prizes, holes and product sponsorships:
We are looking for prize and Hole sponsorships. You could sponsor a hole and/or provide prizes for our competition holes. We have a prize sponsorship option this year from which the funds will be used to purchase quality prizes. We would also like to make samples of products such as drinks and snacks available to players before Tee off and during the tournament.
If you wish to discuss options please call Dave on 027 471 9366 or email [email protected]
Tournament format is Ambrose – please remember to enter your handicap if you have one as we team up the players based on their handicap and the company they are from.
Non-registered players – Max men’s handicap 24 Max women’s handicap 36
For prospective golfers – Bubbles & Bash
For those of you that may wish to come later in the day. Hit a few balls on the driving range under expert tuition from one or two of the club pros.
No pressure, just some fun with a few like-minded folks and some tips if you need them. Loosen up with a couple of glasses of bubbles followed by drinks and a light dinner in the clubhouse afterward…
