The Marketing Association is hosting the Keith Norris Charity Golf event at Royal Auckland and Grange Golf Club, one of New Zealand's most exclusive members-only golf courses. For the third year running, proceeds of our event will  benefit Melanoma New Zealand -  the only charity in New Zealand solely championing the prevention, detection, and the treatment of melanoma for all New Zealanders.
This is the MA's one charity day of the year when we get marketers to socialise and support a fabulous cause. 
If you're interested in supporting this fabulous day for marketers, get a team together and enter! Plus, there are also hole sponsorship options available. Please email Alessandra Francoia, Office Manager, Melanoma New Zealand or John Miles, CEO, Marketing Association, and they would be happy to assist you.

The Cause


New Zealand’s melanoma incidence rate is the highest in the world and all of Melanoma New Zealand’s work is self-funded. This work includes providing over 12,000 skin cancer spot checks to New Zealanders nationwide and finding over 1,500 suspicious lesions.
We aim to raise more than $80,000 on the day to advance Melanoma New Zealand’s mission of providing information and support to melanoma patients and their families, and to champion the prevention and early detection of melanoma.

The statistics are dire…

  • New Zealand’s melanoma incidence rate is the highest in the world
  • Nearly 7000 melanomas are diagnosed in New Zealand every year 
  • Around 300 New Zealanders die of melanoma every year – in fact, more people die of skin cancer than on our roads
  • Melanoma accounts for nearly 80% of all skin cancer deaths
  • Death rates are higher among men and appear to be increasing.

But… if melanoma is recognised and treated early enough, it is almost always curable.

Please complete the below form in order to register your team of 4 for The Keith Norris Charity Golf Cup. Once we have received your form submission,  we will process your invoice for payment ($995 + GST per team). Please note we must receive payment at least 7 days prior to the tournament start date (12 February 2024).

Event Rules:


Participants are required to declare their individual handicaps; in the absence of an official handicap, default values of 28 for men and 36 for women will be automatically assigned. 

Game Format and Ambrose Rules

  • All players tee off on every hole.
  • The team then selects one shot to be their best shot, which is where they will ALL play their second shot from.
  • To continue from the point of the best shot spot, you may place your ball within one club length no nearer the hole.
  • Once on the green, the best positioned ball is marked and all players putt from that point, within one putter head length no nearer the hole, until the hole is finished.
  • You must use a minimum of 3 tee shots per player.


  • There is only one score for the team per hole. Team captains record the gross score for each hole (number of shots taken to put the ball in the hole plus any penalties).
  • Team net score when you’ve finished 18 holes’ is calculated by deducting the team handicap from the gross score. 

Dress Code

A high standard of dress is always required. Jeans, tee shirts, hats, and caps are not permitted in the clubhouse, and men are not permitted to wear sandals/ open shoes. On the course, golf attire must be in keeping with the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour guidelines.

Rate of Play

If you lose sight of a ball, have a quick scan of the area but move on quickly to avoid holding up others.
