Over the past couple of years a brand new 18-hole, 6485 metre par 72 championship golf course has been built in the rolling hills of Wainui just north of Auckland. This is the new Wainui Golf Course that has been developed to replace the nearby Peninsula Golf Course, which was acquired for housing development.
It has been said that this new Wainui course stands apart as one of the finest golf layouts in New Zealand. The course incorporates the natural topography of the New Zealand countryside and captures the rugged beauty of Kiwi landscapes. It is quite a development – included with the 18 hole course is two multi-sport courts, a nine hole short course (The Orchard) and a contemporary clubhouse with function areas, bars and restaurants that are open for lunch and dinner.
Over the past six months, as the course was opening late last year, the Benefitz team played a part in producing a range of items for the fantastic new golf course.
“What we have done at Wainui really demonstrates the value we offer to entities that require a wide range items produced,” says Dallas Bennett, Director of Benefitz. “Wainui had some excellent design work done on their brand and we have been able to pick that up and run with it for a whole range of items across the print, display and signage areas.”
Keeping with the supplied brand guidelines, the Benefitz team have designed and produced a range of printed items, including:- Business Cards; Championship Course Scorecards; The Orchard Nine Hole Scorecard; Diecut Presentation Folders; Golf Cart Concession Cards; Menus for the Restaurants.
Where the Benefitz work is really on display for all to see at Wainui is within the brand new clubhouse. Large printed images and graphics have been used to make a real statement. Working with the interior design concepts Benefitz have produced and installed a range of display and signage items within the clubhouse. These include digitally printed and cut vinyl graphics on walls throughout club house as well as directional signage, white boards and notice boards. A changeable portable display unit that is over two metres high and three metres long has also been produced for internal use.
Benefitz has also played a part with all the exterior signage at Wainui. Benefitz sign team have built a large double-sided billboard structure on the main road as you approach the new golf course that provides prominent directional signage and information.
As you drive up to the clubhouse you will also notice the main entry plinth and main entry lightbox signage that have all been produced and installed by Benefitz. Other exterior signage items Benefitz has done at Wainui include:- Orchard Nine Hole Course and Practice Green Signs; Local Rules Boards; Wayfinding Signage.
“I feel sure that the Wainui team would have really valued the fact that they have been able to deal with one supplier for all these items,” adds Dallas Bennett. “The development of this brand new facility will have been a massive project that has been several years in the making. We are proud to have played a part in adding the finishing touches.”
