Whangarei R.C.Clubs & Courses Index
The Club is based at Ruakaka Racecourse which boasts expansive ocean views and hosts twelve meetings per season. The racing surface has a well-earned reputation as New Zealand's finest 'all weather' track. The reliability of the racing surface makes Ruakaka popular with trainers outside the area who base themselves here during the winter months. Access to the beautiful beach to train on makes the Club unique, hence its logo: "Where the turf meets the surf!"
