Meet The Clubroom Team

Welcome to The Clubroom Waitemata. Our goal is to service all members and visitors of Waitemata Golf Club to the best of our ability. From greeting you with a friendly smile, to providing you with information on all product in store, to dealing with any golf related queries. Our team will do our best to cater for everyones needs.
The shop will stock the latest and greatest product from Ping, Titleist, Mizuno and Wilson, along with apparel associated with those brands and a range of accessories. We have a new $30,000 launch monitor as part of our club fitting arsenal. This piece of equipment helps us to fully customise a club or a set to you and your golf game.
We currently hold the fitting kits for Ping and Titleist (with the Newton Road store holding Mizuno, Wilson, Ping and Titleist), so come in and see the team and we'll look after you the best we can!
The Team
Jason Gulasekharam - Director of Golf
Hi everyone! My name is Jason and I'm the Shop Manager and Golf Operations Manager for Waitemata Golf Club. I'm a golfer myself, playing off a +2.0 handicap. I've represented North Harbour in the Open Grade Men's team since 2010, playing number one and captaining the side from 2013-2016. I've also represented New Zealand at the Master of the Amateurs tournament at Royal Melbourne in 2016. I have a degree in Communications with a major in Journalism, which I have previously put into practice working with Radio Sport and the Holden Golf World on Sky TV.
My job is to run the shop, look after all club golf matters, field any golf related queries you may have, and to fit you into whatever clubs or equipment you may need.
My goal is to get to know everyone at the club and ensure that everyone walks away satisfied and with a smile on their face.
