There were 27 players in the Grumpy’s last week, another good turnout. The winner was Mark Trafford who was a very ‘happy chappy’ as it was his best golfing round ever.

Bill Jones, Bob Tosswill, Sheldon McNamara and Alison Sim all finished with 40 points. Nick Allen, Andrew Lawler, Edward Elworthy and Doug Clark finished the prize list off with 39 points. Ali Holmes had a round he would rather forget.

Saturday’s bisque par was won by Shane Arndell with a brilliant plus 9. Young Caleb Everson was runner up with a very good plus 8. Guy Walmsley was plus 6 and Derrick Thorley finished plus 5. Guy Walmsley and Bob Tosswill scored the only twos and Trevor Prescott took out nearest the pin.

Not too many turned up to play the Chicago Stableford on Sunday but a very good contingent from Featherston enjoyed the course.

The winner was Garry “Banjo” Paterson with 40 points. Club Captain Ro Griffiths was runner up with 38 points. Bruce Ward and Chris Rendle both finished with 37 points.

26 Grumpy’s turned up last Tuesday to play in dismal weather. The competition was won by Ed Houlter with a very good 42 stableford points. It is quite fitting that Ed won as he travels in from Tora and is always the first one to arrive at the course.

It was a putting and shoot out round for the 9 hole ladies and the winner was Louise Lyster with an amazing 14 putts. Runner up was Natalie Donaldson with 17 putts on a count back from Honor Clark. Honor also had the only two on the Susan Stephen sponsored 16th hole.

Numbers were down quite a bit for the18 hole ladies from previous weeks. However Marilyn McKenzie, Lyle Griffiths and Sandra Petersen all shared a Nett 75. Laraine Nix finished with a Nett 76.

Thursday club and here 39 played in pretty good conditions. Matt Thomas was the eventual winner with 46 points and took out nearest the pin as well. Trevor Hawkins and Nick Allen shared second spot with 43 points each. Roger Parkinson had 42; Bill Jones and Guy Walmsley both had 41 and Sandra Petersen had 40 points. Ailsa Griffiths and Graeme McIsaac finished off the prize list with 39 points. Unfortunately Sandra Petersen’s hubby Trevor had a miserable round.

The members only mid winter Ambrose on Saturday attracted 72 entries which was an excellent turn out and made for a successful tournament despite the treacherous wind conditions. The winners were Malcolm Wood, Terry Fraei, Mark Lucock and Lyall Callaghan with a very impressive Nett 54.7. Great to see Lyall back and he’s still in top form. In second place were Terry Blacktop, Bill Crook, Reuben Crook and Wayne Hunter with Nett 58. Nick Allen, Sheldon McNamara, Bruce Ward and Dean Schaef were third with a very good Nett 58.9. Colin Whibley-Smith, Caleb Everson, Paul Collins and Derrick Thorley had a Nett 59.8. Nearest the pins ladies were Bernadette Pither and men’s Caleb Everson.

The earlier tee off time for the tournament proved great and the spirit in the club house at the conclusion of the tournament was one of camaraderie and friendship; all in all a great day was had by all.

Good Golfing & Good Luck

No play for the Grumpy’s this week; the weather was shocking.

Five 9 holers braved the elements on Wednesday to play a par round and the winner was Honor Clark on -1; a very good effort under the circumstances. Runner up was Nat Donaldson and Louise Lyster was third. Eight courageous 18 holers also turned up to play – while five went off for coffee Carol, Jenny and Diana rose to the challenge and defied the odds.

The weather was a little better for Thursday and 34 ventured out. The winner was Doug Clark with 44 points. Andrew Sims, Dean Schaef and Sandra Peterson finished with 38 points. Terry Blacktop, Ed Elworthy, Shayne Hammond and Nick Allen finished the prize list with 37 points.

The weather was marvelous on Friday for the ladies Copthorne/Solway Resort Open. Jan Williams from Masterton took out the top prize with a Nett 69. Local members Sandra Petersen, Jenny Wilkie, Bindy McLeod all featured in the prize list while Ju Allen and Robyn Blackett did well in the 2nd Division. All prize winners received mini bottles of champagne with their prizes courtesy of Bottle O, who was the major sponsor of the tournament.

Saturday’s comp was a medal round and another chance to qualify for the shoot out. Peter Hudson with a Nett 65 won from Patrick Pedlow who had a Nett 67. Sandra Petersen and Dean Schaef were next with Nett 71 and the only two was scored by Sandra while the Jeff Barber nearest the pin went to George Wilkins.

It was shoot out again for Sunday’s round which was won by Tora Boyne with a Nett 68. Trevor Hawkins, Reuben Crook, Cathy Ward all had Nett 70. Bob Goodley, Garry Paterson and Malcolm Wood were next with Nett 71. The putting was won by Doug Clark.
