Ladies Golf Newsletter #11 12th April 2015

Jean Hobbs one of our Life members has passed away in her 91st year. Jean, who lived for many years at Pahautea before moving to Waikanae was an active member of the Club in the 60’s 70’s, 80’s and the 90’s and is remembered fondly for her love and knowledge of the game. We also have Jean to thank, for her many hours of fundraising for our Clubhouse after the original was destroyed by arson in the early 70’s. Jean spent many hours alongside the other ladies picking and selling apples, organizing events including highly successful Cabarets and after making a couple of calls to those who knew her, recall her as a tireless worker and a privilege to know. Jean was Ladies Captain in 1974 and 75, wasn’t too bad at the game either, the Bronze Champion in 1978 and made a Life member in 1996.

Friday’s St Johns Tournament was very well supported with 28 teams of four playing Ambrose with just over $8,000.00 being made.

Carterton fortunately postponed Riverside Cup so we remain in number one spot on the point’s table after two rounds with 8 pts.

Tomorrow the Silver Pennant team play at Masterton against Otaki, the Bronze team has a postponement.

Wednesday Comp.

Waking up to rain falling put a few souls off and decreased our numbers this week to 21 players for the 3rd Qualifying round Captains Trophy, LGU, Putting and Shootout. Fortunately, the brollys were only up for a hole or two and with placing it was great to be hitting off some green stuff for a change. A good day by the writer saw her win the Comp with a Nett 65, 2nd Felicity Warren Nett 67, 3rd Sherry Weatherstone Nett 69 and 4th Marilyn Mackenzie Nett 71. Putting, the writer 25putts 2nd Sandra Petersen 26 Putts.

Nearest the Pins All Teed Up on number 6 was Marian Mc Kenzie and the writer won Medici Voucher on Number 8. Marian and I also got a two each for our efforts.


This week duties are Gaye Didsbury and Kaye Mc Isaac on Sandwiches and Louise Smith and Shirley Rattray are Stewards for this Wednesdays
