Martinborough Ladies Golf Newsletter 22nd March 2015

Ladies Golf newsletter #9 22nd March 2015

We have had some great feedback to hosting the WW 36 hole tournament and appreciation for the contents of the bucket raffles. Thanks to all who contributed to the day.


Mixed fortunes for the pennants teams last week. The Bronzes struggled at Kapiti against Royal Wellington, with only two wins from our match play maestros Felicity Warren and Lyle Griffiths. The Silvers gals at Boulcott Heritage Farm played exceptionally well on the shorter and bunker populated new course with a cool 6-3 win against Masterton. 2/1 wins in the foursomes and three wins in the singles from Sandra Petersen, Bindy Mc Leod and Jenny Boyne and 2 halves from Sherry Weatherstone and Mariana Mc Dermott.

Lansdowne Trophy Cartinborough against Manor Park on their home course on Saturday produced mixed fortunes. While there were good wins in the foursomes from Pip Kirk and Sereana Phillipps 4/3 and Sharon Harper and Sandra Petersen 3/1, they found themselves being hammered in the singles with only one win from Wendy Rhodes 1 up and a half from Vicki Bain.

Five Ladies went to Carterton to Compete in their Open day on Wednesday and in a field of over 60 players all came home with a prize.

At home the course was playing somewhat different from the previous week, swathes of green patches have appeared and so heading toward Autumn the netts were truer to handicap. In 1st place in the LGU and shootout was Gretel Dick Nett 71, 2nd Sylvia Beavis 73 on a c/b Sharon Jephson 4th Jan Lankow Nett 76 on a c/b to Robyn Blackett, Marilyn Mackenzie and Adele Cairns. Sharon also slotted the only two and won the Medici Voucher for nearest the Pin on 8. Gretel won the All Teed Up Nearest the Pin on Number 6.
