Ladies Golf Newsletter #10 30th March 2015

A glorious sunny day today hosting Bronze Pennants in Martinborough yielded some excellent results for our team scooping 5 ½ wins over Karori elevating us into the top half of the standings. Well-played team Sylvia, Jaclyn, Gretel, Lyle, Felicity and Sharon.

Black Sunday continued on Monday for the Silvers who played at Shandon against Royal Wellington and like the Men’s Marquis Shield team (11-1 loss), the Silvers were slaughtered, one win from the foursomes from Kris C and Sandra P., thanks girls for saving the down trou.

Four ladies went to Masterton to compete in the Wairarapa Open 18 hole stroke play last Friday and three came home with a prize. Well done to Lyle Griffiths, Jo Loe and Natalie Donaldson. The fourth played rather poorly (Club Captain) and was happy just to finish under triple figs.
