Martinborough Wednesday Golf Report (04 March)
Eleven pairs completed the Srixon Nancy McCormack 36 hole foursomes with some sizzling scoring in the morning round as the sun turned it up a notch.Young guns Ju Allen and Natalie Donaldson may have had the odd blip in their 2nd round but held off the seasoned pairs to take line honours by one shot. A formidable 61.5 Nett in the morning, including an eagle on the Par 5 2nd hole from a chip in by Ju. A 68.5 in the afternoon gave them the 2015 title from Diana Donald and Robyn Blackett 62.5 and 68.5 (131).  A two-way tie in 3rd spot on 133, Lyle Griffiths and Mariana McDermott Nett 63.5 am and 69.5 pm and hot favourites Sharon Jephson and Adele Cairns recording exceptional rounds of Nett 66 and Nett 67.The stableford round was won by Alice Forward with 45 points, Sylvia Beavis having two twos and 42 pts.Interclub Monday 02 March
Great results from the Bronze Pennant gals with a 4-2 win against Te Marua at Karori. Gaye Didsbury 4/3, Sylvia Beavis 3/1, Marian McKenzie taking an early lunch break dismissed her opponent 8/6 and Lyle Griffiths 4/2.The top two Silvers Pip Kirk and Kris Chamberlain found themselves having to give 11 and 12 shots to their counterparts from Boulcott Heritage Farm making it tough for the foursomes with Kris’s opposition getting a hole in one, though this did help with focusing on the other task resulting in a singles win to Kris 3/2.

Sherry Weatherstone notching her singles win after only 11 holes 8/7, had to stay out in the sunshine to get the only half in the foursomes with her partner Sandra Petersen, and Jenny Boyne 3/1.
