Martinborough Golf Report
Reporter: Ailsa Malneek
Well golfers, spring has sprung…..a leak it would seem. I don’t think much pleasurable golf will get played this week as the southerlies and rain line up for attack.
Twenty Grumpies played last week, 1st Peter Price +5, 2nd Guy Walmsley +3, 3rd Malcolm Bridge +2. Twos: Lachie McLeod & Ted Peacock. Five unfortunates didn’t make it past the ladies tees – hopefully Terry will give us a glimpse of the league table soon!
9-holers played stableford, 1st Gaylene Delby-Neal, 2nd Katrina Burgess, 3rd Sandy Burgess. Nearest the pins: Jane Fanslow-Price & Katrina Burgess.
Ladies played a nett round with putting. 1st Marilyn MacKenzie 78, 2nd on CB from Adele Cairns, 3rd Rosie McLeod – a good welcome home game! Twos: Adele Cairns, Carol Parkinson won the putting with 33 putts. There’s still time to register for the 50th anniversary of the Lady Stout Competition against Royal Wellington on Friday 14th September.
Thursday club was a rollover from last week so the prizes were great! 1st Sir William Southgate 43, 2nd Nick Allen, Pete Price & Glen Schofer 39, 5th Tony Taylor, Joel Macklin and John Warner 38. Twos: Arthur Warren, Bill Jones, Chris Wilkie, Michael Tosswill & Greg Dalton. Nearest the pin was won with a supreme hole in one by Bevan Sweeney on number 8 – his first – congratulations! We might see Bevan in a hat for the next few weeks after having his head shaved for the Cancer Society on daffodil day, good on you Sweenze!
Saturday’s tournament was stableford, 1st Chris Ranish & Julie Warner 38, 3rd John Warner 36, 4th Sheldon McNamara 35. Twos: Chris Ranish & Sandra Petersen. Sunday’s competition was medal. 1st Sandra Petersen 64, 2nd John Warner 66, 3rd John Taylor 70 and 4th Stuart Taplin & Carl Petersen 71. Twos: Sandra Petersen. Putting: Sandra Petersen 27 – well cleaned up Mrs P!
Enjoy the first week of spring golfers! Remember Lamb & Chardonnay Open Ambrose Tournament on Sunday 16th September, hurry and register now, places are running out!
