This week I would like to start by congratulating Anna Possenniskie on getting into the Wellington Women’s Masters Interprovincial team. The team will be competing in the Women’s Masters National Interprovincial at the Alexandra Golf Club in Otago from March 31st to April 3rd when they will play 4 rounds of strokeplay over 3 days. Go Anna!!
On Saturday Div 3 and Div 11 were playing at home and both teams had excellent wins – Div 3 won 13.5/1.5 and Div 11 won 11.5/3.5. This puts both teams at the top of their divisions.
On Sunday the final round of last years Marquis Shield was played at Mahunga and we were playing Carterton – they won the singles 6.5/5.5 and we won the 4ball 3.5/2.5. The overall result meant that Pahiatua won the Shield for 2021 with Eketahuna 2nd and Martinborough 3rd.
On Friday the Ladies are playing Riverside Cup at Eketahuna against Carterton. On Saturday Div 3 are playing at Karori and Div 11 are at home against Miramar.
