Hello Golfers.

The Saturday and Sunday competition was Par on 25 & 26 May – There were no entries on Saturday, but Sunday saw a turnout of 26 players. Malcolm Bridge was 1st on 3, Chris Ranish 2nd on a countback from 3rd Derek Stephens both with 2.

This weekend the Saturday and Sunday comp is Medal/Putting and Shoot Out Rounds 9 & 10 on 1 & 2 June.

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 22 May – A hardy 10 players braved the weather last Wednesday, 8 of them were playing matches but also putted out to be in the Home Pennants competition.

Results 1st Nicola Warren with 36 stableford points, 2nd Jo-Anne Loe with 35 and 3rd was Sarah Monaghan with 31. There was no closest to the pin, but 3 players scored a 2 – Emily Loughnan and Felicity Warren on #8 and Jo-Anne Loe on #12.

The last rounds of the Riverside Cup and Tilson Salver were played on Friday & Sunday, respectively. Jo-Anne Loe had a win in the Riverside and Emily Loughnan had a half.  Sadly, this year we didn’t get the wins we needed in both competitions.  The opposition was tough and our lower than usual handicaps didn’t help. Nicola would particularly like to thank the following players who represented us with great sportsmanship … it’s no mean feat to be available for all these games, to travel, play and be wonderful teammates. The players with the most wins were Emily Loughnan with 3 ½ wins (and was away for some), followed by Nicola Warren with 3. Karen Shaw played the most games, playing all Riverside and Tilson Games, followed by Nicola Warren. Jo-Anne and Alison Tipler played 4 games in total. Honor Clark, Sarah Monaghan, Sandra Petersen, and Kris Mason played 3 games, and Jane Terpstra, Venetia Morison, Juliana Allen, Angela Busby, and Felicity Warren were able to play a game. Thank you all for supporting Nicola in putting these teams forward and for being prompt with a yes or no for availability. Sandra’s response is always I’m here if you need! This is so appreciated. Sometimes, the courses do not suit the long hitters, or the handicap differentials are too great. (Nicola Warren)

Grumpies – Results from the Stableford round on Tuesday 21 May – A handful of brave souls turned up, but the rain was the winner on the day.

Thursday Club – Stableford results from Thursday 23 May – 1st Shayne Hammond 41, 2nd Shane Hislop 40, 3rd = Alistair Petrie and Johnny Gray 38, 5th = Bevan Sweeney, Jason Shaw, and Chris Ranish 36. Nearest the Pin was Bevan Sweeney, and Twos on #6 Chris Ranish and Robbie Walters, Twos on #8 Nick Morison and Bevan Sweeney, and Alistair Petrie got a Two on #16.

Sunday Club – Be ready for the Draw at 10am.

Hello Golfers.

The Ngahau Trophy was on Sunday 19 May, and we had a total of 54 players including the Grandma’s, Grandpa’s, non-Grandma’s, and non-Grandpa’s. The Ngahau Trophies were won by the Captains – Andy Morison 36 Stableford points and Nicola Warren with 40 Stableford points. The Grandma walking stick was won by Marie Scrimshaw, Richard Pither the Grandpa’s walking stick both with 41 points. The non-Grandma’s division was won by Nicola Warren, and Guy Walmsley won the non-Grandpa’s division both with 40 points. A wonderful day was had by all.

The Saturday competition was Stableford on 18 May – with three entries. 1st Byron Hegglin 30 points, and 2nd Ben Turner 29 points. There were no Twos.

This weekend the Saturday and Sunday comp is Par on 25 & 26 May.

Men’s Interclub results Saturday 18 May – Division 2 were away to Boulcott’s Farm for their last round of the season, and still in with a good chance to top the table, coming away with 6 points. A credible result but with Te Marua getting 11 points at home, that was enough for them to sneak into the top position. Still a fantastic result finishing 2nd overall in Division 2. This is a team who only 2 years ago were in Division 4 and are now challenging for promotion to Division 1. Great result for Josh Hawkins and the team.

Division 10 were at home to Mahunga and only needed 2.5 points to win the division. Pete Gray and Shayne Cater were first out securing 3 points straight off the bat to secure the division win. The result of 11/4 was indicative of the solid performances put in through the season. Contributions across the team but a shout out to Steve Croft for an outstanding season as well as Murray Hill at #1, and Jackson Gray who is really maturing into a good player. Thanks to Tora and Shayne Hammond for running things and to everyone who played for either division, thank you for your contribution. (Shayne Cater)

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 15 May – A stableford round as there were some matches being played. 1st Jaquee Reid with 36, 2nd Diana Donald with 35, 3rd = Adele Cairns, Bernadette Pither, and Karen Delehanty with 33. Closest to the pin on #6 was Karen Shaw and # 8 was Susie Matthews.

Riverside was held at Pahiatua where we were all playing on reduced handicaps (from Martinborough), we’re giving shots in winter-type fairway conditions and playing the tricky Eketahuna course. So, it was tough! Nicola Warren had a win; Sandra Petersen had a half and Sarah Monaghan battled it out to the 18th. The next and last round is Friday 24 May at Riversdale Beach. I know that at least 4 of the team will be sporting the new caps that look so smart … thank you Emily Loughnan. They are on sale from the office for a reasonable $25. (Nicola Warren)

Grumpies – Results from the Stableford round on Tuesday 14 May – 1st = with 37 points Soli Noval and Rick Thompson, 3rd = Malcolm Bridge and Malcolm Wood, 5th = Mike Eastwood, Bruce Sollitt, and John Tanner. Twos went to Ed Elworthy and Andrew McKenzie on #6, Paul Riddiford on #8, and Malcolm Wood on #12.

Thursday Club – Stableford results from Thursday 16 May – 1st James Elworthy 39, 2nd = Alistair Petrie, John Tanner, Rob Coy, Paul Riddiford all on 38 points. Twos on #6 were Jason Shaw and John Monaghan, #8 Rob Smith, #16 Bob Lindberg and David Stevenson. Nearest the Pin – Chris Handley.

Sunday Club – Be ready for the Draw at 10am.

Hello Golfers.

The Beef & Burgundy Ambrose held on Friday had a great turnout in favourable conditions. Thank you to everyone involved and the sponsors Eastwood Motor Group. Top honours went to Team Michael Bing, Shane Colton, Tiawharangi Aranui, and Lisa-Marie Ireland with a Net score of 56.25. 2nd was Team Doug Clark, Stu Taplin, Bevan Sweeney, and Matt Gloag on 57.75, and 3rd Team Jimmy McKinnel, Nigel Simpson, James Waugh, and Mark Gray on 58.12. The Women’s Longest Drive was Sandra Petersen and the Men’s, Owen Lloyd. Nearest the Pins #6 Brock Shute, #8 Tiawharangi, #12 Carol Parkinson, and #16 Zeb Livingston.

The Ngahau Trophy is on this Sunday 19 May and the Flyer is attached. The Ngahau Trophy was presented to the club by June & Guy Hume as a competition amongst the Committee, Ladies Committee, Staff, Administrators, and Life Members. Ngahau was the name of the Hume’s Pirinoa farm and coincidentally 19 May was the day that June & Guy married in Sydney during WWII (Thanks Nicola Warren for this extra info). There are separate competitions on the day – Grandma’s, Grandpa’s, Non-Grandma’s, and Non-Grandpa’s. Something for everyone.

The weekend competition was Medal/Putting on 11 and 12 May – there were no entries on Saturday. On Sunday, 1st Bob Schofield Net 65, 2nd Robbie Walters Net 69, 3rd on a countback Johnny Gray Net 72. Jason Shaw had a winning 28 putts, and got a Two on #16, and Bevan Sweeney got a Two on #8.

This weekend the Saturday comp is Stableford, with the Ngahau Trophy on Sunday.

Men’s Interclub results Saturday 11 May – Div 2 were away at Karori securing 4.5 points at what is traditionally a tough away venue. This drops them out of the top spot on the Div 2 table but only by half a point, so they are definitely still in the running to take out the division. They are away to Boulcott’s Farm this weekend; a big performance is needed! Come on team!!!

Div 10 were away to Shandon with an 11.5 win! An amazing effort that puts the team only 2.5 points away from winning the division outright. With Div 10 playing at home this weekend they are almost assured of a table topping win! What a season for both teams. Bring it home in the weekend boys! (Shayne Cater)

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 8 May – LGU and Putting, Juliana Allen & Karen Shaw won the putting with an impressive 29 putts. Closest to the pin on #6 was Jo-Anne Loe. Lucky as that ball hit the leaves on #7. Closest to the pin on #8 was Nicola Warren.
