After a balmy weekend, we’re back to a few wintry days, so stoke up that fire or warm yourself up with a brisk game of golf!!

Grumpies got washed out last week, so no results from them!

Ladies played a Stableford competition 1stAdele Cairns 34, 2ndJu Allen 33, and 3rd Angela Busby 32.  Nearest the pins were: All Teed Up no 6 – Sherry Weatherstone and Cafe Medici no 8 – Bindy McLeod.  Bindy also scored two twos and Jenny Wilkie had one (two that is, not a hole in one!).

Thursday was another stunner of a day and there were nearly 50 players that turned up to enjoy the sunshine! 1stMariana McDermott 45, 2ndPaul McKenzie 41, 3rd= Guy Walmsley & David Kershaw 39, 5th= Raymond Matthews, Dean Schaef, Bill Gordon & Tony Taylor 38. Twos: Rob Smith, Malcolm Bridge, Dean Schaef, Richard Mills and Sheldon got two twos and nearest the pin.

We say a very fond farewell and thanks to Sue Berger our office manager who has been at the helm for 14 years, and welcome to Kris Chamberlein – a new but familiar face in the office.

Congratulations to both the seniors and thirds rugby teams on Saturday – it was fabulous to see so many Marty supporters at Memorial Park;they were very well-deserved wins, you made your town very proud!!

That’s it for me for this week, look after you and yours and good golfing everyone!!
