Martinborough Golf Report

Reporter: Ailsa Malneek

As we enter the 10th month of the year, and wonder where the year has gone; fighting our eyes from late night rugby world cup fixtures and having an hour snatched away from us on Sunday morning – panic slowly and enjoy the longer evenings and warmer temperatures.

Grumpies results 1st = Griff Page and Randall Warner on 40, 3rd Gary Cuttance on 39 and 4th Phil Reid on 38. Twos to Guy Walmsley and Rick Thompson.

Ladies had their club champs final last week and there were some epic battles held out on the course. In the Silver division last year’s winner Debbie Donaldson beat Ju Allen.  Kris Chamberlain won the Silver Plate.  Jane Terpstra and Honor Clark came head to head in the Bronze A division. Jane got off to a very strong start and was 8 up after 11 holes! But Honor fought back to win on the 36th hole! Former Featherstone player Julie Dondertman won the Bronze A Plate. The Bronze B pairing of Nicola Warren and Angela Busby had a very close match, and play continued up to the 37th where Angela sank her putt ahead of Nicola. Alison Tipler won the Bronze B Plate.  Well done to all involved – and thanks to the caddies and the referees on the (quite chilly) day!

Thursday club had the weather and numbers on it’s side, 1st Tony Taylor 39, 2nd = Bill Jones and Ed Elworthy 38, 4th = Sky Elworthy, Scotty the butcher, Richard Mills, Dean Schaef, Rick Hargreaves and Dayle Harwood 36.  Twos – Scotty (2), Dean Schaef, Rick Hargreaves & Sheldon McNamara – special congratulations to Randal Warner who got a hole in one on 16 – cheers for the beer!

The AB Martin was held on Sunday – alternate hitting men and woman 1st John and Julie Warner – nett 72 on countback from Dayle and Marie Scrimshaw, 3rd Guy Walmsley & Karen Shaw nett 74, 4th Rob Lopez & Kris Chamberlain nett 77.

Good luck to all the guys involved in the 36/54 hole men’s open sponsored by Trust House this weekend – enjoy your week and good golfing everyone!
