Tuesday Tome 10th May 2022

It has been a very sad start to the week with the news of the passing of Sally Fairbrother – she will be remembered fondly by us all.  Our condolences go to Charlie.

Can I please remind all members that when they are teeing off the 3rd and 12th tees to please wait for any traffic to pass – I had a gentleman in the office last week whose car now has a large dent in the bonnet!!!

This Sunday is the Beef & Burgundy – please remember to let me know of any changes to your team prior to Sunday morning.

Results from last week:  There was a good turnout for Grumpies with Malcolm Bridge taking the money with 40 points from Mariana McDermott 39, Doug Ferguson 38 and Raymond Matthews and Richard Harvey both with 36 points.  Twos went to Andrew McKenzie, Brian Russo and Andy Morison.

On Wednesday the ladies played a Stableford round with Katrina Burgess leading the way with 41 points, Ju Allen 39, Mariana McDermott, Carol Parkinson and Rosie Collins 38 points.  Nearest the pins went to Marilyn McKenzie on #6 and Katrina on #8.  There were no twos.

The 9 holers played an LGU/Sue Bunt Nett/Shoot Out round with Jill Murphy nett 34 winning on a countback from Billie Holmes, Debbie Coom 36 and Tingay Davidson nett 37.  Nearest the pins went to Jill Murphy #8 and Jane Fanselow-Price #16.

The 9 holers had interclub at Miramar playing against Waikanae – Jaquee Reid had a good win with the other three having close matches.

There was a strong turnout last Thursday with Sandra Petersen taking the honours with 40 points from Pete Griffiths also on 40, Chris Hanson 39, Sheldon McNamara 38 and Shane Ireland and Bevan Sweeney 37 points.  Twos went to Darren Bevan and Trevor Petersen and nearest the pin was Jason Shaw.

Competition on Saturday was a Par round with Robin Brasell leading the way on +3 and Angela Busby +2.  Robin had the only two of the day.

Sunday was Shoot Out/Medal/Putting – Ant North was the winner with a nett 69, Mark Lucock 70, Warwick McKee 72 and Phil Eberlein, Bob Tosswill and Dayle Harwood 74.  Twos went to Ant, Malcolm Wood, Derek Stephens, Bob Tosswill, Mark, Chris Handley and Phil.

On Saturday Div 3 played at home against Karori with John Warner, Josh Hawkins, Lyall Callaghan and Tim Fenwick all halving their matches and Tim Richards, Kingi Kaiwai and Sheldon McNamara all winning theirs.  John and Tim R halved their 4 ball and Chris Ranish and Sheldon won their 4 ball.

Div 11 were in the play offs at Trentham against Te Marua.  In the 4 ball matches Rob Coy and Brent McKinlay and Peter and Jackson Gray won their games and in the singles Shayne Cater, Rob Coy, Tora Boyne, Pete Griffiths, Malcolm Bridge, Peter Gray and Jackson all had wins and Brent McKinlay halved his match.  This takes them through to the finals this Saturday when they will be playing Royal Wellington.  Good luck to the team – go Martinborough!!!!

On Monday the Silver Pennants team played at Manor Park against Masterton in very wet conditions – and some of us “don’t do rain!!”  In the 4 ball Sandra Petersen and I had a win and Ju Allen and Netia Morison halved their match.  In the singles Sandra and Jenny Wilkie won and Netia halved her match.  Hopefully everyones clubs will be dry by next week.

It is a busy week coming up for the ladies – this Friday they are hosting Riverside Cup, Silver Pennants on Monday and Ladies Open Day on Wednesday.

That’s it for this week – have a good one.
