Malcolm Bridge won the Putting with 24 putts, Julie Dondertman won the Net Medal, Alison Tipler was 2nd, and Karen Shaw and Vern Anton were 3rd equal.

The Saturday and Sunday Competition this weekend is Stableford/Twos both days. $5 cash entry fee.

CORING – this will take place on Thursday 14th March. The course will be closed for the day.

Men’s Interclub results 9th March – Division 2 were at home to Karori and had a fantastic 14 – 1 win. Amazing!!! Only 1 singles loss preventing a clean sweep. They now sit on top of the Div 2 table with 47.5 points. Division 10 had a tough away venture at Wainuiomata securing only 3.5 points for a 10.5 – 3.5 away loss. This drops Div 10 to 3rd on the table but with a couple of home games to come the team are determined to make up any lost ground.

The results from 9 hole Best Nett round on Wednesday 6 March – 1st on 29 was new member Doreen Allen, 2nd = on 32 was Tingay Davidson and Jenny Joblin. Nearest the Pin #16 Jane Fanselow Price, and #8 Sue Dalton.

18 hole results – last Wednesday Jenny Wilkie won the day with an impressive Nett 67 (Kris can take some credit as she tweaked Jenny’s putting technique!, 2nd was Sandra Petersen with 72 on a count back from Deidre Thomsen. 4th was Honor Clark with 73. These four ladies will be paired up and will compete in the District National Teams Event which will be played at Te Marua on 3rd May. Sherry Weatherstone is the Reserve for the National Teams. Closest to the pin was Sherry on #6 and Angela Busby on #8. Sherry scored the only 2 of the day! Honor won closest to the wiggly line.

Lansdowne Trophy was played last Saturday. Deb Donaldson won her singles, Deb and Vicky Bain and Anna and Amy won their 4BBB matches.  Anna and Deb missed Saturday’s game, but Amy, Cheycoda, Brenda and Sandra had wins in their singles and Sandra, Brenda, Amy and Cheycoda won their 4BBB, so Wairarapa had a healthy 6:3 win over Royal Wellington. The final round is at Manor Park vs Shandon. Wairarapa is only 2.5 points behind the team in #1 position, so the best of luck for 6th April.
