This week I would like to start by taking this opportunity to remind those of you who play on a weekend to please READ THE SCREEN when you are printing your card – I am getting very irritated (and there is nothing worse than a growling Rottweiler in the office) having to check who is in the competition of the day and who is not. If you are not entered in the competition then press NO – it isn’t rocket science!!!!
On Monday morning we had a few in the clubhouse watching the final round of The Masters and enjoying a cooked breakfast and afterwards a number of them then went out to play a round where the winning player (Seanoa Isaac) was presented with a magnificent “Green Jacket” and I think when other players see it they will all be vying to wear it next year.
Yesterday we also hosted 9 hole Interclub with 12 teams out playing so all in all a busy Monday morning.
The Ladies played Riverside Cup at Masterton on Friday with Nicola Warren the only one to come away with a point. On Sunday the ladies played Tilson Salver at Masterton where Carol Parkinson and Emily Loughnan won their 4 ball, Carol halved her singles match and Emily won, Angela Busby and Nicola Warren halved their 4 ball, Nicola won her singles match and Angela lost on the 18th.
