Hello Golfers.

The Beef & Burgundy Ambrose held on Friday had a great turnout in favourable conditions. Thank you to everyone involved and the sponsors Eastwood Motor Group. Top honours went to Team Michael Bing, Shane Colton, Tiawharangi Aranui, and Lisa-Marie Ireland with a Net score of 56.25. 2nd was Team Doug Clark, Stu Taplin, Bevan Sweeney, and Matt Gloag on 57.75, and 3rd Team Jimmy McKinnel, Nigel Simpson, James Waugh, and Mark Gray on 58.12. The Women’s Longest Drive was Sandra Petersen and the Men’s, Owen Lloyd. Nearest the Pins #6 Brock Shute, #8 Tiawharangi, #12 Carol Parkinson, and #16 Zeb Livingston.

The Ngahau Trophy is on this Sunday 19 May and the Flyer is attached. The Ngahau Trophy was presented to the club by June & Guy Hume as a competition amongst the Committee, Ladies Committee, Staff, Administrators, and Life Members. Ngahau was the name of the Hume’s Pirinoa farm and coincidentally 19 May was the day that June & Guy married in Sydney during WWII (Thanks Nicola Warren for this extra info). There are separate competitions on the day – Grandma’s, Grandpa’s, Non-Grandma’s, and Non-Grandpa’s. Something for everyone.

The weekend competition was Medal/Putting on 11 and 12 May – there were no entries on Saturday. On Sunday, 1st Bob Schofield Net 65, 2nd Robbie Walters Net 69, 3rd on a countback Johnny Gray Net 72. Jason Shaw had a winning 28 putts, and got a Two on #16, and Bevan Sweeney got a Two on #8.

This weekend the Saturday comp is Stableford, with the Ngahau Trophy on Sunday.

Men’s Interclub results Saturday 11 May – Div 2 were away at Karori securing 4.5 points at what is traditionally a tough away venue. This drops them out of the top spot on the Div 2 table but only by half a point, so they are definitely still in the running to take out the division. They are away to Boulcott’s Farm this weekend; a big performance is needed! Come on team!!!

Div 10 were away to Shandon with an 11.5 win! An amazing effort that puts the team only 2.5 points away from winning the division outright. With Div 10 playing at home this weekend they are almost assured of a table topping win! What a season for both teams. Bring it home in the weekend boys! (Shayne Cater)

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 8 May – LGU and Putting, Juliana Allen & Karen Shaw won the putting with an impressive 29 putts. Closest to the pin on #6 was Jo-Anne Loe. Lucky as that ball hit the leaves on #7. Closest to the pin on #8 was Nicola Warren. LGU 1st Deidre Thomsen with 68, 2nd =Karen Delehanty & Sherry Weatherstone with 71, 4th was Marie Scrimshaw with 72. The Wenerei Trophy is awarded to the player with the most points from the Wednesday competitions. The 1st place getter gets 3, 2nd 2 and 3rd 1. Sharon Jephson is leading the charge closely followed by Louise Smith and then Felicity Warren. (Nicola Warren)

The Tilson Salver was played Sunday 12 May at Riversdale, and we had a 3.5: 2.5 win. Alison Tipler & Emily Loughnan were the stars winning their singles with large margins! Alison Tipler/Karen Shaw won the 4BBL and Emily Loughnan/Nicola Warren drew their 4BBl. The last Tilson game is in a few weeks and sadly, we will be handing the trophy to another club! (Nicola Warren)

Grumpies – Results from the Stableford round on Tuesday 7 May – 1st with 38 Stableford points Andy Morison, 2nd = Bruce Sollitt, Ray Matthews, David Kershaw all on 37 points, and 5th was Mike Topp on 36 points. Twos went to Malcolm Bridge and David Kershaw, both on #8.
