Tuesday Tome 15th February 2022

It is good to see the sunshine again after all the rain at the weekend but the course has certainly benefitted from it.  Opening Day was cancelled on Sunday as was Interclub on Saturday and Pennants on Monday.

Coming up this weekend we have the Dick Bennett 4BBB Stableford – this is open to everyone and the cost is $20/pair – tee off is at 10.30am – please send entries to the office by 5pm on Friday.

On the Club Noticeboard is the flyer for the St Johns Ambrose on Friday 1st April – please note this is limited to the first 25 teams entered and paid.

Also on the Club Noticeboard is the flyer for the Featherborough Golf Thursday Open on 17th March.  Entries to be emailed to entries@martinboroughgolfclub.co.nz

This weekend Div 3 are away at Te Marua and Div 11 are at Mahunga.  On Monday the Silver Pennants team are at Otaki and the Bronze Pennants team are hosting.

Results from last week:

Grumpies played a Par round with Doug Ferguson winning on +5 on a countback from Brent McKinlay, Rick Hargreaves +3 and Andrew Sim and Brett Abercrombie on +1.  There was only one 2 and that went to Shayne Cater.

On Wednesday the 9 and 18 hole ladies joined together to open their season with a fun Ambrose competition.  They played in teams of 4 over 13 holes.  The winners were “Dusk till Dawn’ Katrina, Jill, Marion and Diana with a round of 67.

Thursday Club had a good turnout with Brian Russo taking the money with 43 points from Rob Lopez 40, Pete Griffiths 39, Neil McKirdy and Paul Riddiford on 38.  Twos went to Malcolm Wood (2), Chris Ranish, Doug Clark, Brian Russo, Pete Griffiths, Jason Shaw, Rob Lopez, Glen Schofer and Pete Price.  Nearest the pin went to Neil McKirdy.

That’s all for this week – let’s hope this weekend is drier than the last!!
