Tuesday Tome 18th April 2023

Firstly this week, we appear to be accumulating a vast amount of lost property.  Next time you are in the clubhouse can you please go through and check that there is nothing of yours in there as at the end of the month any items in the box will be discarded.

On Saturday Div 3 are hosting Wainuiomata and Div 10 are away at Royal Wellington.  Good luck to both teams.

The coring of the greens which had been scheduled for last week but was cancelled due to the weather has been rescheduled for this Thursday/Friday, however the forecast for tomorrow is not looking good which means that it will then be done on Monday/Tuesday next week.  A decision will be made first thing tomorrow morning and an email will be sent out to members.  Should the course be closed on Thursday those of you who normally play Thursday Club are more than welcome to play on Wednesday teeing off at the usual time of 12.15pm.

Coming up on Friday 5th May we have the Eastwood Motor Group Beef & Burgundy Open Ambrose Tournament.  Entries are already coming in for this so if you wish to play please contact the office as soon as possible to ensure your entry.

Results from last week:  On Wednesday the Ladies played a Par round with Ju Allen the winner of +5, Jane Terpstra -1 and Sandra Petersen -2.  Nearest the pins went to Alison Tipler on #6 and Ju Allen on #8 who also got the only two of the day.

The 9 holers were at Carterton where they played a Stableford round with Billie Holmes the winner with 27 points, Lizzy Thomson 23 and Jenny Tosswill 21.

On Thursday the 9 holers played interclub at Kapiti against Paraparaumu Beach No 1 who are at the top of the division.  Jenny Tosswill had a very good win against their top player and the other three all narrowly lost their matches.

Thursday Club had a very good turnout with Brian Russo winning with 40 points, Sandy Bidwill 39, Rob Smith 38, Brent McKinlay & Peter Schenk 37 and Ed Elworthy, Stu Taplin and Shane Colton 36.  Nearest the pin went to David Stevenson who also got his two along with Dayle Harwood, James Blundell, Nick Morsion, George Kirk, Brian Russo, Sandy Bidwill and Bevan Sweeney.
