Tuesday Tome 19th April 2022

I hope you all had a good Easter – the course was extremely busy over the long weekend with a steady stream of green fee players.

This weekend we have a large group from Porirua playing on Saturday morning teeing off from various tees at 9.00am so if you are playing it could be slow.

On to more mundane things – for those of you who enter the clubhouse through the door on the 9th tee could you please remember to close the door behind you as the lounge gets full of leaves at this time of year if you leave it open.

Results from last week:  Grumpies played a Par round with Arthur Warren coming in on +9, Bob Schofield +3, Bill Gordon +2 and Andrew McKenzie and Lachie McLeod +1.  Twos went to Arthur, Seamus O’Sullivan and Tony Taylor.

On Wednesday the 9 holers played LGU/Sue Bunt Nett/Shoot Out with Ali Russell winning with a nett 33, Tingay Davidson 35 and Sandra Burgess 37.  Nearest the pins went to Jill Murphy on #8 and Jane Fanselow-Price on #16.

The 18 holers played LGU/Captains Trophy Qual 3/Shoot Out with Kelly Taylor having her best round with a nett 66, Jenny Wilkie and Angela Busby 71 and Sherry Weatherstone 72.  Twos went to Carol Parkinson, Ju Allen and Mariana McDermott and nearest the pin on #6 was Carol and #8 Mariana.

Thursday Club had a good turnout with Lloyd Warren winning with 47 points, Shane Colton and Nick Morison 43, Trevor Petersen 40, Bou-Dean Hawkins, Jason Burt and Seamus O’Sullivan 39 points.  Twos went to Nick Morison (very greedy he had 3!!!), Brian Russo, Andrew McKenzie, Doug Clark, Andy Morison, Brent McKinlay and Seamus O’Sullivan.  Nearest the pin was, yes you’ve guessed it, Nick Morison.

The competitions at the weekend were Par – on Saturday the winner was Jason Shaw who finished all square and he also won the Bird’s Nest but unfortunately there wasn’t a lot in it as it had only been won the week before.

On Sunday the winner was Ed Brown on +4 on a countback from Russell Kirk, Philippa Smith +3, Derek Stephens +2 and office buddy Carol Parkinson +1 and there were no twos.

That’s it for this week – short and sweet.
