Lovely sunny day today with a bit of a breeze which doesn’t seem to have deterred the Grumpies.

Coming up this week we have the Featherborough Tournament on Thursday, rego 11.00am with a 12.00pm tee off – entry is $20.  On Friday the ladies are playing Riverside Cup at Eketahuna against Carterton and on Sunday the Marquis Shield team are also at Eketahuna playing Masterton. On Monday the Silver Pennants team are at Masterton against Otaki and we are hosting the Bronze Combo Pennants teams so the course will be out of action until mid afternoon.
