Interclub Monday 29th April – Teed off in sunny, windless conditions for Round 6 of the Wellington 9 Women’s Interclub competition. Jane Fanselow-Price and Sherryl Howie won their games to give Martinborough a half against Karori. Well done ladies.

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 24th April – 1st Marilyn Mackenzie with a Net 71, 2nd Lyle Griffiths with 72, 3rd Felicity Warren with 73, 4th Karen Shaw with 74. Marilyn & Karen S won the putting competition with 28 putts. Ju Allen & Lyle both had Twos.

The news of the week must be Marilyn Mackenzie making a hole-in-one on #16. It’s not her first hole-in-one, but her first at Martinborough. Those that were there were able to celebrate with her with champagne. Nicola Warren loves the collegiality of our group of golfers – Marilyn gets the hole-in-one, and the cheers from Honor Clark & Marianna McDermott could be heard by some on the course. Luckily, we were nearby, so using Karen’s phone, I called Christina and we organised for the champagne to be chilled. Everyone was so pleased for Marilyn and enjoyed the celebration in the sun!

Landsdowne was played on Saturday 27th April and there are pictures of Deb Donaldson, Anna Possenniskie, Lisa-Marie Ireland, and Sandra Petersen on the WGI Facebook page. Anna, Deb, and Sandra won their singles. Deb & Sandra also won their 4BB. This was the final round.
