Tuesday Tome 3rd October 2023

Just when you think Spring is here Winter decides to show its face again.

This week Thursday Club is having a $10 tournament, everyone is welcome and there are loads of prizes up for grabs.  Please have your card in by 11.55am.

Friday 13th October we are hosting the Lamb & Chardonnay Ambrose, registration is from 10.30am with tee off at 11.30am.  Spots are filling up fast so please get your team in to me by next Wednesday (11th).  Entry fee is $160/team of 4.  Please note that this is open to all affiliated members with a NZGA handicap.

Results from last week:  No golf for the Grumpies or Ladies last week, however there was a reasonable turnout for Thursday Club and James Elworthy was the winner on the day with 44 points, 2nd Shane Colton 38, Tim Loe 37, Raymond Matthews 36 and Ed Brown and Johnson Williams 35 points.  Twos went to Malcolm Bridge (2), Doug Clark (2), Kheinan Morrissey, Johnson Williams, Tee Aranui and Graham Wilson.  Nearest the pin was Malcolm Bridge.
