Tuesday Tome 6Feb24

Hi Members on a very hot Tuesday. Twenty Grumpies are braving the heat this afternoon.

Last Thursday we hosted the CER Electrical & Holmes Construction Pro-Am with 44 professionals and teams playing.  Eleven teams went out at 7.00am and the rest of the field teed off at 11.00am.  The winning professional was Nick Coxon (63).

There were some amazing prizes up for grabs with the winning team, Bindy McLeod, Sarah Monaghan, and John Monaghan being able to enjoy rounds of golf at Cape Kidnappers plus accommodation at Te Mata Lodge in Havelock North.
