It was good to see 28 teams out yesterday playing in the Martinborough Kindy Fundraiser Ambrose – it wasn’t the warmest of days but everyone seemed to enjoy their day and the platters after golf were greatly appreciated.  Thanks to everyone’s generosity they managed to raise $9,000.  The results were as follows:

1st Nigel Malneek, Scott Reid, Shane Hartnell & Craig Colton 54.62, 2nd Harriet Gibson, Brooke Gibson, Joshua Pepperell & Bruce Kauika 57.12, 3rd Ailsa Malneek, Shayne Hammond, Rob Smith & Jason Shaw 58.25, 4th Doug Clark, Honor Clark, Olivia Clark & Austin Skelton 58.25, 5th Tim Fenwick, Kirk Saunders, Tavita Isaac & Mark Childs 60.12, 6th George Kirk, Pip Smith, Andrew Smith & Hunter Smith 60.37, 7th Matt Gloag, Stu Taplin, Matt Thomas & Carl Petersen 60.50, 8th Alistair Boyne, Kheinan Morrissey, Byron Hegglin & Ryan Sewell 60.75, 9th Steve Lochrane, Roydon McDermott, Callum Crane & Andy Rogers 61.37 and 10th Dan White, Josh Hawkins, George Fenwick & Glen Schofer 61.62.  Nearest the pins went to Marion McKenzie and Glen Schofer and nearest the wiggly line was Vern Anton.

On Wednesday the 18 holers played a Par round with Marilyn MacKenzie winning on -3 and Sandra Petersen -5.  Nearest the pins went to Sandra on #6 and Sarah Monaghan on #8.  Sandra was the only one to get a two.

The 9 holers played Sue Bunt Nett/Shoot Out/LGU with Debbie Coom leading the way with nett 39 and Jill Murphy nett 40.

Thursday Club had a good turnout with Trevor Petersen the winner with 41 points, Shayne Hammond & Mike Charteris 40 and Bob Schofield 38.   Twos went to Bob, Trevor, Mike, Malcolm Wood, Shane Hislop and Sandra Petersen.  Bob Lindberg got nearest the pin but didn’t manage to get his two.

The weekend competitions were Medal/Putting and Shoot Out.  The winner on Saturday was John Warner 72 and Chris Brooks 73 and John also won the putting with 26 putts.   Guy Walmsley had the only two of the day.  On Sunday the winner was Bevan Sweeney 69, Marilyn MacKenzie 70, Tony Taylor 72 and Jason Shaw 73.  Twos went to Dayle Harwood and Brian Russo and Bevan won the putting with 26 putts.

On Friday last week the Ladies played Rew & McCracken at Riversdale – this is a Wairarapa tournament where the nett scores are added together and the team with the best nett wins and this year Martinborough were the winners.  Congratulations to everyone who played.

This weekend is the final round of Tilson Salver at Mahunga and Martinborough are playing Castlepoint – go well girls!!

That’s it from me for another week.
