Hello Golfers.

BEEF & BURGUNDY THIS FRIDAY 10 MAY. We have some spaces available – don’t miss out! Get your entries in pronto.

The weekend competition was Par on 4 and 5 May – on Saturday there were no entries. On Sunday, the Birds Nest money came in and went straight out again. Congratulations to Emily Loughnan who got Twos on #6 and #8. Tony Taylor also got a Two on #6. 1st in the Par round was Seamus O’Sullivan, 2nd George Kirk, and 3rd Malcolm Bridge.

This weekend the Saturday and Sunday comps are Medal/Putting and Rounds 7 and 8 Shoot Out.

Men’s Interclub results Saturday 4 May – Div 2 were at home to Te Marua scoring a hard fought 7/8 result. While not the most desired outcome they are still top of the table, 4 points ahead of 2nd place. Div 10 was away at Te Marua winning the round 8.5 / 6.5. An awesome result that solidifies them at the top of the Division 10 table, 6 points ahead of 2nd place. With two rounds to go, both teams are still in the running to win their divisions, come on Martinborough!!!

9-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 1 May – Round 3 of the Sue Bunt Salver saw Alison Russell 1st with Net 27, 2nd Mary Herrick Net 30, and 3rd Sherryl Howie Net 34. Sherryl also got a Two on #12. The 9 Hole Par 1st also went to Alison Russell 6, 2nd Mary Herrick 5, 3rd Sherryl Howie 0. The Southey Honda tournament had a great turnout yesterday with lovely weather. Results to come next week.

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 1 May – The huge scores continue to be recorded … 1st Rosie Collins with 43 Stableford points, 2nd Louise Smith on a countback from Jenny Wilkie 42, 4th Jaquee Reid with 41 and Kelly Taylor with 40. Twos were scored by Julie Dondertman & Jaquee Reid (what a season you are having!). Closest to the pin was Sarah Monaghan & Angela Busby, and closet to the wiggly line on #14 was Nicola Warren.

The big news The National Team event was played on Friday 3 May at Te Marua and our entrants did us proud! There were 13 clubs represented and Team Martinborough – Sandra Petersen/Honor Clark & Jenny Wilkie/Deidre Thomsen came 2nd! with a total of 139 net points (winners 135). Sandra/Honor had 68 and that put them in 3rd place in the pair division. These are fantastic results so congratulations from us all. The format is 4 ball better ball nett stroke play. The first, second & third place teams get prizes, but we do not know what they received but hopefully they can report back on Wednesday. The best score is compared to the other NZ districts and the lowest wins a trophy (hence the title national teams!).

Pennants We played in wonderful conditions on the testing Boulcott’s Farm course. Martinborough 1 played Te Marua – Sandra Petersen/Carol Parkinson and Sarah Monaghan/Marie Scrimshaw won their 4BB, Sandra, Carol won their singles matches and Jenny Wilkie had a half. Martinborough 2 Ju Allen/Karen Shaw and Nicola Warren/Jaquee Reid won their 4BB, Ju had a half, Felicity Warren, Nicola and Jaquee won their singles. We have one more round to play on Monday 6 May … Best of luck to all the players.  Looking at the leaderboard, our handicaps and the number of shots to give has taken its toll and neither team will be in the final.

Landsdowne The final round was played on Saturday 4 May and Anna Possenniskie, Deb Donaldson& Sandra Petersen all won their singles and Deb/Sandra won their 4BBL.

Thursday Club – Stableford results from Thursday 2 May – 1st Johnny Gray 39, 2nd = Ro Griffiths, Shane Hislop, Bevan Sweeney all on 37, 5th = Bob Lindberg, Martin Napier, Ed Elworthy all on 36.
