The season is over for the Premier and Senior Reserve teams, and what a season it was! Our Premier team made it to the Tui Cup Final, our first final in 24 year years…the last time we won was 26 years ago!

The Course has been under going some serious aeration and top dressing, the upside is the grass will grow, the weeds will be scarce and we should see a marked improvement on the fairways in the next few months. There has been the odd tree come down during the big gales however we have been very fortunate that damage has been mostly superficial.

The Martinborough Micros and Magic hockey teams.

We hope you all enjoyed a well-earned break over the school holidays as we head into the second half of the hockey season with all the flooding and snow hopefully behind us.

There are so many teams that it took over a month for the grading games to be completed! We have the Rockets playing in the Blue grade the Micros and the Magic both playing in the Yellow grade. These teams train on Monday lunchtimes at school under the careful guidance of Liz Larkin, Kiely Marshall and Kerry Campbell. The kids’ enthusiasm to get their stick on the ball is just fantastic – like bees to a honey pot! … Continue Reading
