MARTINBOROUGH GOLF REPORT FOR THE STAR

November 17, 2017 November 2017 No Comments

A number of the gals from the District travelled up to Windross to watch Lydia and her pals competing in NZ first LPGA  Tournament. They put on a fine performance for the crowds, the weather unfortunately ruined Sundays viewing.
While back at home the  Club held the  Jennian Homes Mens 72/ 36 hole Strokeplay Championships, Big thanks to the Kahui family from Wainuiomata Golf Club for contributing six players to this tournament,four playing in the pure format and and two of the lads Dads playing in the 36 holes. 
The Spearman Burns brothers also returned, though they took the relaxed option playing in the 36 holes. A number of players from Royal Wellington also bolstered the numbers.
The Nett winners were the youngest and oldest competitors the field of 70 and both from Martinborough

The numbers of nine hole members is on the steady rise at Martinborough, we currently have 15 men and 40 women in our Clubs membership and these are a mix of new to golf and those who believe they may have run out of puff to swing a club and walk the 6 kms in a round. In saying that there are a bunch who play almost everyday, and while disappointing that there were no men competing this year it was great to see so many supporting the finals of our Nine hole Womens Club Championships. Sherry Howie and Jenny Tosswill kept the crowd entertained, Jenny Tosswill had her sister Debbie Coom on her bag and was under firm instruction from the family to keep Jenny hydrated and focused on the task at hand. Then a wheel fell off, literally I understand with Sherryls trundler, Katrina Burgess her caddie was quick to sort this mishap, for Sherryl the unwanted distraction did cause a wee lapse in concentration on that hole.  Jenny continued on to add more pressure on their close match and successfully won on the 16th hole. Congrats to you Jenny. 

The 18 hole women held their finals back in mid October. 

In the Silver Division the finalists were our number one and two seeds,  Pip Kirk and Kris Chamberlain, with Pip keen to retain the title, she started with two fine pars and birdied the 6th, though did provide Kris opportunities on the 4th, 7th and 9th, before settling down to the task at hand, Pips card revealing a further two birdies and 4 pars to finish the mornings round with an 80. At the break with a solid lead she comfortably won the Title on the 28th hole. 
In the Bronze A it was a tussle between Bindy Mc Leod and Carol Parkinson with Carol ahead by five after 27 holes, Bindy closed the gap before conceding on the 34th hole. The Bronze B regular weekend players Marie Scrimshaw and Emily Loughnan had an interesting match with this pairing going all the way to the 36th hole with Marie emerging the winner.  Jaclyn Kras and Mariana Mc Dermott played in the Vets Comp this year, it was a close match and with youth on her side Jaclyn sealed the title on the 17th hole. Congratulations to all the Winners.
The Mens Club Champs are down to the business end with the semi finals being played this week. Finals day is Saturday 18th November so please come down to the Club to view some good golf and support these lads, the winners will possibly be dusty and sore for Toast on Sunday.
