Martinborough Golf Report 

December 19, 2018 December 2019, Sports Comments Off on Martinborough Golf Report 

As we move out of spring into summer, we can only hope that we might get more use of our umbrellas as shade from the sun rather than the incessant rain we’ve endured over the past couple of weeks.  

Tournaments: A few weeks ago we hosted the “Baahaahaa Trophy” with Eketahuna.  Men’s: 1st Steven Croft, 2nd Trevor Petersen & Michael Wyeth (Eke.).  Ladies – 1st Jane Terpstra, 2nd Karen Stephens, 3rd Mariana McDermott.  Martinborough beat Eketahuna (by the skin of their teeth!).  Seventeen couples entered the 36 hole mixed foursomes; Gross:- 1st Nuki Gordon & Sereana Phillips, 2nd Mr & Mrs DRIP.  Nett:- 1st Mr & Mrs Gumboot (who also won the Sunday stableford challenge with a brilliant 48 points AND put the winnings on the bar – Cheers guys!) 2nd Rick Hargreaves & Elaine Howe. Stableford:- 1st Ro & Lyle Griffiths, 2nd Mr & Mrs RD2. Thanks to sponsors Pain & Kershaw.  On 25th November, Martinborough hosted Royal Wellington at the home to contest the Bidwill Cup.   This golf match between Martinborough and Royal Wellington has been played every year for about 60 years.  Last year we played at Heretaunga and lost the cup pretty decisively.  This year on our home course we managed to win (by a narrow margin – but who’s counting?!). … Continue Reading

TUHIRANGI JAB RUGBY

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports Comments Off on TUHIRANGI JAB RUGBY

The 2018 Tuhirangi JAB rugby season has come to an end but we have had a great year.  We had approx. 45 children registered and they played across 6 different teams ranging from Under 6 Rippa through to the Under 13’s.

This year we had our own Tuhirangi Under 6 Rippa team, but the rest of our players had to combine with other clubs to make up the numbers.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Gladstone Rugby Club, Greytown Rugby Club and Martinborough Rugby Club for letting us combine with them to ensure all our JAB players could play in the appropriate grades. … Continue Reading
