The Martinborough Golf Club is in good spirits with club days and club competitions all being well supported. The Captains Trophy and Martin 4Ball club competitions in both the Women and Men divisions are underway for the year.

April has been a month of very successful charity events at Martinborough Golf Club. Firstly the St John Ambrose tournament which raised over $8,000, secondly a Pink Ribbon Breakfast that raised $1285 for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation and most recently the Martinborough Kindergarten Ambrose tournament on Anzac Day afternoon that raised over $5,000 for Kindy.
The Kindy fundraiser attracted 28 teams, many teams including Kindy parents and grandparents, and even past Kindy student, George Broom. Fun activities, including nearest the wiggly line, and guessing the weight of jellybeans in a jar were followed by an Irish raffle and an auction, which was expertly auctioneered by Graeme Howie. The top selling item was a framed and signed All Black photograph, kindly donated by the NZ Rugby Union.

It is great that the Club is able to host successful charity events that give so much back to the community.
The greens have been cored recently and are definitely improving all the time. The autumn sunshine has ensured that most club days and tournaments have been well supported throughout April.

Last but not least, congratulations to Rick Hargreaves who had a hole-in-one on the 16th hole a couple of Saturday’s back. Well done “Poppy”, the grandchildren will be very proud of you!
