Martinborough Golf Club

August 8, 2016 August 2016, Sports Comments Off on Martinborough Golf Club

The weather has generally been good for golf over the last month, apart from the odd blustery Sunday and damp week day, but nothing to deter the “keen” golfer. Twenty of our male members enjoyed balmy weather on their annual golf trip in Australia last month. This year the guys played four courses they hadn’t played before in the Coolum area, north of Brisbane, all with ‘water’ in their title! The trip went without a hitch, although a late bus to the airport almost delayed the homeward bound travellers. … Continue Reading

The netball season is shaping up to be an exciting one. All three of the Southern teams have improved dramatically throughout the season and it is impressive to watch. This is down to the hard work from the girls, the coaches/ managers and families that support every training and Saturday game. If anyone is interested in umpiring or coaching a younger team, please let Sarah Gadsby know through Martinborough School, 306 9602. … Continue Reading

July 25, 2016 July 2016, Sports Comments Off on Martinborough Junior Hockey Club Mid-Winter Update

The lighter green shirt with white detail and numbers on the back, together with our white socks, makes us stand out from the other green strips – and we no longer have to wear bibs or “inside out” our shirts when we play. … Continue Reading

Martinborough Golf Club

July 25, 2016 July 2016, Sports Comments Off on Martinborough Golf Club

The course is finally starting to play more like winter golf, with a lot less run on the fairway and no run if you miss the fairway! Members handicaps are starting to settle, with a number of members’ lowest-ever handicaps this summer creeping back out again.

The Ladies 18 Hole Open Day held on Friday 3 June was a great success. The course was literally sparkling as a light frost greeted a field of 60 players from  Carterton, Pahiatua, Shandon, Miramar, Masterton, Riversdale Beach, Judgeford, Napier, Dannevirke, Kapiti, Karori, Manor Park, Boulcott Heritage Farm and 19 of our own members from Martinborough. Excitingly the overall winner was relatively new Martinborough member, Louise Smith with a Nett 66. She shot a personal best of 94 off the stick, and won the Sherry Weatherstone Best Nett Cup for her efforts. … Continue Reading
