Our last three trips have been a little like a set of traffic lights. The Red (stop) trip was cancelled due to bad weather, and the Orange trip to Winzenburg Hill didn’t quite actually get there , although it got close and the intention is to repeat that trip in the future now the party knows where they went wrong.
The Green trip was all GO, with perfect weather, great views over a satiny smooth Wellington Harbour, and evidence of an obviously successful trapping session on Possums in the last few days. … Continue Reading

The Under 11 & Under 13 teams have each had their first games under lights at Memorial Park, this was pretty exciting for them, and great for the parents who didn’t have a pile of muddy clothes to deal with.

The golf season has started off well this year. The prolonged hot, dry weather has allowed for a lot of the notorious golfing “summer run” and as a result has seen many members handicaps tumble. The recent rain has definitely greened up the course, and with coring having just been completed the course should start to play more traditionally. We welcome new green keeper, Richard Whisker, who has previous experience working on PGA tour courses and course development in Nigeria.

The Club has hosted a number of significant events in the last couple of months. Firstly, in March, the Wellington District Women’s 36 Hole Stroke Play Championship was held at Martinborough. Women’s Golf in the Wellington region has a good future if watching these teenagers is anything to go by. Julianne Alvarez, an 18 yr old from Manor Park playing off a +3, won the Miss M Young Trophy with a Gross 142, one over in the morning round and 5 under in the afternoon. … Continue Reading
