Martinborough Golf Club has a national champion amongst our members! Congratulations to Leonie Wilde who is the winner of the Sue Bunt Salver, NZ Golf’s 9-Hole Women Home Links Competition. This is a Nett competition, whereby the best two of three Nett scores from nominated days are added together and compared to other scores from across the country – approximately 1300 members from over 100 clubs participated in the competition. Leonie’s combined Nett score submitted for the two rounds was 59, a whooping 13.6 below her handicap, and good enough to beat hundreds of other entrants. Leonie will be presented with the national trophy by the Wellington District Association, which she will hold for the year, and prizes from the event sponsor Srixon. We’ll let you know what goodies she receives. Well done Leonie!

The Martinborough Golf Course featured on national television a couple of Friday’s ago, being the mystery location where Sam the weatherman from the Breakfast show was hiding to give away a trip to Melbourne. The winners were Sarah and Matt, Sarah fittingly the daughter of Martinborough Golf Club members John and Cathy Taylor. It was great to see that some locals won the competition and the views down the 9th and 18th fairways looked pretty amazing with the sun rising.

The almost spring like weather has kept the course relatively dry, still allowing for a lot more run than normal in winter. The continual improvements being made to the course are starting to payoff, and the course really is in good condition for the middle of winter.

All Club days are being well supported, from Tuesday’s Grumpies, Ladies Day on Wednesday and Thursday Club. Saturday and Sunday competitions run every weekend which welcome all members and affiliated golfers.

The Men’s Club Championships start next week. The Bottle-O Lefties/Righties 36 Hole Tournament is also coming up on 16 August.
