An annual favourite, the Beef & Burgundy Ambrose held on Friday 10 May, saw a great turnout in favourable conditions (thank goodness it wasn’t the previous day when winter arrived with full force!) 

Top honours went to the team of Michael Bing, Shane Colton, Tiawharangi Aranui, and Lisa-Marie Ireland with a Net score of 56.25. The Women’s Longest Drive was Sandra Petersen and the Men’s, Owen Lloyd. Nearest the Pins: #6 Brock Shute, #8 Tiawharangi, #12 Carol Parkinson, and #16 Zeb Livingston. 

Thank you to everyone involved and sponsor: Eastwood Motor Group. 

The ever-popular Grandmas and Grandpas tournament on Sunday 19 May saw a good turnout of both. The Grandma winner was Marie Scrimshaw and the Grandpa Richard Pither – their grandchildren will all be proud. The non-Grandma winner was Nicola Warren and the non-Grandpa Guy Walmsley.

On the same day the Ngahau Trophy was played for, provided to the club by June and Guy Hume as a competition amongst the Committee, Ladies Committee, Staff, Administrators, and Life Members. Ngahau was the name of the Hume’s Pirinoa farm and coincidentally 19 May was the day that June and Guy married in Sydney during WWII. The trophies were to recognise the work that these members do for the club on a voluntary basis.

Jane Terpstra (daughter) was on hand to present the prizes and provided a fitting tribute to her parents and their involvement in the club and Martinborough community. Both winners happen to be the captains: Nicola Warren (ladies captain), and Andy Morison (club captain).

Congratulations to both mens interclub teams. Division 10 won the division and will move to Division 9 next year and Division 2 were runners-up. Well done all the members who represented the club.

The ladies teams were not so successful due to handicaps plummeting during the summer dry which created big challenges when playing at clubs with watered fairways – better luck next year. A big thanks to all the ladies who represented the club under trying conditions – hold your heads high.

All interclub teams travel around the region to as far as Otaki to play matches so not only thanks goes to all for playing but also their commitment to the club which can sometimes mean a very early start.

The clubhouse build continues to progress well (in fact a bit ahead of schedule!).
