The Weather hasn’t been to kind to our  Womens Captain in the month of April, Elaine has rescheduled more fixtures than the rest of us had to for the entire year due to the inclement weather on a Wednesday. Finally though mid month the sun shone  and there was very little space in the carpark by 9am. Whats more the Bar was open, a rarity on a Wednesday, thanks to the efforts of Marie Scrimshaw. Marie joins the Exclusive One Club  with a superb Hole in One on the 6th Hole, and naturally picked up the All Teed Up NTP on that hole.

The Weeks competition was  HPMC Stableford and was  won by Jenny Wilkie.  In second place was Ju Allen on a countback from Player of the Day Marie Scrimshaw. Congrats to you for holding it together to complete your round.  Elaine Sutherland got the only two of the day.  Cafe Medici  NTP No 8 was won by Elaine Howe.

There were twenty two entered into the Tuesday Grumpies. The competition was Stableford with 1st place going to Andrew Lawler on 38 pts. 2nd Adrian Blackett 37 pts.  Not sure what happened to the four who misplaced their cards, guessing they may have had a spot of bother.

The annual Southey Honda 9 Hole Tournament was held this year at Martinborough. This event has grown over the years and the organising Committee were very pleased to announce that Ann Renall, a Martinborough Member, took out the top prize on count back for the Best Nett competition from  Gill Neal (Masterton), 3rd Helen Ordish (Masterton), 4th Dianne Alexander (Masterton), 5th Jane Watts (Masterton) and 6th Gaylene Selby Neal (Martinborough).

We would like to extend our appreciation  to Southey Autoworld Ltd for their continued support of this event.

A couple of days later  the club hosted another successful St Johns Fundraising Tournament with thirty three teams of four competing. Thanks to the generosity of the sponsors and the willingness of those present to part with their cash come Auction time this event continues to be the success it is for St John Wairarapa.

Our Captain Guy Walmsley on behalf of the Club, took great honour in accepting an award, A Priory Vote of Thanks to the Martinborough Golf Club for their valuable assistance rendered in furthering the work of the Order of St John in New Zealand. The award  was presented after the Tournament by Eddie Jackson, St John Midland Chief executive on behalf of the Prior, Dame Patsy Reddy.

Over the past eight years the Golf Club has allowed St John to organise a charity golf tournament during the St John appeal week with all proceeds going to St John.

St John Wairarapa has benefited by receiving over $65,000 to further their work in the district.

Mens Interclub has been going great guns and after last weekend the lads are top of Division 6 Wairarapa Salver with three away rounds to go. The Selector was fizzing on Saturday afternoon after the lads stunning win at Home over Judgeford 14/1, this has propelled the team to top of the table by 14 points with three away rounds remaining.

These matches are all off the stick so sometimes the player can be the sacrificial lamb when the other selector puts you against their best player when you are usually down the list. In the Singles Chris Ranish 8/6, John Warner 6/5, Sheldon Mc Namara 6/5 and Randal Warner 6/5. Colin Whibley Smith 4/3, Mark Lucock 4/3, Alistair Boyne 4/3. Craig Andrews 3/1, Glen Schofer 1Up.

In the four ball John Warner and Sheldon 6/4, Chris Ranish and Colin Whibley Smith 6/5 Randal Warner and Mark Lucock 5/3, Craig Andrews and Glen Schofer 1 Up , Derek Stephen and Alistair Boyne 2/1.

On a sad note  a number of the Clubs members attended the funeral of Shirley Rattray, Shirley loved golf and was very handy with the putter winning the Putting Cup for a number of years. At the age of 84 she successful managed a hole in one on the 16th and whats more was featured on Page three of the Times Age , a feat no other golfer in the region has attained. Our sincerest condolences to Shirleys family and friends.
