Martinborough Golf Report

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports No Comments

Spring sprang a leak early in September with many days being called off, and the course closing for a short time (for being underwater).  However the cold snap passed, the ground dried out and our intrepid golfers wiped down their trundlers, dried out their gloves and drove home some good results.

Grumpies winners this month have included Peter Price and Ray Matthews, hopefully Terry might give us a glimpse of their infamous ladies tee league soon.

The 9-holers have missed a couple of days due to inclement weather but made up for it on following weeks, winners have been; Gaylene Delby-Neal and Jan Fergusson. The Thurlowe 4BBB was won by Sherryl Howie & Billie Holmes.

The ladies have also had to play catch up this month; winners have been Marilyn MacKenzie and Carol Parkinson. The ladies finally beat the drought and beat Royal Wellington in the 50th playing of the Ladies Stout Tournament, Sandra Petersen had the top score – good on you Mrs Gumboot!

Thursday club has only been rained out once and winners have included Sir William Southgate, Chris Ranish (more than once!) and Bill Gordon. 52 players enjoyed the big prize tournament – well done Dougie, sponsors and crew for organising the event.

Weekend competition winners have included Chris Ranish, Julie Warner, Sandra Petersen and Stuart Taplin. 

The Lamb & Chardonnay tournament was a huge success as ever and was a scorcher day.  This year it was won by Nick Morison, Doug Vrame, James Blundell & Don McCreary – thanks to sponsors Eastwood Motor Group and all the bevy of help and support!

The AB Martin aka the ‘Divorce-a-ment’ (mixed foursomes) was played last weekend and the weather again helped make it a cracker of a day. Twenty four couples played and the winners on the day were Mr & Mrs Gumboot (Trevor & Sandra Petersen). No lawyers were required after match and fun was had by all – hopefully the same and more will put their names down for the 72 hole mixed foursomes first weekend in November.

And lastly, hats off to Bevan Sweeney who had his head shorn for cancer society on Daffodil Day at the beginning of the month, well…maybe hat on for a while! Sweenz and his Trackside co-workers raised in excess of $10k – nice work lads!
