Martinborough Golf Report

May 15, 2019 May 2019, Sports No Comments

As autumn rolls away into it’s last month and we embrace winter; the nights are getting longer and although this last week has been pretty mild, the colder weather is keenly waiting in the wings!!  Hopefully you’ve swept your chimney out and might have enjoyed some nights in front of the fire – remember the club are selling cords of firewood to raise money for the club, so get in there and order yours today.  The greens have been cored and are already bouncing back incredibly quickly – special thanks to the group of guys who volunteered to step in and helped the greens staff with the process.

Grumpies winners this month have included:- Phil Reid, Ray Matthews and Malcolm Bridge.  

9-holer winners have included:- Tingay Davidson (twice) and Adrienne Sisson.  They went to Masterton Lansdowne to play in their annual Southey Honda Trophy Tournament – unfortunately the main prize stayed in Masterton this year but a few of the prizes were taken out by our girls; nearest the pin – Tingay and longest drive Elizabeth Goodall.

Ladies winners have included:- Pamela Messervy, Susan Dinnison, Marion McKenzie and Georgie Wadey. Unfortunately, the ladies have been plagued by a number of pennants matches being abandoned due to bad weather – generally after they have turned up at the opponent’s courses – better luck going forward ladies!!

Thursday Club winners have been, Johnson Williams, Tony Taylor, Davis Lester Clarke, Keith Rayner & Shane Hartnell – they are holding a ‘Friendship Tournament’ on 16th May – come along!

St. John’s tournament was held mid-March and despite a few optimistic weather forecasts the day was pretty damp and cold!!  There were some amazing scores out there, but the 1st prize went to Team Vegas on 52.62, 2nd Peppers Parahua on 53.5 and 3rd Team Enumerate on 55.125.  Thanks to all the sponsors, of which there were many, but special thanks to the farmers who donated the meat for the prizes & the BBQ, Scotty the Butcher for processing them, and the Lion’s boys for cooking them!!! Thanks to Carl for auctioneering and Terry Blacktop for his awesome organisation of this great golf day for a brilliant cause – the funds raised were in excess of $7500.

Weekend golf winners have included:- Davis Lester Clarke, Charlie Fairbrother and  Stu Taplin. 

Captains’ trophy is up to 4th round and matches are as follows:- Doug Fergusson v Terry Blacktop, Kevin Williams v Steve Croft, Brian Russo v Darren O’Dwyer and Craig Andrews v Tora Boyne – good luck to all those still in the chase!!  Men’s interclub are doing well with Div 5 team still in the lead and Div 11 still doing very respectably!

Beef & Burgundy Ambrose Tournament coming up Sunday 12th May – see Sue in the office to check if places are still available!! 

Unfortunately, the Featherston 54-hole tournament was postponed due to bad weather over the latter half of the Easter weekend.

Enjoy the last months of Autumn, stay warm, look after you and yours; and good golfing everyone!!
