Martinborough Golf Round Up for September

October 14, 2019 October 2019, Sports No Comments

The winning Lamb & Chardonnay team (from left) Shane, Craig, Scotty & Nige.

As the first month of Spring passes us by, we’ve enjoyed some fine weather and endured some stormy weather.  The huge winds toward the end of the month brought a large number of trees down and left debris covering the course; as usual a wonderful army of guys rallied with their chainsaws and tools of the trade to clear the course and make it safe and clear.  Although it was sad to see the big mac go on the corner of the 17th I must admit the view from the white tees is more appealing now!!

Grumpies winners this month have included Phil Reid, Griff Page and Bill Jago.

T he ladies club champs have been in full swing in the month of September – unfortunately the results will have to be printed in the next edition!  They attempted to retain the Cotter Rose Bowl but the Masterton girls used their home advantage, our girls came second.  The Wairarapa 4 ball best ball was played and Debbie Donaldson will have har name put on the trophy again this year for having the best gross score of 78 along with her partner, former Martinborough Club member, Pip Smith (nee Kirk). Wednesday winners have included Sandra Petersen, Adele Cairns, Julie Weber and Nicky Warren.

Thursday Club has only been rained off once, winners have been Doug Clark, Tony Taylor, Sandra Petersen and Sky Elworthy.  Doug also too out the special accolade of managing to get three two’s in one round – nice work!

The men’s 36 hole tournament was played and gross winners were  0-10 John Warner, 10-17 George Kirk, 18-25 winner was Scotty the Butcher; the Nett winner was George Kirk.  

The ever-popular Lamb & Chardonnay tournament was held with a full field in supreme conditions; the formidable team of the butcher, the builder, the plumber and the farmer (Scotty, Shane Hartnell, Nige Malneek & Craig Colton) rose to the occasion again and once again took out 1st prize….there were rumours around the course that the plumber had lost all his form and the farmer was taking up the slack….but whatever they did they brought home the bacon….and the lamb…and the chardonnay!!  

2nd Team Kayne Martin, 3rd Pete Griffiths, Honor Clark, Richard Mills & Mrs. DRIP, 4th Team Steve Fenell, 5th Team Alex Waters, 6th Team Nick Morison, 7th Team Stone & Feathers, 8th Team Doug Clark, 9th Team Kris Chamberlain, 10th Team George Kirk.  Nearest the pins – Fraser Smith, Tony Russo, Owen Lloyd, Kayne Martin.  Thanks to the brilliant Eastwood Motor Group for sponsoring a great day!!

Enjoy your October and the lighter mornings, the rugby games and the never-ending lawn mowing, take care of you and yours – and good golfing everyone!!
