What a treat to have a lovely warm day for golf and to play a fun game of Bing, Bong, Bango. Those players with a great short game really can score well in this game.

Dot Bowers won the 9 Hole competition of nett plus putts. This Saturday the 9 Hole comp is nett and the 18 Holers play Par.
Unfortunately no golf played this week. Instead of a lovely spring day it was a bitter winter day.
Next week semi finals of the Manukorihi Cup will be played, Lesley v Marie, Joy East v Jo Foreman.
Others will play Par. 9 hole players will play Bing Bong Bango. Fingers crossed Spring will be here.
