Club Captains Report
Hello to all. Hope all is well with you all.
So, as for results this week, well done to all winners and good luck in the Matchplay finals on June 8th for the remaining matches.
Well done to Bing who had a win over Richard in the intermediates and Peter Loppy over Mike Leterman in the juniors. Good to see a result.
Saturdays comp outside the matches was net and some good scores were recorded.
0-18 division seen a welcome return to form from Robbie Busing with a par round (63 net). Way to go Robbie, well done. This was closely followed by a 65 net by Gavin Mita who has had some form of late as well. Next was N loppy, P Rauputu, M Peterson and old CHOP CHOP BUTLER. Well done lads.
19 up division saw M Burkhart on 64 net and a couple of raffles too. Good day Mike.
Richie “Rich” Ransfield came in with a 65 and then, my partner on the day, Jim Newlove on a 68 with a classy birdie on the 16th to take the Beer off The Boss Ian Titter and his twin brother Bruce the Builder.
It must be noted that Jim was told the beer price had gone up (not) and then he was on fire. He must have forgotten his wallet.
Special thanks to Waldorf for walking 36 holes for his buddy Statler and that’s a true BROMANCE rite there.
Can we all please start making payments for the boys’ trip away. Catch up with J.C and if you put money in please put your club number and name on the transfer. The bank number is on the sheet on the notice board.
Kaitake have a 2ball best ball on the 25/26 this month if you are keen.
This week is a spare match play and a net comp so all the best for that.
NOTE: 3 MINS is now the time limit for a lost ball. If you think it is lost or up one of JRs TREES then hit a provisional. The pace of play has been good, let’s keep it up.
We are going to have a new promotion on Sundays over the winter months and we are calling it FUN DAY SUNDAY at 10-dollar green fees for the day. We are after some marketing ideas to promote the club’s profile so please if you have any ideas get them in.

PRICE IS NOW $4.00 AND TWOS $1.50, everything else the same.
We will be trying TWO starter sheets, hcps OF 0-18 DIVISON ONE and 19-UP DIVISON TWO so there will be TWO SHEETS. Please put your name on the correct sheet.

Another lovely day for golf but the course has changed with the rain. Not so much lovely run and dirty gear again, but winters coming and we better get used to it.
There were 2 matches played with the 9 Holers and Frances and Dot were the winners.
The 18 Holers played Bing Bang Bongo which was a lot of laughs. Joy A was the voucher winner with 25 points.
The 2s were drawn and it must have been Joys day as she along with Rhonda won a voucher each.
The raffle was won by Robyn. Well drawn!!
Next week we are playing LGU & Home Pennant and the starter is Bev.
Don't forget the Trading table.
PRO – TIP
Keeping your clubs & shoes clean is an important part of your confidence & shot making. Feeling good on the first tee starts with your equipment.
Wash the grips regularly with warm soapy water, you’d be amazed how they feel afterwards. It also prolongs their life.
Have a towel on your bag & wipe the face clean after each shot. When on the putting green after you take a practice swing wipe the face in case you pick up some grass cuttings on the face.
Grass between the ball & the face would deflect it & you’d be certain to miss !!!
If you want to play your BEST KEEP YOUR EQUIPMENT CLEAN at all TIMES !!!
Good Luck & Good Golfing.
