Club Captains Report

Hello to all. Hope we are enjoying our golf.

Hello to all. Hope we are enjoying our golf.

Well done to the winners last week in the 2nd round of the Manukorihi Cup. There was some good golf from Shane Weir with 47 to go with his 45 which took the honours, so well-done Shane-O, great golf. John Chandler snuck in for second place, so well-done JC. Some good news was forthcoming as Robbie Busing had to pull out of the Purdie Cup which forced a reshuffle of the draw. SO, I don’t have to play Gary (the tiger) Fulton and give away 32 shots. Gary said I was scared to play him….I replied… NO it was only the 32nd shot that was a concern. The top sixteen sheet is up, so have a look at who you are playing and when, thanks.

Extra Xmas pop up competition on December the 15th. Yes, that’s right. Another Hamper will be held on the 15th December, same entry and prizes as the main Hamper….so contact JR and have a second go at getting a ham.

SPECIAL THANKS: Thanks to Marie Rayner for all the work she put in on getting all the prizes and raffles and making up the prize packs etc for the big day. Thanks to the rest of the team helping out on entry’s and bar, also out on the course. I do believe Mike (Waldorf) Let-him-in was out raking the bunkers at sunrise …. I didn’t happen to get in one but Mike did say that Statler was very grateful, …those guys just love each other, a real BROMANCE .

Our outgoing President, after six years, had the speeches and prize giving sorted. Thanks to all the hobbits that sold the raffles and battens … (THEY WENT VERY WELL). We need that support and help from club members on these big days. The course was in great nick and with the amount of 40pts plus scores it played great so well done team.

AGM 2ND DECEMBER. Don’t forget that we all have a say so please see if you can make it, bring up any issues etc. There is an open space in the vice club captain role, so if your keen or want to put in for any of the positions please get
