Club Captains Report.

Hello to all. Hope we enjoyed the fine weather and keep the suntan slapped on….

Once AGAIN Welcome to all the new members and everyone please make yourself known to the new members

The mass starts. We don’t have the twos or jackpot twos. But we are going to start that up and will have a $2-dollar entry cost to the twos including jack-pot twos for those who wish to try their luck so next mass start bring some change.

Well done to the winners of the Barbra Sharrock on Saturday.

Helen Watt and Rob Fraser took out the trophy so well done to you both.

This week sees the HONE HEKI CUP round 1 of 2 this is an eclectic so best nett per hole over two rounds. Let’s see if we can beat the dart this year team…..

Pennants teams have played their first round of the 2020 year and results as follows -

  • Seniors played at Hawera and NO WIN

  • They had a good win over Te-Ngutu 3.5 to 2.5 well done boys good first up result.

  • Manu 1 Went down 6 – 3 hard luck boys next week.

  • Manu 2 had a good win taking on the home team at Mania and got home 5.5 – 3.5 so that’s was a good win out there.

Next week Seniors and Manu 2 are at Westown and the Seniors take on NP White and Manu 2 Vs the cheese makers from Eltham.

Manu 1 at Opunake Vs Hawera so that’s a tough one out there and Gary keep your eyes on the game NOT the SHEEP.

Our Young up and coming star Kingston played again and is going very well.

Don’t forget folks subs due.

Also, can we all check the raffle sheet for meat packs to be picked up as they are in the freezer and it needs a clean out thanks.

Shoot out is up and running so please get you money into Ian Titter BEFORE YOUR ROUND… so you can be in …as your score won’t be counted if you haven’t paid or made arrangements with the Big Boss. Ian has some midyear comps for the shoot-out players so keep an eye out for that and this will give everyone one who enters a chance to win a little even if they don’t make the cut.

Cheers Ian for running this again top job as always…..

Thanks, and good golfing.

Your Club Captain Lofty.

ALWAYS TRY to BRUSH THE TURF, if you do you will never top the ball!! Now read that again because all amateurs top the ball & it costs you shots every time. Easy for me to say but not always easy to do. A great routine is always to take 1 practice swing & try to brush the turf or take a divot. (It’s the same thing.) The practice swing is a rehearsal of what you are about to do, so by brushing the turf or taking a divot you are allowing the loft of the club to lift the ball. Do it on your practice swing you have given yourself every chance of doing the same swing on the ball. To improve – ALWAYS TRY to BRUSH THE TURF.

Good Luck & Good Golfing.

Professional John Garner.
