Club Captains Report
Hello to all. Hope we are all well and let’s hope we are almost back to normal….
Well we are slowly getting back into it and I hope you have had a chance to get out for a hit with the weather being fine.
We will be having a match committee over the next few weeks and will try to get our club match play up and going again from where we left it.
I know there may be some slight differences, as in currently you can take nearest point of relief in a bunker if you don’t want to use a rake and have ended up in an un-raked spot.
As for the 30 cm given putt… that is an option as we are NOT playing club competitions yet. BUT once we start up again the rule will be to putt out in nett comps and Stableford, but as per normal in match play you can give a put if you want to.
So until the rule change comes from NZ golf we can play the 30 cm given putt.
The club house will OPEN THIS WEEKEND AND FOOD PACKS WILL BE AT THE BAR FOR $5.00 EACH …but still we will have rules with hygiene etc. there will be some food packaged for purchase and we would prefer people to use pay wave etc. if you can please.
NB: A starting sheet will be up from now on so please don’t forget to put down your times for the next Saturday please.
Men can we all tee off the first please.
A TIME SLOT HAS BEEN ADDED TO ALLOW THE PLAYERS COMING OFF THE 18TH to play the 1st AND THEY HAVE RIGHT OF WAY THANKS.
SO first in first served FOR TIME SLOTS.
Pennants is back on!
We have one men’s team still in the hunt so well done Manu 2 they will be taking on Inglewood 2 at Mania GC on Sunday the 7th June, so good luck team and Chop Chop will get the team out ready to charge on.

PRO – TIP
PRACTICE is the way to save shots. 20 balls & your putter 2/3 times per week just 15 minutes each session will save you a shot at the week-end competition.
Next week practice the chipping & again you will benefit at the weekend. Only one lousy rotten stinking shot separates 1ST & 2ND.
So the simple way to improve & lower your scores is to PRACTICE !!
Keep Well & Stay Safe
Good Luck & Good Golfing.
Professional John Garner.
