Matt’s Message: (Greenkeeper’s memo)

Last weekend there the fairways were really in a bad way. There were divots (some as large as craters on the moon) left unsanded and not replaced. There were also a number of rather large divots taken out of the tee blocks. Please, please everyone needs to do their bit to rectify this and educate/remind if players forget.

Women - 9 Hole Interclub Results

For the latest round of this competition the team travelled to Otaki to play Kapiti White who are amongst the leading teams of the competition. The players were pleased to achieve a 2.5 -1.5 win, especially as ‘coast’ club teams do well on these courses because they are familiar with them. The Otaki weather was sunny and made for enjoyable playing conditions.
