Matt’s Message: (Greenkeeper’s memo)

Thank you for your patience as the greenstaff work to clear areas that have had felled trees over the last week or two.

A reminder that it is wet underfoot and to take care when crossing bridges - please stick to the grated areas and beware of wooden edges which can get slippery when wet.

Over the weekend volunteer safety cards will be sent to volunteers to ensure you know the protocols we have put in place to ensure safe working for you when you are undertaking work such as “adopt a ditch”.

We are asking that each member take a green sand bucket full of sand to repair any divots that you may encounter. This is everyone’s responsibility - not just one person. Let’s work on this together - and make a real difference to our fairways.

9 Hole Women’s Interclub - Final Round

Monday the 24th of May’s weather brought rain and strong cold winds which meant Karori had to contend with surface water on some of the greens at Shandon. It was not a good day for golf! The Karori team had a 2 – 2 draw against Martinborough, who were bottom of the grade. Masterton won the grade. Karori shared second place with the Kapiti White team. Our team only lost one round this year and even then we managed to gain points. By carefully accumulating points through the rounds, we had a very successful season. Thank you to all who made themselves available throughout the season and to the convenor, Susan Wright for organising the team and reporting results to keep club members updated.

Wednesday Club Report

Glorious early winter weather (sunny no wind) was enjoyed by 27 Wed Club members but no-one bettered their handicap with some unusual tee-settings! Two members of the organizing committee topped and tailed the scores with Patrick Cordue the winner with 36pts and Mike Cox the most exercised at the other end!. Runner -up was Terry McAlister on countback from Keith Atkinson with 35, followed by Ian Bates and Satish Chandra each on 34 and Trevor Brown on 33pts. Trevor also scored a two (thanks for the balls Trevor) as did Satish. NTP was Ian who donated to the Pig and raffles were won by Mike Cox as consolation, Victor Diem returning from an injury lay-off and Martin Leung.
