From the Course:

I want to start off this week’s email on some high points.

This week we had 2 visitors from Christchurch who played on Wednesday. They advised that they were recommended the course by friends, and they just wanted to let us know that they were impressed by the presentation of the course and the condition it is in.

In the past 2 weeks we have had 6 new members join. Their reasons for joining were:

‘Outstanding course, great staff and very friendly’

‘Absolutely amazing course, friendly staff and club camaraderie’.

‘Best course in the area, am recommending it to my friends’.

Looking out on the course today, it is amazing to see the changes that have happened over the past 5 months. Dan has worked tirelessly, along with William and the volunteers who clearly care for this course.

Now for the low points:

We have had another ‘deliberate attack’ on our greens.

We believe it to be the same person and we know that it is happening some time on Sunday afternoon. Because it is happening on a regular basis, we are going to be putting up cameras around the course to see if we can catch the culprit. I am sure you will all agree that this is necessary to find out who is deliberately damaging our course.

If you are out on the course and you see someone acting suspiciously, please let the Club Manager and/or a committee member know.


Course Superintendent’s arrival:

Please note the change of time. We are still having the welcome on Wednesday 5th July. The time is now 10am. Please gather from 9:45am for the whakatau (welome). A morning tea will be provided afterwards.


Booking a Tee Slot:

Thank you to all those that are booking and coming into the clubhouse (when its open) to check in.

Please can I ask that you ALL book a tee slot online or by phoning the Club on (04)476-733 or emailing the club on . I appreciate that at times when you look online, there are a lot of free tee slots so you think there is no need to book. However, the booking system serves as a way of knowing how many people are playing on the course, who is on the course which is important should there be an accident or event and we need to account for everyone.

9-hole Midweek Ladies Report:

We had another small turnout for our last Medal competition before the playoff in November.  Congratulations to Elizabeth Wagner who won with a nett 33 on countback from Chris Suggate. Once again, the weather was really mild and the playing conditions were encouraging.

Wednesday Club:

Seventeen golfers, including a visitor, Mitch from Germany, played in difficult conditions in a Par competition. The weather was misty to start and the rough very wet. When the mist lifted a fine day was revealed. Patrick was the winner on +2 with Bob Cavana second on all square. Chris Pearce was nearest the pin and had to pay the pig. There were no twos. Bob Cavana won the raffle with Graham Crocker second.
