Club Opening Day & Patron's Day

Topic: General
Our Club Opening Day was held on Sunday morning - an Irish Stableford event for teams of 4.  On 6 holes only the best stableford score counted; on 5 holes - the best 2 scores; on 4 holes - the best 3 scores; and on 3 holes all stableford scores counted.
Over 100 teed it up with the Murchison Family winning the day by 8pts - Cullam, Justine, Sarah and Hannah on 102 pts.  The team of Mike Hearn, Dave Spangenberg, Mark Morphy & Mike Hyams had 94pts to finish 2nd.  Lawrence & Kira Schaffler did a great job putting the event together and we look forward to the same support for our other Sunday events.
The next one is Patron's Day on Sunday February 18th.  The entry sheet is the Golf Shop - please tick the box if you are staying for dinner afterwards.  This is a shot gun start at 12.30pm.  John and Cecily Rainger are our hosts and have generously contributed the major prizes - a watch for the winning man & some jewellery for the winning woman.  The event is open to all club members - regardless of category.  This event is also the qualifying round for the Dempsey Plate - a mixed match play event.
On Sunday February 25th John Fullford is managing a club visit to Mt Maunganui Golf Club.  This is the week after they host the Grant Clements Memorial Trophy, so the course will be in great condition.  It is an opportunity to re-new rivalries with the Mt Maunganui team who came up in November and took the trophy home with them!  John is under strict instructions to bring it back!  If you wish to play in this event please contact John Fullford.
