Morning everyone,

Finally – no rain, beautiful up here today.

Status of the course for the weekend is:

We had no flooding – so compliments to the awesome team behind the river work that was done, twice now we have had heavy rain with great results of no flooding.

We however like most areas in the Valley had a lot of surface water, once it stopped raining it drained very quickly.

Please REMEMBER greenkeepers do NOT mow in the rain, not only is this dangerous but against Health and Safety regulations.

So if you find the grass a little long tomorrow – please don’t come in the office and tell me!!

Saturday -OPEN for 18 holes, CARTS for top nine only, #2 is unplayable (too much surface water) so will be played on the Chipping Green.

Sunday – same as above – but carts for 18 holes for members only.

Winner of the $50.00 was Ray Randle. – congratulations

Thanks to Vance Plumridge (and team) for building the fence. You are AWESOME!!!

Division 5 had another great win away from home on the 25th March at Karori beating them 8.5 to 6.5. Te Marua now has a 12 point lead at the top of the table. Birthday boy Luke Holford got muppet of the day and Mark Jones player of the day with an outstanding 10 – 8 win. He was 1 under after 9 holes and shot 73. – AWESOME GUYS!!!!

Division 2 played Paraparaumu on the 25th March at home (Te Marua) and won 9 -6 AWESOME Win. Congratulations to Clinton Codyre who had 6 birdies on his way to winning his singles match 6 – 5.

Division 7 had to struggle with having Allan Old in their team who was teeing off #4, drove his ball onto the Ladies tee, the group was a bit unsure who Allan was playing for – Div 7 or the Ladies Mary Alward Interclub team.
