Afternoon everyone,

Fine but cloudy up here today.

Good Luck to everyone who made the cut for the MatchPlay Championships Round 1. Please take note that from 8.00am to 9.14am Matchplay Participants will be teeing off #1, all club members will be teeing off #10.

Men’s 2017 Strokeplay Championship winner for the Intermediate grade is PAUL HENLEY ( 344), he had a playoff against Jim Walsh (also on 344), congratulations to you both!!!

Winner of the Fay Jones Trophy for the Women was Jan Tomlinson with 37 Stableford points – congratulations!

Te Marua members that are playing in the 2017 National Teams Event on the 12th May are Chrissy Doughty, Ange Walsh, Carole Medway, Mary Penrose, Audrey Messenger and Joanne Carson. – Good Luck Ladies.

Are there any members out there that are available for an hour in the morning to help as starters for the above event???, tee off time is 9.00am.

Winner of the $50.00 raffle was Chris Herbert and Gary Jackson – congratulations

The second supply of membership cards have arrived please make sure you pick them up this weekend.

Please remember everyone that uses a cart and puts it away when the office is closed, it is members responsibility to put the CHARGER IN, please think about members that have booked to hire them out the next day, if it is not CHARGED it cannot be used. It is a Privilege for members to use them outside the office hours – don’t spoil it for others and have this privilege provoked. This has only happen a few times, but the few times I have had all carts booked the next day which is embarrassing for staff to try and juggle who gets a cart because someone didn’t charge it from the night before.

Zane Wilkins had an enjoyable time at the New Zealand Maori Nationals last week, he won his first game which put him into the second round, he lost his second and didn’t get to go through to the top 4, he made the second group of top 16, not bad with over 300 entries. Great effort Zane!!!

Roaring Forties has purchased two NZ Flags this week.

Division 2 played Mornington at Te Marua and won 14-1, player of the day was the TEAM, except for Sam Iraia who only got ½ a point in singles, plus ½ in four ball, hence the 1 point Mornington got, this puts Division 2 to the top of the Division, it’s a good job they didn’t follow their captains example (Sam) – congratulations team – Awesome effort!!!

I’m pretty sure during Saturday I was told Division 10 won, Division 5 won, both these teams are leading their Divisions, plus Division 7 lost. Gosh we are really smashing the leadership board in some of our Divisions for men and women, congratulation to all teams, win or lose – you are pretty AWESOME!!!!
