Morning everyone,

Beautiful up here today.

Carts only 10-18, Chipping Green in play not #15 for Friday – back to normal on Saturday.

Welcome to our new members Richard Turner, Rob Wright, Dallas Whale, Jason Mokalei-Smith, Clive Allen, Bob Clouston, and Rob Rogers, I am sure our current members will make you feel very welcome to our Club and if any queries please do not hesitate to contact the office staff.

All members that operate carts please note – No carts allowed on any of the fairways, please drive on the high side of the rough, do not drive across any FAIRWAY!!!

Great results from our Interclub teams this year, Division 10 and 5 won their divisions, Division 2 is leading but depending on the results from two teams playing Saturday which will confirm their placing, (oh Sam, you are the Captain and you missed a three foot putt for ½ a point, that ½ would of made it a bit harder for Paraparaumu this week) Division 7 came from 5th to 3rd by beating Carterton 12-3, overall an AWESOME result from the Men’s Interclub.

Te Marua Men’s Interclub teams will be playing here on Saturday 17th June at 8.30 teeing off #10 and #1, with no doubt a lunch and few jubilation drinks afterwards, feel free to come along to congratulate the members of the teams.

Winner of the $50.00 – Yah finally me – thanks Tania for pulling Number 12 out!!!

Monday 26th June course will be closed for Seniors Tournament until the afternoon. (Reserve day Monday 3rd July).

Please take note during the winter months (June, July, August) the office hours over the weekend are shortened if the weather is bad and no-one is booked on course. So you are not disappointed please ring first to see if there is attendance if specifically calling in to the office/shop.

From Match Committee!!

1. Hazard pegs- #4 and #5 – The pegs around the pond on #4 are marking the pond as a hazard. The area to the right of the pond is ROUGH – for a ball lost in the pond, drop another at or behind the point of entry. For a ball lost in the ROUGH, play another ball from the original position (e.g. #4 tee).
The pegs on the LEFT SIDE of the 4th Blue Tee block mark a hazard area which [in theory] only comes into play for the 5th hole. It is separate from the pond hazard on the 4th hole.
All of which means the area between the bottom of the path in front of the 4th Tee along to the pond on the 4th hole IS NOT HAZARD.
Apparently some of our number have been lining up the Red pegs at the end of both those area and deeming the area between them as hazard – that is incorrect – that area is ROUGH.

2. The temporary / practice / chipping green beside #18. By now everyone should be aware that this green is our emergency green. Consequently, please look after it. This request is aimed particularly at those who play longer range shots into the green and leave it full of ball marks. You are free / entitiled / welcome to make full use of that green, but you are entrusted with making sure you leave it in a better state than you found it. Thank you.

3. Course Records – After some serious thought, discussion and consideration, the Committee has agreed that, effective 1st June 2017, scores for rounds played at Te Marua and bettering the current course record will be recognised even if placing is/was available, in any form. If the record score is achieved when placing is available, the record will be noted accordingly.
