Morning everyone,

Another lovely day up here, a bit chilly.

Winner of the $50,00 raffle was Dave Anderson, Kerry Baines and Clive Dunstan – congratulations to you all.

Great news Our Te Marua Division 2 Interclub Men’s team took out 1st place with Boulcott beating Paraparaumu on Saturday.

Men’s Interclub is the best result our club has had with three teams finishing 1st and 1 finishing 3rd, plus we can’t forget our Women’s Interclub finishing first also in the Mary Penrose Salver, first year for this Trophy and very fitting that Te Marua was the first to win it – Our Mashies Team is half way through their competition and placed second. Again congratulations to you all!!!! You are AWE-INSPIRING!!!!

Saturday 17th June all Men’s and Women’s Interclub teams will be playing here teeing off at 8.30am #1 and #10, please come up and join them in the celebration of their achievements for a job “Well Done” in their remarkable placings in their divisions.

WOW!!!! What about our Women’s team who played in the National Teams Event that was played at Te Marua on the 12th May, we hosted about 30 team from Wellington Clubs competing for the best of the best, and OUR TEAM came first equal, sadly due to a countback they were regulated to second place, what a tremendous effort from Chrissy Doughty, Ange Walsh, Mary Penrose and Carole Medway – what a wonderful achievement – just AMAZING!!!!

Start Sheet for Saturday 3rd June is now open for you to book!!

Porirua Club has sent a lovely letter to our club expressing their thanks for great service and accommodating them with a Marshall to explain where carts could and could not go, thanks to Jim Walsh for coming up early to explain to cart drivers the rules about the carts, and also keeping an eye on them to make sure they observed the rules, they were very thankful for the attention that was given to them plus to top the day off their meals from the café/bar were very tasty and filling.

Hired Carts will only be hired to Club Members until further notice. Rules for carts are still NO CARTS ALLOWED ON ANY OF THE FAIRWAYS, PLEASE DRIVE ON THE HIGH SIDE OF THE ROUGH, DO NO DRIVE ACROSS ANY FAIRWAY – I know for some of you this is a struggle, but we can’t expect the Green-Keepers to work hard on our Golf Course to have it looking and playing great for members, then for members not to do their bit to protect the course, we really need some wind to help dry the course out, and strangely enough we have not had any.

We have heard lovely comments about the course over the past months from visitors and golfers from other clubs, not only have we been complimented on the speed of the greens but also tranquillity and beauty of the course. As a member it is your job to look after your course by repairing divots by replacing and firmly stamping down the turf, repair all ball marks/pitch marks on the greens, keep trundlers off greens and tees. Thank you to all members that do this – you are true CARETAKERS of the club!!!

A Big AWESOME Thank You to all Cart Users for heeding to the new rules of the carts – the committee applaud your consideration. It has not gone unnoticed your effort to drive to the environments of the course.

Shifting of the Flag Pole is being organized and should be up shortly. Nigel Messenger is at the moment working on it by digging a deeper hole, he said so the pole doesn’t fall over and hit someone on the head, it better not fall over because it will hit my (or Di’s) car!!!!

A Big Thank You must go out to our committee who have certainly been pro-active, a lot of behind the scenes work has been going on, thanks also to the Mid-Week Men for their support around the club. You are all AWESOME!!!!
