Morning everyone,

Can’t believe it’s the 1st of March already!!!

Te Marua Mid – Week Men v Levin Vets Report..

In November 2018 MW Men visited Levin where the day turned out fine and the course was in great shape. The first round ended with Te Marua 32.8 average Stableford points and Levin slightly ahead with 35.27 average.

On Thursday 21st February 2019 the second round was played on a very warm and cloudless day held at Te Marua with a very strong team arriving from Levin. Te Marua ended up holding onto the trophy with a very slim margin. Te Marua average Stableford points 38.5 and Levin 34.5 a total of both rounds Te Marua 71.30 Levin 69.77 – so close!!! Notable performances from Te Marua were Clive Dunstan 45, Duncan Forman 44, Harvey McGown 40 and Peter Stone 39 Stablefords. From Levin Peter Clarke 43, Russ Baldwin/Ivan Franklin and Martin Wallace all with 36 Stablefords. Dave Edhouse said a great day was enjoyed by all. AWESOME MWM!!!!

Raffle Winners for $50.00 were Dave Render, John Heka and Mark Girling.

It has been noticed by a lot of club members the amount of cigarette stubs that have been on the greens plus the fairway lately, I don’t really have any suggestions except maybe reframe from putting them out definitely on the greens, or carry a container to put stubs in, kept in your golf bag.

Division 3 played at Masterton on Saturday and lost 13-2. Team of the day went to Dean and Tiri who picked up their only 4 ball point. Player of the day was shared between Kayne and Steven Dearns both getting half a point each. Bluey of the day went to Ian Mawdesley, After 4 away games the boys are looking forward to playing at home.

Round 3 Twilight teams results are 1st Professionals 70 points, 2nd Chemically Enhanced 67 points (on countback from Bogeyman), individual 1st John Eggleton Bogeyman 24 points c/b, 2nd Jason Robinson Loose Screw 24 points.

Winner of the Hui Ngaparu on Waitangi Day was Peter Gallen 64c/b, runner-up was Kane Lloyd 64.

Winner of the Lil Parkin Trophy on Waitangi Day was Robyn Smith 47, runner-up Kim Abrahams 43.
