Morning everyone,

Te Marua Golf Club’s condolences go out to all members and their families effected by the Christchurch event, I know there is a few of you that have been directly effected, plus we are thinking of members and their families who are generally unwell with illness or recouping after an operation also.

YOUR PROGRAMME BOOKS ARE IN THE OFFICE FOR PICK-UP. – Thank you to everyone that worked on them!!

Great to see some All Blacks playing here on Monday for a round of golf, the Barrett boys plus Ricky Riccitelli with team mate from the Hurricanes Ben May.

Winner of the $50.00 raffle was Clinton Codyre and ME!!!

Please support the Car Park Raffle, it has been decided to have only 50 tickets at $10.00, please remember it is a fundraiser for the CLUB!!!

Sunday 31st March is Halberg day, we will be selling the Halberg raffle $5.00 a ticket 1st prize Golf Bag, 2nd Prize Dinner Set, 3rd Prize Cap/Ball, which I hope to put out next week when the Car Park Raffle is sold.

Sadly we only have two results from our Interclub teams that played on Saturday.

Te Marua Division 6 had a home game against Mornington on Saturday and trashed them 14-1. Dominic Hazeldine played his first game for Interclub and had a win !! – congratulations Dom, and that 1 point you are all wondering who lost it, was all down to Rob McIntyre. – Awesome game Div 6. I have to apologise for printing the wrong oppositions team cards for Saturday ‘s Interclub games – DAM can’t believe I did that – must have been so excited having a weekend off!!!!

Division 3 played at Miramar and had a great result getting a 7.5 draw, and 20-10 on aggregate over the 2 games. They are now currently sitting 5th, the division is very tight with only 5 points separating 1st to 5th. Bluey went to Steve, with team of the day going to Jason/Vance with a 3 & 2 4 ball win, and player of the day going to Kayne with a 5 & 4 win. – Congratulation guys, a few good wins will have you at the top in no time.

This Sunday the Men have the second round of Strokeplay Champs, Mayer & Kean Cup, Don Hazlett Trophy, Matchplay Qualifying, Bolts Cup, with the 3th and 4th rounds being played on the 7th and 14th April.

The Organisers of St Patricks day would like to thank Te Marua Members for the use of their course on their Club Day and would like to express their overwhelming pleasure on the perfect condition of the course.

I would also like to pass on to the greenkeepers the great comments we have had in the office/shop how great the course is playing, we have had nothing but great comments on it plus of course how friendly the staff and members are.

The National Taxi Tournament organisers would like to thank Te Marua for the use of the course over their 4 day tournament, they also were very impressed with the condition of the course, loved the food and service from 19th Haven, plus would like to express their thanks to all staff and private cart owners for the use of their carts over the 4 days.

We have a 25% sale off all clothing items in the shop until the end of March, plus we have a rack of clothing items with 50% off. This of course excludes gloves and caps. It would be great for members to support the pro shop, a lot of pro shops on golf courses in the region have closed now, mainly because members don’t support them with cheaper buying elsewhere, DO YOU WANT THAT TO HAPPEN HERE!!! Thank you to the members that do constantly support the shop.

Below are Club members playing in our Mashie Team on Saturday at Trentham be there at 8.30 for a 9 tee off – Thanks to Dave Edhouse for filling in for them – Good Luck guys – bring home a win!!!!
