This Sunday the Men have Strokeplay Champs, Matchplay Qualifying plus club trophies, I know you are all aware that members that use Carts the club has to hold your latest medical certificate no less than a year old for you to be eligible for some of these competitions, plus all members have to be financial. So please Do not be surprise if I disqualify you this Sunday if you do not meet these requirements.

The Car Park Raffles was won by Reg Caldow, he however has donated this back to the club to be drawn again, so I will draw it this weekend.

We now have the $2.00 raffle on Sale for a prize of $50.00 Cash.

Special thanks goes out to PAK N SAV, Upper Hutt who have been great sponsors this year not only for our Twilight Teams, but also for the Halberg Day, we would like to acknowledge our gratitude to Upper Hutt Pak N Save . You are AWESOME!!!!

Chris Brooks has lost his black Golf Ball Bag (I so have to say that correctly) it was put into the lost property bag and someone else has claimed it, so please if it is you just drop it back into the property bag or office.

Cart Users please reframe from driving up onto the tee blocks at #15, use your carts very careful around that area. If you see a roped off area, it means don’t go pass the area, NOT drive your carts around it!!!

Division 9 beat Trentham 10 – 5 on Saturday – Awesome!!!

Division 2 lost 8-7 to Karori. It was a hard fought match, lots of close matches that went down to the last hole, Karori prevailing in the end with the 8-7 victory. James Waluszewski had five birdies, (married life must be doing him good).

Division 3 has some tough matches in perfect conditions at home last Saturday, they mangered to sneak a 8-7 win over Kapiti. It’s not quite what they were looking for, but they are going all out to step up next round. Bluey went to Steve Heller with 6/5 loss, Player of the Day went to Steve Dearns with a 6&4 win, Team of the Day went to Tiri and Dean (fill in from Div 6) with a 3 & 1 win. Awesome Guys!!!!

Weekend LADIES Club Championships start on Sunday 14th April, I have a registration sheet in the office for all ladies to register.
