Congratulations to everyone involved in running the 2018 Te Marua Masters. By all accounts, another successful tournament with some excellent scoring and close competition. Great to see.

This year’s tournament ended with only 2 shots separating the winner in the Men’s Senior and only 5 shots over the top 7 placings. A similar story in the Intermediates and Juniors with winners making it by only 1 shot and only half-dozen or so shots across the first 10 places.

The Women’s competition was a little different with the winners separated by 3 shots in the Silver Division and ….believe it or not, an amazing 13 shots in the Bronze Division.

Great to see some of the Wellington region’s top golfers participating in our tournament which is the 1st Round of the WGI 2019 Order of Merit competition. We wish them luck for their 2019 season.

Special congratulations must go to our own Ange Walsh and Denis Kenealy, 2018 Te Marua Masters Champions in the Women’s Bronze and Men’s Junior Divisions respectively. Fantastic result !

The 2018 Te Marua Masters Champions are
SILVER                       Darae Chung (Shandon)
BRONZE                     Ange Walsh (Te Marua)

SENIOR                       Caleb Kahui (Wainuiomata)
INTERMEDIATE        Murray MacGibbon (Greymouth)
JUNIOR                       Denis Kenealy (Te Marua)

Full results can been seen at 40th Te Marua Masters

Thanks again to the tournament organisers and their helpers and to all participants for supporting the event and making it another great success.

Afternoon everyone,

It saddens me deeply to share with you all the sudden death of Peter Stewart, he has been unwell for the good part of the year but still managed to play golf until a few months ago, I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago to see how he was, we had a funny but great chat, some of the MW Men went to see him the last few days and told me how unwell he was. He was a great member of the club always helping out and very loyal. “Rest Easy Peter” the club’s condolences go out to his family and friends.

Golfer of the Year is Wayne Turner and Runner-Up Michael Baines – congratulations to all participants

Steve Dearns got a hole in 1 on #2 on the 30.11.18 – congratulations
