Afternoon everyone,

Te Marua Greenkeeper, Dave Sully gets an updated vehicle.

Dave is a happy man and thankful his new vehicle came just in the nick of time, the old Ford wagon was about to haemorrhage due to old age.

Thanks to Kevin of Upper Hutt Cars Sales he now has a reliable vehicle that will last a while. When we approached Kevin for help he never hesitated and gave us a great deal, then Dzine signs helped with the signwriting.

Thanks to Upper Hutt business supporting Te marua Golf Club.

Thinking of all club Member’s and their families that are unwell. We hope you have a speedy recovery and hope to see members back playing golf soon.

The Green-keepers are obviously in the committee’s good books because now they have got a new Golf Buggy also, no wonder Dave Sully has a smile on his face.

Upper Hutt Produce and Co Limited is another one of our sponsors, they have sponsored us for a number of years and are situated at 12-14 Queen Street, Upper Hutt. Upper Hutt Produce are local providers in the Garden Supplies category, established in 1959 ten years before I was born (haha). It is one of the oldest stores in the city. Alan Rau started his work with the business as an 11 year old after school and in the holidays, working for his father James, in what was Hazelwood’s Grain and Seed. In 1965 Upper Hutt Produce moved to its present location. If you are on the look out for grain and seed, dry food during the winter, and garden supplies in the summer like sprays , fertilisers, seedlings this is the place to go. Please support our sponsor Upper Hutt Produce Co Limited.

Winners of the $50.00 are Ian Sherwin, Paul MacDonald, Russell Oliver, and Lorraine Penny, again thank you for your support for the raffles, the proceeds for the last four sold went towards the rat traps around the course.

Please remember all CART OPERATORS if there is a bad frost in the morning you will not be able to use your cart, when you drive on it breaks the grass and carts leave burn marks on the course. I have checked Saturdays weather the frost is not meant to be as bad as today, then again the sun is going to come out later tomorrow than today. Please remember also the call will be made on frosty mornings by shop staff to go off #10 if necessary for the day, as the sun warms top nine quickly before bottom nine. We don’t make these decisions to upset you, they are made to look after your course!!!

Thanks to all cart operators for adhering to the rules on #7 and #8 this week – Keep up the good work!!!!

Good Luck to our Mashie team playing in Kapiti on Saturday 6th July, I’m pretty sure they are looking for one more player anyone keen????

Afternoon everyone,

To all members that are unwell, on the mend from injuries, or have lost family members we have been thinking of you and hope to see you back playing golf soon.

Good luck to all participants in the Ade Waddell Memorial starting on Sunday.

NO CARTS ON FAIRWAYS 7 & 8 OR TO CROSS TO OTHER SIDE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. USE PATH OR HIGH SIDE OF ROUGH. There is still a couple of members that use carts and don’t adhere to this ruling – It was noticed again during the week that one member drove right across to the other side hours after being told of the cart rules, as usual we are going to have a couple of members that will make it so much harder for the majority of cart users. I am not going to name and shame but you know who you are, next step will be no CART for you!!! Please take care of your course, thank you to the cart users that do!!!

Congratulations to our Mashie team that played against Trentham on Saturday at Boulcott. They had an awesome win 12-3. They are now firmly in 2nd position, with 14.5 points ahead of Trentham and only 5 points behind Pauatahanui, which has been unheard of in recent years. Next game at Kapiti on the 6th July. Awesome golfing guys!!!
