Have your registered for the MASTERS yet????? Have a look at our website Tournament page to get all the information you need to know, the entry form is available through a link on that page or directly from TMGC Masters Entry Form, all players that play in the junior division you will be playing off the white tees this year.

All members, mostly from recurring bookings please let me know if you are unable to cancel your bookings after next Tuesday, Dot Golf have assured me that they have fixed the issue we have had with cancelling bookings, however this has not been a quick fix from them as they had to download more data into our system, so we might have a few members still unable to delete themselves from the bookings.

We still have a problem with the twos mainly due to rollover each week, but the Shootout has been sorted.

On the 6th December the Mid-Week Women are having a BBQ at Grahame and Maree Adams, 79 Cruickshank Road, from 6pm. All Te Marua women are invited, cost is $20.00 per person, bring you own beverages. Please pay Carole Medway, put your name on the list on the notice board. Mid-Week Women’s Trophies for the year will be presented.

I noticed in the weekend a member thought he was so good at golf he would play without his putter (which was in my office) I am not going to mention any names, but our Club Captain actually putted better without it, doesn’t really say much for his golf does it??

Great News!!! Gail is back next weekend – working the afternoon shift on Saturday and Sunday, then back into full duties in December.

What’s on this week:

Saturday – course available all day.

Sunday – Club day Austad Cup RD2, Golfer of the Year RD9.
