Morning Members,

Wait for it!!!! The 2019 Mashies Champions are (trumpets blowing) (feet stamping) TE MARUA !!! Yah Awesome work guys. On Saturday they played at Ohariu Valley, it was a very miserable day, they went toe to toe with Royal Pauatahanui for a 7.5 – 7.5 draw, we know that our team was leading the competition by two points, that left them two points in front and winners of the Mashies, for the 2nd time in 26 years. We are so proud of you, I know I gave you a hard time the beginning of the Competition with your slow start to put points on the board, but I couldn’t be more delighted of the hard work you all put in to be 2019 Mashies Champions.

Enjoy Field Day at Kapiti on the 24th August.

Winners of the Ade Waddell Memorial are Mick Dearmer and Dean Alexander. Dave Workman/Jason Mokalei-Smith sustained pressure from Dean and his big hitting came through in the end , Mick’s composure and Golfing intellect was very valuable, Dave Workman and Jason Mokalei crumbled under the pressure. A bit like the All Black game on Saturday night. -Congratulations guys!!

Roaring Forties started on Saturday night and the winning number was 40 Russell Oliver, 39 Norm Muir and 1 Kim Cottrell. – congratulation to you all!! I wonder who will be the winner this week?

Please don’t forget to register your name for the working bee on the 11th or 12th October to paint the clubrooms – any of your time would be appreciated!

For the competitions that we set up in Dot Golf that play under the “tournament scoring” this option is no longer available in Dot Golf, you are aware that it only takes two exceptional scores in tournaments can reduce a handicap index. The change is due to the introduction of the new world handicap system (WHS) and the transition from current handicaps to the new WHS handicap. There will still be R handicaps, but should fully be phased out by the introduction date. If you are wanting any further information regarding the new WHS, it will start appearing on http://www.golf.co.nz/About/Handicapping.aspx website shortly. You can check out the Golf Operation Guide which will be added to the website in the next week or two. It will have it own heading at http://www.golf.co.nz/About/Default.aspx.

Default tees will be white for Saturday and Sunday.

Friday Group please remember the course will be unavailable for you to use on the 13th September, we are hosting the Wellington Electrical Golf Association, plus the week after on Friday we are hosting the Diplomats and Defence please ensure your group tees off at 11.30am on this day as my group will be teeing off at 12.00pm.

Please remember to register for the Wellington Left-Handers tournament, there is a registration sheet on the notice board – this tournament is on Saturday 28th September.

The Shop/Office will be closed on Monday 19th and 26th August.

What’s on this week:

Saturday – course available

Sunday – Club Day

Monday – course available – office/shop closed

Tuesday – MW Men

Wednesday – MW Women Stableford

Thursday – MW Men.

Friday – course available.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend, hopefully the All Blacks will crush the Aussies.

Afternoon everyone,

Members would have received a course update yesterday, top nine open only till Monday.

There really is not much to report this week, I’m feeling a bit flat after staying up all night to watch the cricket and really the outcome was disappointing – but on the same note the game was exciting, full of dramas, really proud of our team. Last night we had another exciting game of netball, sadly losing to Australia but NZ played really good, hopefully they will get through to the final and take the title.

AND TODAY!!!

Ryan Fox played an awesome game at the British Open, he is tied for third place, and his back nine will go down in history, with the previous record being 33 and Ryan scored 29. – Awesome!!!

Dam proud to be a New Zealander – for a small Country we do so well!!!

Russell Oliver needs to buy himself an electric cart because last Friday was the 6th time he has ran out of petrol this year!!!or maybe he has a memory problem!!!

Clubrooms will closed at 3.00pm Saturday.
