Morning everyone,

No rain – but very cold!!!

Winner of the $50.00 raffle was Rodger Hough and Jason Robinson.

MW Ladies played at Otaki on Monday against Judgeford – once again the weather condition were appalling, never the less a draw of 4 ½ each was probably appropriate for both teams playing in terrible conditions. – Congratulations Ladies!!

Yesterday the MW Men had their Mid – Winter dinner at the clubrooms, they thanked Grahame, Tania and Staff for a superb meal. They also made a small presentation to Tania in appreciated of her efforts in looking after them while Maree was convalescing. They started the day by teeing off at 9.00am and although a fine drizzle of rain was ever so present during the day, most of them enjoyed the chance to play some golf and build up an appetite for lunch. The winner of the day was Gary Jackson with 35 points which was enough to present him with the Bill Adams Trophy. Gary also picked up Ted’s Trophy also for getting an eagle on #10 earlier this month. The MW Men would like to thank Dave and Johnny for the excellent condition the greens are in for this time of the year, they also would like to acknowledge they do a great job and their perfectionism it very much appreciated by the MW Men.

Good Luck to our Ladies who are playing in the MAT Field Day at Otaki Golf Club tomorrow Saturday 23rd June, morning tea at 9.15am and teeing off at 10.00am.

Afternoon everyone,

If wanting to know the status of the course please check website before coming up to play, this is updated daily after heavy rain. https://temaruagolfclub.co.nz/course-status-update/

Today we have #10-#18 open NO CARTS ( and there is no discussion on this – far too wet for carts)

Special thanks must go to the green-keepers on a quick clean-up – they have spent many hours cleaning the debris off the course – and now just waiting for the water to run off, hourly the course is getter dryer – but we can-not predict the weather so the course will be monitored daily for play!!! – you guys are AWESOME!!!

We had a great day for Club Championships on Sunday, the only sad point to the day is after 36 holes someone has to lose – but take solace that the finalist are the best of the best in the club and there will always be a winner and runner-up, I enjoyed waiting for the results but felt the disappointment for those who lost their game, and also triumph for the winners.

Senior Winner was Michael Payne, Runner -up Zane Wilkins, Intermediate Winner was Allan Old, Runner Up Chris Brooks, Junior Winner Brett Keno, Runner-up Steve Needham, Silver Winner Amie Clisby, Runner-up Gina Omundsen, Bronze Winner Kim Abrahams, Runner-up Faye Turner – congratulations to you all – you are all WINNERS!!!!

Another awesome result from our Mashies team that played at Pauatahanui against Boulcott and won 9-6, this win elevates them to 3rd on the table – AWESOME GUYS!!!

Course Closed on Monday till early afternoon, we are hosting the Ladies Pennants.

Sunday 17th June is Golfer of the Year Round 4 for the Men.

Have you registered for the Mid – Week Christmas Dinner Yet????? Registration form in the men’s changing rooms.

All ordered stock to be picked up this weekend please.

The Final Recap from Captain Amie Clisby for our Mary Alward/Tuakana Interclub Team.

Well so close and so awesome!

One of mine and Kim’s good friends made a great comment “You can’t ever win if you aren’t at the big dance” and really that is so true.

WGI has a post of their Facebook page about the final and a couple of thoughts come to mind about the post and the ensuring comments.

In the post WGI mention that a number of the games went down to the 18th, which is right we took five games to the 18th and though we only converted one into points (Chrissy and Dale – looking at your 4 ball), on any other given day we would of converted the others into points and the result would of been different. As a team we will learn from this, and next year we will be more determined dancers!

Seeing the comments from Miramar players and supporters you can see how much the win meant to them. I think this is great and shows that women’s interclub golf is alive and well in Wellington. It was interesting on Saturday the comments from the Miramar team that they have gone some 20 years between wins in the Mary Alward, so though we didn’t get this one, maybe it was just their year.

Lastly, two wins in the four ball, and Ange coming home for the singles win. Again this tells me we work as a team (and yes Ange I will never talk you up mid-season again!!!). Theresa you picked the short straw and came up against a player on fire, however, you stayed the course once your match was over, and supported your partner to the end. That is the spirit of the team this year, and to me makes you the player of the day.

PS: Carole everyone enjoyed the little surprise you left for us, hope you are having a FAB time on the cruise and we look forward to hearing all about it when you’re back 😊

Great Effort Ladies we are proud of your all.

Good Luck to our Ladies playing in the Mary Alward/Tuakana Field day next Saturday on the 23rd June at Otaki Golf Club.

Update from Green-keepers:

Please Note everyone #15 is out of play for a couple of weeks (#15 is fine but we have a small layer of silt on it) – you are to play chipping green instead – don’t forget to go to #13 then chipping green, then play #14, #16th is still in play.

Carts can be used this weekend on both sides ONLY by Club Members that can adhere to the previous Carts Rules put into place by the committee, if you can’t – you can-not use your cart. No Carts for Visitors until further notice.

I have a registration list for the Ade Waddell Memorial Trophy for the men starting next weekend on Sunday 24th June, format is four ball, best ball Match-play on Handicap from the lowest handicap in the Match. Each pair to be one senior(0-12) and one Junior (13-24) at the time of the first round, any players with a handicap over 25 can still play but on a maximum handicap of 24, you can arrange your own partners, (I will have to check with Peter if we do a draw for the 24th or you just play at your own time with your partner, for this reason the start sheet for the 24th has not been opened up) this is played over 3 rounds on the 24th June, 8th July, 22nd July, semi finals on 5th August, and finals 19th August, it was a lot of fun last year, it is not a stableford competition. Please register this weekend we have 9 pairs already registered.

If you are not coming up to play just send me your registration in, if you don’t have a partner I have some members registered without partners.

Thanks to our cleaner/reliever Heather today for cleaning the shop/office windows its great to be able to see clearly out of them.

What’s on this week:

Saturday – A couple of groups booked in the morning some tee time still available early morning and after 12.00pm
