Afternoon Members,

Subs are due by the 28th February 😊

We welcome all members to come upstairs and meet the new caterers Rob and Lui after your game. Check out the new food selection and prices, they both are looking forward to meeting you all.

There was a F/Pos card found on the course in the weekend – did you lose it???

Has anyone found a Number 8 Wilson Iron that was lost on Thursday??

Division 5 lost to Royal Wellington 9.5-5.5, player of the day was James Omundsen with a very comprehensive 6 and 4 victory. His strength and conditioning work over the summer is really paying off.

Division 8 had a convincing win against Otaki 11.5 – 3.5. Allan Old had the best score, Kane Lloyd came back from 4 down to win his game. A great team result.

Division 2 had a loss at Karori 13-2. The positives were their fill in from Div 5 Con Rogers got a half, Sean was player of the day, plus Sean and Dave Render were team of the day, Bluey went to Jason, onwards and upwards this week at home against Masterton.

Division 10 played at Waikanae and Te Marua came away with a hard fought 8.5 to 6.5 result. Wayne Bach, John West, Chris Herbert, Nick Vairaktaris and Sam Donaldson won their singles and four-ball matches. – Excellent guys!!!!

Our Women’s MAT had a tough loss at home on the weekend 4-8 to Kapiti. Most games went down to the last hole or two so the result would have easily gone our way with a little bit of luck. Next round of MAT is away at Shandon on the 27th February. Great effort Ladies!!!

Congratulations to all Captains for being so prompt in e-mailing me your results – keep up the good work😊

Good Luck to all our teams playing on Saturday, if members are playing at home you can go into the Twos Comp, just pay your $2.00 and write your name down on the sheet by the till.

Division 5 played away at Wainui and won 11-4, an excellent result, Division 8 played at home and had a tough 6.5 to 8.5 loss to Judgeford.

Good luck to all our teams playing this Saturday, please remember Captains to e-mail results to me.

Friday 19th February the course is closed for the Tigers Tournament.

Thursday 25th February the course is closed for Evergreens.

Saturday 27th February the course is closed for the Cossie Club Charity Golf Tournament.

Members collect your BONUS CARDS for a free game at Shandon or Judgeford for these days.

Blue Tees Saturday, White Sunday for the Men, Yellow both days for the Women.

This Sunday we have Summer Cup round 2 for the Men, plus National teams event for the Women’s.

The prestigious 36 hole ADS Duncan Cup has long been a long tradition for the lower handicap golfers at Royal Wellington. Recently there has been a resurgence of higher handicapped golfers to participate and challenge themselves on a course layout that is much different from what they are used to. In the future the club hopes to see an even larger turnout for the ADS Duncan, so that higher handicapped players can be paired with and get the chance to play first hand with some of Royal’s scratch golfers. There was an ongoing gallery on Monday on the practice putting green to watch these scratch golfers tee off from the black tees, which on No 1. are placed on the practice putting green. Which is another 25 meters back from the traditional blue tees. Many of the players had the fire power to blow past the fairway bunker on the right. It was amazing to watch.

This year we introduced a modified black/white tee for women that met the same course rating as the black for men. It was great to have our members, Darae Chung and Yewoo Hyun, join the men and play for the cup. Darae was in contention throughout the round and finished 4th overall. We look forward to continuing with this feature and embracing all forms of competition golf.

From the field of 27 players, everyone was a winner on the day. Playing 36 holes from the black tees in windy conditions, with no pick- ups, is a journey in itself. The secret is no blow-ups. Our eventual winner, 16-year old Dominic Hazeldine, did just that. Steady, with a mental focus, while acting like it was just a walk in the park. But behind that ongoing smile, he was in the moment. When told on the 17th tee he was one shot off the lead, he quietly said, please don’t give me anymore updates. Dominic proceeded to birdie the next two holes. And with a big fist pump and shout after making the put on 17 for 3, he smashed a drive down 18. Up and down for birdie on 18 and the cup was his.

Congrats Dominic, a +4 aggregate over 36 holes from the black tees in high winds against a very strong field of Wellington’s best golfers, is extremely impressive. Te Marua Golf looks forward to being part of your life golfing journey." Awesome Dom😊 There were some very impressive young golfers in the field, I have put the results up on the notice board.

What’s on course this week:

Monday – course available

Tuesday – MW Men.

Wednesday – MW Women.

Thursday – MW Men Levin visiting

Friday – course closed.

Don’t forget to say your final goodbyes to Maree and Grahame this weekend.

Until next week.

Winners of the $50.00 raffle were Pat Melaugh, Colin Cowden, Rob McIntrye, Wayne Bach – congratulations to you all, thanks for your support.

There was a mistake in the Shootout Competition, it was more to do with the set-up and default tees of the day on the 24th January, I have fixed it up and think that I have entered most of the members that were not entered on that day, so if you notice that you played and you are not in the shootout of the day please let me know, and I will go into your scoring history and retrieve that card and enter you. (thanks Chas Evans for picking it up).

We have 40 Men and 10 Women registered in the Shootout, this is automatic entry each week, if any other members wish to register the first round of the Shootout will be $5.00, then $1.00 each week.

Saturday 13th February we are hosting our Interclub teams Division 5, 8, and 10, and Mary Alward.

Sadly we only have one Interclub Captain wanting to share their results with you all – so heads up to Kayne Martin who’s team played Mahunga at Te Marua and got a win 8.5 to 6.5. They welcomed Greg Idour, Richard Schouten and Jason Rangiuia to the team all having good first up games. Player of the Day was James Waluszewski 6/5 win, Team of the day was James/Leigeon 6/5 win, Big Blue reinstated went to Sean. – Awesome Guys!!!

The Ladies played here at Te Marua and I’m pretty sure they had a win also.

We welcome new staff member Kim Abrahams who is working with the Greenkeepers.

We also congratulated and acknowledge Dave Sully who has worked here for 30 years on Sunday. We all appreciate the work you have done and still do over the years. – Much Respect 😊

October Activities

Kia Ora,

I just wanted to touch base with you in regards to the activity sessions in October for seniors in Upper Hutt.

Due to uncertainty around COVID levels we are currently unsure if the Senior Regional Games will go ahead on November 3rd however we are still keen to promote activities for seniors.

Below my email signature is a link to the current brochure (there will be some changes necessary to it if the Senior Regional Games are cancelled- the decision will be made following Jacinda’s announcement next week) Could you please have a look at your activity listing both in the blurb and in the calendar.

Please let me know if you are still willing to go ahead with the planned activity should we still be in alert level 2 in October.

Things to consider would be

-A contact tracing register

-Hand washing or sanitiser stations

-Ability to sanitise equipment

– Ability to allow for social distancing

-less than 100 participants

I am keen to hear back from you if you’re still happy to proceed or if you have any concerns.

Thanks,

Steph
