Normal Health procedures washing, sanitizing of the hands is still required. I think also some of you men might have forgotten to know how to shave, I don’t recall it being one of the covid 19 Rules – it might be best to go and buy yourselves a razor. It is great to have some sort of normality back.

Afternoon Members,

In light of the Covid 19 a lot of organized golf events have now been put on hold – office staff will try to let you know of these events as soon as they come in. The WGRA has decided to put Level 1 Rules Course planned for the 19th April and Level 2 planned for the 7th June on hold until the Covid-19 situation is resolved. Plus the Women’s National Teams Champion District Final has now been cancelled for the year. The Feilding mixed 9 Plus 9 Golf Tournament has been cancelled also. I suggest to members if you have registered for any away tournaments contact the organizers to see if they are still going ahead.

Te Marua Golf is still operating in line with the advice issued by Wellington Golf and the NZ Ministry of Health – The course is open to play subject to those who are unwell or have recently travelled overseas not coming to golf. I also understand that this is an anxious time for some members, as staff we are doing our bit my cleaning most items that are touched in the shop/office by members and visitors hourly, you will notice small things like the flags not being put out on the putting green and etc – these recommendations have been in line with NZ Golf concepts.

Mid-Week Ladies results for Wednesday 18th March LGU & Putting are 1st Susan Somerville 69 nett, 2nd Erica Wood 70, Audrey Messenger 72c/b, Joanne Carson 72, Faye Turner 73c/b, Colleen Winter 73, Putting Audrey Messenger 30, nearest the Pin Audrey Messenger.

Division 1 played Shandon at home on Saturday and won 9.5 to 5.5. Some tough close matches were played and the majority going down to the 17th and 18th hole. They had 5 draws across singles and fourball matches. Player of the day went to Leigeon, and team of the day went to Ian and Dom. -Awesome result guys!!!

Division 6 won 12.5 – 2.5 against Titahi Bay at home on Saturday, great effort from the team and Man of the Match went to Warwick Evans 7/6 – Awesome!!!!

Congratulations to Erica Wood who won the Summer Trays.

Thanks to the members who have supported the Tournament today against the Diplomats – tee off is 12.30.

Message from Peter Gallen who organizers the Twilight for us each year, thank-you Pete for an enjoyable six weeks:-

To PAK ’n SAVE Upper Hutt we have to say a big Thank You for sponsoring this year’s Summer twilight.

And a big Thank You too to our 19th Haven Caterers and their team, for the delicious after-match meals.

The golfing side of things took the same form as the pre-Christmas Business House Twilight – a competition for teams, a TWILIGHT FOR TEAMS event.

The priority was fun – for golfers of all levels. The weather gods were very kind to us – 6 weeks of brilliant Thursday evening weather !

For each of the 6 weeks played, the 3 best Stableford scores for the team was what mattered.

The top 2 teams for that week were awarded prizes supplied by our sponsor, PAK’nSAVE.

The other teams…………..well…..they just had to take it on the chin and vow to do better next time J

We did also take note of the individual stableford scores each week, best and worst, but there is no need to expand on that information here.

Each team’s scores were accumulated over the 6 rounds and the final result from a field of 9 teams was

1st Taka 356
2nd Chemically Enhanced 341

Congrats to Team Taka (Shannon, Mark, James & TK) who have said they will be returning to defend their title in our next Twilight for Teams event.

And well done to Team Chemically Enhanced – a good runner up finish with their base team of Mike, Bernie, John & Kerry.

Other team scores (not in any order and not necessarily for 6 rounds) were

Shankers & Scoopers 335
Triple G 330
Select 318
Gumboot 338
Darren’s Destroyers 281
Constructables 276
PAK’nSAVE 278

We look forward to seeing you all back next spring/summer for the next round of Te Marua Golf Club’s Twilight events.

To everyone involved in the event – Players, Spectators, Caterers, Sponsors, Organizers – Thank You for your support of this event.

You all helped make it another successful Te Marua Golf Club production.

Morning Members,

AGM MONDAY AT 8 O’CLOCK in the Clubrooms.

Golfer of the Year is on Sunday, you have all been registered. There is a list of members that made the cut and out – line of Competition on the white board in foyer. Good Luck to you all!!!

The Club would like to express their Deepest Sympathies to Club Member Pat Sinding, on the loss of her husband Gunner who pass away last week. I know that Gunner was a member here many years ago, our thoughts are with you and your family.

The Weekend Shootout Winner was Peter Gallen, Runner -up Aaron Wynyard. The weather was perfect so made the 7 hours of playing time a enjoyable day, sadly some players were disappointed with their form on the day but that is GOLF. Peter Gallen took the title after an 18th chip off to resolve the tie with Aaron Wynyard – both players scored 4 on the 18th hole, but a cool head and experience prevailed with Peter winning. Peter had an awesome round best ever score of 73, but the next day he shot 95 so goes to show golf always wins the end of the day. The 2018 shootout winner Wayne Turner was knocked out (drum roll) first hole, so was stopped short in his attempt to win back to back. – Congratulations to you all that made the cut!!!! And for those that didn’t there’s always next year.

Weekend Women’s Shootout is on today( Saturday)teeing off #10 at 10.30.
