Our Ladies Pennants won 5-4, the day was lovely and the ladies loved the course, they then gathered in the tee-time café for something to eat where they enjoyed the great food and awesome atmosphere. -Great win Ladies!!!

Holding on to top spot in the final round will be tough with Karori only one and a half points behind and with a home game to finish. Shandon are also still within striking distance. Te Marua will travel to Judgeford, push for a good win there, & leave the rest to the golfing gods. You never know in sport !

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.

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!!!

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.

What’s on this week:

Saturday – course open

Sunday – Club Day – last day for Senior Men to qualify for Matchplay

Division 1 did not have a happy day on Saturday playing Interclub at Titahi Bay losing 12.5 to 2.5. Dom had his first loss of the season whilst Dave Render was player of the day with a 3/1 win, team of the day was Kayne Martin and Luke Holford with a 1 up win with an eagle on the par 4 – 18th to get the win. They will certainly look forward to playing at home this Saturday after 3 away games,

Division 6 won 8 ½ – 6 ½ , Owen Frost was player of the day whilst Allan Fayen lost his first game in 2 years. Peter Gallen lost his game for division 3 , but was excited with his two, he managed to putt a 60 foot – yeh right!! It was probably a 40 foot putt.

Diplomats play Te Marua on Friday the 20th March at 12 – there is a registration form on the notice board, this is normally a great afternoon of golf, Diplomats supply the prizes and light snack afterwards. It would be great to have good numbers for this tournament.

A message from Dave Edhouse:

On Tuesday the Mid- Week men’s annual visit to Manor Park was held. The weather was overcast with very warm and balmy conditions. There were 19 of us and combined with the hosts made a total of 40 in the field.

This was a stableford competition and most of the scores were in the 40 plus range.

We were well looked after and many friendships renewed. These outings are very important, as they establish a strong relationship between clubs.

Just a reminder to all our members, our next visit is to Waikanae on Tuesday the 10th of March with registration from 9 am and tee off at 10 am. There is a list in the men’s locker room if you want to put your name down or contact Dave Edhouse on 5269342.

Our 2020 Ladies MAT Interclub team is sitting 1st on the leader board by 0.5 but first is first. On Saturday they played at Wainui in the terrible wind, they were grateful for the 4.5 points, with the best results coming from team Ange Walsh and Kerry Baines, dominating and picking up all three points in their 4 ball and Theresa Scholey calmly winning her singles 3/2 while giving up 8 shots (yes 8) – Awesome work ladies!!!!
