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

Afternoon Members,

Another beautiful day up here – SPRING IS COMING!!!!

Winner of the $50.00 raffles were John Kane, Gary Sherwin, Gary Jackson and Mal Wellington. – Congratulations everyone and once again thanks for your support.

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!!!

Te Marua secured a resounding 14-1 home victory over Waikanae to move into first place on the Division 9 table. A clean sweep was achieved in the fourballs & good individual wins were achieved by Mal Wellington (6 & 5), Mel Phillips (6 & 5), Brent Leader (5 & 4) and Mike Smith (8 & 7).

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 !

Good luck to our 2019 Champion Mashies Team playing at Kapiti tomorrow.

Morning Members

Congratulations to Ian Jepson who got a HOLE IN 1 on Tuesday on #15.- first one ever!! You are Awesome!!!

The Club is thinking of all unwell members and their families.

We are wanting golf sets from members in good condition, we would prefer they are donated but will pay if necessary.

Division 3 played at Royal Wellington on Saturday and sadly were well beaten 14 – 1 Noel Kahui was Player of the Day, they were truly disappointed with the loss, hopefully next year they will have a full strength squad each game to be compatible again. – Onwards and Upwards Guys!!!!!

Division 9 emerged victors 9 – 6 at home against table topping Shandon who, as always were tough to beat (plus they stacked their team for the game) Mal Wellington, Mel Phillips, Brent Leader and John West all secured solid 5 & 4 victories. The win consolidates their squad to second spot in the table, closing the gap to 3 points behind Shandon with two rounds remaining. It’s going to be a close finish – any one’s for the taking!! Awesome result guys!!!!
