Akarana’s tro­phy cabi­net full of glory

Central Leader - - News -

The Akarana Golf Club’s tro­phy cabi­net is burst­ing at the seams af­ter they won two pres­ti­gious ti­tles re­cently.

Last month they won the New Zealand men’s club team cham­pi­onship.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing run­ner-up last year, team mem­bers Van Wright, Seve Ha, Hay­den McCal­lum and Dar­ren Gal­lott coasted to vic­tory, seven shots clear of Cam­bridge.

Van Wright was the most suc­cess­ful player for Akarana in the 36-hole tour­na­ment at Ash­bur­ton Golf Club, pro­duc­ing three rounds un­der 70.

And to top things off, the Mt Roskill-based club saw off a chal­lenge from the Auck­land Golf Club on May 18 to claim the pre­mier Auck­land teams ti­tle, the Bis­sett Shield. The vic­tory is the first time the club has held the shield since 1961.
