Hole-inone at Pirongia
The Summer Cup at Pirongia Golf Club has been won by Dick Thomas, but the highlight of play was a holein-one by Addy Nieremeijer.
She played the prefect shot on the 9th hole and says she felt “a lot of enjoyment”.
“My two friends and husband were playing too, so they got to see the hole-in-one.”
The Hamilton woman won two trophies for her efforts.
But this isn’t Mrs Nieremeijer’s first hole-in-one.
In 2005 she got a hole-in-one in the 13th hole at the Pirongia Golf Club.
Mrs Nieremeijer plays golf at least once a week, often with her husband.
They own a cheese shop together in Hamilton and play golf on their days off.
Mrs Nieremeijer moved to New Zealand in 1983 and has been playing golf for 20 years.
Summer Cup winner Dick Thomas’ four-round stableford total of 154 was a model of consistency— two rounds of 38 points and two rounds of 39.
The Senior Scramble was won by Kevin Appleby with 43 stableford points, from Tyne Watts (40), Josh Law, Ken Bardsley, Andrew Parsons, Dave Seager (39), Steve Law, Scott Law (38).
In the junior competition good scoring had Adrian Elliott, on 45 points, edge out Pete Morris and Addy Nieremeijer on 43, followed by Kevin Nickson (42), Hans Nieremeijer (41), Barry Cavey and Dick Thomas (39).
Barry Cavey sunk the longest putt and the hole-in-one won Addy Nieremeijer the closest to pin prize.
Twos went to Scott Law, Garry Bowman, Jack Hjorth, Barry Cavey and Sean Bonenkamp.
Barry Cavey also claimed the junior jackpot by scoring a birdie and a two.
