Am­brose run in per­fect weather

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

On Satur­day, 44 play­ers par­tic­i­pated in a two-per­son Am­brose event run in per­fect weather for golf. The prize win­ners were: Bren­dan and Leonard Mor­gan, 61.25 nett, Suki Rea and Mii Tereu 62, Rex Asi­ata and Lua Tafau 62, Lionel and Elle Grylls 62.75.

The next four pairs all had a 65 nett score and the count­back ap­plied. They were, Clin­ton Tan­go­hau and Paulie An­der­son, Gavin Cortesi and Nathaniel Cassidy, Deb­bie Hayes-Len­non and Tom Hayes, and Liam McKain and Bradley Hayes-Len­non.

The Di­vi­sion 6 Cham­pi­onship Pen­nant trav­elled to the Waikere Golf Club at Te Kauwhata on Sun­day and played Te Awa­mutu, with Toko­roa win­ning 71⁄ to

2 11⁄ 2. Next game at Toko­roa on April 7.

Last week was a busy one for the Vets. On Mon­day, the sec­ond round of their pen­nants was held at Toko­roa. The team has moved up to 4th through the ef­forts of John Loye’s 63 nett, De­nis Du­gan 68, and Mal­colm Buck­ley 69. On Wed­nes­day, Toko­roa hosted the Waikato Vets when a field of 54 teed off. Lo­cals filled the first five places, prov­ing that lo­cal knowl­edge does help. The top four on sta­ble­ford were: Robert We­hip­i­ana 49, De­nis Du­gan 48, Ken Ram­say 45, and Robin Ire­land with 43.

Re­sults from the Ladies com­pe­ti­tion in the Tiro­hanga Tro­phy Rnd 2 and the Joan Houltham Cup Rnd 1 on nett were: Linda Dickinson 61, (11 un­der hand­i­cap), Jan Grange 65, Lor­raine Gil­bert 67, Edna Ross 69, Judy Van Geest and Paula Pi­hama 70, and Deb­bie Hayes-Len­non 71. Edna Ross scored the only 2 of the day. The Thurs­day 9 hole scram­ble re­sulted in some more great scores. Linda Dickinson held her Tues­day form to score 25 points, fol­lowed by Edna Ross 21, El­lie Dodds 20, and Josie Loye and Bar­bara Kut­tel with 18. Good scor­ing ladies. There should be some rapid down­ward hand­i­cap move­ments if this keeps up.

This coming Satur­day has a Rus­sian Roulette pairs game for the men. Shot­gun start at 9.45. Don’t be late.

On Satur­day March 31 the month’s New World Open will be held.

Mem­bers’ thanks must go to our gree­keep­ers who like the farm­ers are really work­ing hard to present a good playable course. Thanks, Don and Ants.
