Ambrose run in perfect weather
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.
