Golf chal­lenge proves tricky

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

A rea­son­able num­ber of mem­bers ar­rived at the Toko­roa Golf Club course, but sev­eral de­cided not to at­tempt the chal­lenge of the six clubs day. How­ever, the 21 play­ers who did had an en­joy­able, if at times frus­trat­ing, day in­vent­ing shots to make up for the miss­ing clubs.

Con­well Dug­gan had a great score of 43 points, ( 7 un­der hand­i­cap), to lead the field home. Club cap­tain Neil Philpott had a gross 73 and 40 points for sec­ond. The fol­low­ing play­ers all man­aged to col­lect a prize: Katai Orake 39, Brett Watene 38, Henry Skel­ton 37, and Gor­don Fuller, Tony Fuimaono, and Tom Hayes with 36.

Only 15 hardy vets braved the ele­ments on Wed­nes­day, with Shane Grif­fiths hav­ing a very com­mend­able 44 points. Su­san Goessi, 37 points was sec­ond, and Tony Fuimaono was third with 35. Mal­colm Buck­ley scored the only 2, and Alby Kut­tel and John Loye had the long­est putts on the 9th and 18th holes.

The ladies’ week­day pen­nants team man­aged to make the fi­nals of the com­pe­ti­tion which was played at Cam­bridge re­cently. Al­though the team played steady golf in the fi­nal, they did not man­age to make the fi­nal 3. In the Wills Cup Com­pe­ti­tion, the Toko­roa Team is ly­ing 2nd be­hind Pu­taruru af­ter 3 rounds. The next round will be played next month, in Pu­taruru. The ladies hope the weather will im­prove for them af­ter be­ing rained off twice re­cently, as they have to catch up on the missed events.
