Poor turnout again

The first round of two for the Stroke Play Cham­pi­onships was held in cold fine con­di­tions on Satur­day. Un­for­tu­nately, there was the usual poor turnout from club mem­bers par­tic­i­pat­ing on the Satur­day club day. Gross scores only count in this com­pe­ti­tion, with hand­i­caps only used to de­fine which divi­sion play­ers com­pete in. Gavin Cortesi leads the Se­nior divi­sion by 1 from Pres­i­dent Ian Christie, fol­lowed by Jim Cortesi and Bradley Hayes-Lennon. Hamil­ton Sheck has a handy lead over Katai Oreke, Mal­colm Buck­ley and Henry Skel­ton in the In­ter­me­di­ate divi­sion, and Lionel Grylls has a 1 shot lead over Alan Har­ris in the Ju­nior sec­tion. Dave Ahuriri, is lead­ing the Ju­nior B divi­son from Jon Welch and Alan Blair. The sec­ond and fi­nal round will be played Satur­day. The Ho­tel Cup was played for on Satur­day as well, and was won by Hamil­ton Sheck with 66 nett, fol­lowed by Ian Christie with 68. There will be a hag­gle for those mem­bers not in­volved in the stroke play events on Satur­day.
