Club President, Peter Johnson and Life Member, Anne Lawrence, with the birthday girl (100 years young) and the presentation from the Golf Club
Welcome to soggy Motueka, it must surely be testing the patience of Nick and Ian and their great bunch of volunteers. Please be understanding because you might have a comment or answer that may offend.Bahahaha. Most of the Haig Cup matches were completed, congratulations to the ones moving on. Rest played Russian Roulette stableford hidden partners. Winners Stan Graham & Bernie Hedges 2nd Kevin Armstrong & Andy Tasker. Quite funny really Stan and I played together and making jokes about the poor buggers that got drawn with us, without knowing we were drawn together. Twos today there were 4 receiving $25 each. Lower Moutere Store closest to the pins Ladies Sue Park Men's Ian Pugh.
Plenty to come. New World Open September 4th, Super Liquor Pairs October 2-3 find a friend. Total Golf Open 22-23 August.
Remember it's only a game, have fun.
Ps Motueka Sloan team had a hard fought win against Totaradale 3.5 to 2.5 in some very tough conditions played in Nelson on Sunday.
5.7.21 ACHESON CUP
Congratulations to our team of Kerry McConchie, Sue Park , Dael Ray, Shona Johnson, Jean Hodson and Jan Overall who held on in a nail-biting finish to retain the Acheson Cup from Totaradale. The result went to the last putt on the 18th for a half to secure the win with 2 wins , 2 losses and 2 halves. It was a very cold frosty start but great day for our team. Well done!
8.7.21 DISTRICT OPEN DAY
Alas it was not our day. Cold "disgusting, horrible wind" was not conducive to good golf for our 4 teams of Ladies who went to defend the Banner at Greenacres. The banner now resides at Golden Downs who managed a creditable 93 followed by Greenacres on 88. Perhaps next DOD will be better.
15.7.2021. PENNANTS Yes we made it to the finals!!
Both our teams played at Greenacres against Nelson on what turned out to be much better weather than had been forecast, a little cloudy and cool to start, a threat of showers then mild pleasant playing conditions. Our Central team unfortunately did not come away with the results they hoped having 1 win,1draw and 4 losses .
Congratulations however to The Northern team players, Jacquie Martin, Dael Ray, Shirlene Miller, Grace Latimer, Helen Dryden and Sandra Ilton who had another outstanding result with 5 wins and 1 draw to be at the top of the zone with a total of 44 points and now go onto the finals to be held at Motueka 30th and 31st August

PINK LADY DAY
Thursday 8.07.21 the 9 hole District Pink Lady Tournament was held in perfect weather on our fantastic course.
41 pink players from around the district participated in teams of 3 and one of 2.
Each team member took their turns at playing a pink ball. It appears pink balls are not as good as white ones!
The winning team was Joy Bawtree, Verety Johnson and Audrey Vickerman
The best dressed Pink Lady was Judy Waugh.
A well organised day enjoyed by all players.
You will recall that in June 2019 President Peter announced in his Newsletter that if any member of our club purchased a vehicle from Bowater Hyundai/Isuzu, either new or used, the club will benefit by $250.
Its all ticking along very nicely. Thank you to Bowater, and thank you too to our members who have all purchased vehicles.
