Thursday saw the first of the Putaruru Super Liquor Mid Weeks.  The nett winners were Florence Jellard 69, Butch Hamilton 66 and Brett Worth showing a welcome return to form 67.  The stableford winners were Cheryl Jones 36, Hooky Howard 41 and Wayne Mudford 39.

On Saturday 33 thrashed about in stifling heat in the first round of the Walford cup and qualifying for the Bradshaw cup.  Dieter Drescher sizzled in with 65 nett to be top qualifier and winner of division 2, while Ron Taylor’s 66 won division 1.  2nd in division 1 Ross Jellard 68 and 3rd Terry Garnett 69.  2nd in division 2 Barry Wallace and 3rd Brian Curd both 66.

Finally, we have the Super Liquor Open Tournament at Putaruru this Saturday … With hospitality like you wouldn’t believe and a prize table approaching $2000, it is well worth the effort of having a crack, so … come and be part of the fun.

The Ladies season started in fine style with a Valentines Day Scramble.   A field of 44 players, including visitors from Tirau and Cambridge all enjoyed this change of format, and the prizes of wine, chocolates and flowers were very well received.

The winner of the 9 hole nett was Sue Urbahn 39, stableford winner Dulcie Mclean; most chocolates winner Elizabeth Howland followed by Gillian Robbins, Helen Haigh and Joy McDonnell.

The 18 hole nett winner was Florence Jellard 68, stableford winner Margaret Karl; most chocolates winner Alison Riley followed by Audrey Turner, Joy Aitchison, and Maureen Nickalls.  All other players received chocolates for which, some of us were extremely grateful.

Captain Denise Hunt has started a records book, and the winner of two records, the first for being the first entry in the record book, and the second for hitting the fairway 16 times in the round is Maureen Shanly … congratulations!

Next Tuesday is the Nancy McCormick foursomes and “Three Blind Mice” for the 9 holers.
