Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in “This Week”
Thursday 9 August 2007.

Men's Report
It rained, and rained and rained some more.  Saturdays Firestone Pork n Bacon Tournament, Monthly Medal so on and so forth was put on hold because the course was unplayable.  They will be played this Saturday instead, subject of course to the weather.

Maybe Captain Ding should have a word to Mrs Zeus, but one thinks back to all the tirades over the grizzly weather dished out for twilight last year.

So it is with heavy heart that Captain Ding has resigned himself to writing about nothing, no play, no results, just rain.  There was not even a little award for a Ladies Tee from Thursday to write about.  And as much as Captain Ding would like to put a spin on this week’s rain, one cannot conduct oneself with such self serving self indulgent prattle.  There was no play, nothing to report on and therefore, this is the end of the men’s report!

On Monday the 9 hole ladies held their winter tournament sponsored by local real estate girl Diane Urbahn.  With 46 entries after a terrible wet night, the weather held for them on the day.

Eleven clubs were represented from throughout the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

On the front nine, Gillian Robbins took best nett as well as best local nett, sponsored by Marjorie’s.  Top Stableford went to Mairi Edmonds, 2nd Lynette Bennett and 3rd Cecily Duxfield.  Nearest the pin on the 3rd was Karen Sweeney from Walton, and the longest putt on the 9th was won by Isobel McNaughton.  The busiest golfer was M Dillon.

On the back nine, Beryl Garnett came in the best nett.  The stableford winner was Joan Shand from Te Puke, 2nd Carole Furlong and 3rd Sue Urbahn.  Nearest the pin on the 10th went to Joan Ranger and the longest putt on the 18th was made by Carole Furlong.  The busiest golfer for the back nine was Jennifer Newton.

Not withstanding the heavy conditions, a great day was had by all.

On Tuesday in the Captain’s Trophy, Alison Riley headed off all in the 0-26.7 division with 39 Stableford, 2nd Denise Hunt 35, and 3rd Margaret Ranger 32.

In the 26.8-40.4 division, Bev Macartney came in first with 33 points, 2nd Heather Edgar and 3rd Audrey Mathis 32. 

In the 9 hole scramble 1st Lynette Bennett, 2nd Dulcie McLean and 3rd Ethne Dodd.

Vets Report
On Thursday in pretty good weather, there was a great turn out of 30 golfers to play in the vets scramble.

Les O’Leary took out the men’s with 41 points, followed by Ross Jellard 39 and 3rd Don Riley 37.

The ladies winner was Irene McIvor with 35, 2nd Florence Jellard 34 and 3rd Heather Howard 34.  We look forward to seeing you all next week.

Coming up …
Thursday has Vets, and on Saturday we have the postponed Firestone Pork n Bacon mini tournament, monthly medal, Captains Trophy and the 2nd round of the Presidents … Good luck and good golfing!
