Tokoroa New World Christmas Open
Any way you look at the tournament, it was a great success, 114 in the field, some scorching scores, and a great way to kick off the festive tournament season.

The scoring was so blistering that 40 points, or just playing to your handicap was not good enough in most cases for the men, so there were a few boo hoo, get over it cases, who had played well, but not as well as the others in the field.

Sue Urbahn won the 9 hole ladies nett with 36, Shirley Wood the ladies nett with 64, 2nd Jeanette Burton 67;  Ted Ward the division 1 nett with 64, 2nd Lance Hay 65, and Stew Kensington the division 2 nett with 61, 2nd Neville Dugan 65.

The gross score winners were Denise Hunt 84, G Bennett 73 and Shayne Hill 84.

The top stableford scores for the ladies were Joan Spargo 43, Margaret Karl and Alison Riley 40.  For division 1; Tali Mulafia 43, Steve Thorby, Warren Craig and Max Bernsten 42; Division 2; Kyle Savage 43 on count back from John Mathis, Roger Clothier and Sean Samkin 42.

The business house competition started last Thursday with 14 team entries.  The weather was against the golfers, but the in the end was not that bad, quite playable in fact judging by the scoring.

The top team was Tirau Earthmovers 1 on 63 points, followed by Undecided, DOA and MacDaddies on 61.  The top golfers were Dale Ensor on 26, Shayne Hill 23, David Hoyte, Neil Rist and Spotty McCarthy 22.

And in the non golfers division, Matt Corrin had 25, Duncan Bluck, Rob Rogers and Jamie Dover 24.

The top ladies were Muriel Savage on count back from Shannon Pawhau on 20, Fern Taylor 18.

Ron Taylor scored the only two for the evening.

Captain Ding is concerned, DOA has blasted off with a very impressive first night, and yes, they have fronted for the mandatory wager against the Beavers ... finally!  Is this a one off or will the Beavers rise to the challenge and break open the dam ... watch this space!

Coming up …
Thursday has Vets, followed by Twilight.  And on Saturday we have the shootout, ladies teeing off at 11.00AM, and the men at high noon … Good luck and good golfing!
