Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 14 November 2006.

What a simply superb succulent spring weekend.  Friday night before the shootout saw the Indian cuisine at its finest, thanks to Kel Cutter Catering for the fine job.

To the Saturday where the eleven ladies fired off at 11.00AM.  The men trundled along at midday, 18 of them for 9 holes, where two by two they did drop off until there was just two left.

Captain Ding was delighted not to go out on the first hole, leaving that ignominy for 2 hapless sorts that were not at all happy with the outcome.

At the business end of the day, the last two ladies were Alison Riley and Irene McIvor. Louise Wallace had done well to survive until the 8th.  Irene McIvor did just enough to stay ahead of Alison and win the Ladies shootout.

For the men, all the best golfers went out on the early holes, so going out on the 7th were Massey Rata and Allan Wallace, and on the 8th Butch Hamilton and Shayne Hill.  That left Richie Brown and Ron Taylor going down the 9th.  Ron maintained his steely nerve to win the men’s shootout, having survived 4 chip offs, on the 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th. 

A rapaciously resplendent evening was turned on for 76 golfers to herd out and hack around for 9 nine holes.

The brave Beavers, playing again in the dark, butchered the dejected DOA team by 4 points, enough to earn a brag or two for the evening at least.  And to the delight of Captain Ding, 3 DOA’ites didn’t make the ladies tee on the 16th, yum yum yum!

First in the teams were Tirau Earthmovers 1, followed by Phuk Knows and Undecided (Captain Ding disclaims all naming rights issues.)

The best of the golfers were Massey Rata 24, Dale Ensor and Tini Hill 23.  And in the non golfers, first was Joe Davies 24, Benny Savage Snr and Doug Ward 23.  Shannon Pawhau won the ladies with 21 followed by Muriel Savage and Fern Taylor.

Coming up …
Thursday has the Super Liquor Midweek, followed by Grayburn Ross Twilight.  And on Saturday we have the Ladies Closed Christmas Tournament … Good luck and good golfing!
