Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Waikanae Golf Club Championships.
From left to right, Grant Fairwearther (Vets), Phil Carthew (Intermerdiate), Gary Coutts (Open), Heather Peters (Nine-hole women), and Nick Ray (Junior).
Don’t worry about spring, it’s mid summer in Waikanae. 64 men turned out for a round of Canadian foursomes, a MWM Singles Cup semi final (Graeme Wallis will now play Kevin Woodley in the final some day soon) and a Singles Plate final. Congratulations to Barry Carr who won the plate final.
We had a random draw in the Foursomes which was won by Warren Sutton and Doug Stevens with a net of 64. Allan Chisholm and George Forbes were second on net 66. Cut off score for table prizes was net 72 on count back.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 14 nearest pin, Gordon Hall; No13 1st cone, John Peters; 2nd cone, Mark France; 3rd cone John Plimmer; No 8 nearest pin, Jim Lynch.
Club Champ Finalists
After all the qualifying, quarters, and semis – the finalists have been found:
Open: G. Coutts vs R. Cooper
Intermediate: P. Carthew vs A. Walding
Junior: N. Ray vs P. Knight
Vets: G. Fairweather vs G. Waterhouse
Congratulations to all the finalists and the best of luck for next Sunday, the 5th November.
Match played on 28th September at Ohariu Valley against Trentham.
This was not one of the team’s best results. We scored only 3 points from a possible total of 15. This saw Waikanae drop from 2nd place to 4th after the completion of the round robin series. We miss out on playing in the semi final and instead go straight into the plate event.
Only singles winner on the day was Terry Jones with Peter Cresswell halving his match. Wayne Patrick and Terry Jones were the only winning pairs with Jim Lynch and Graeme Wallis halving their pairs match.
Best Stapleford scores were Graeme Wallis and Wayne Patrick, both on 36 and Allan Chisholm and Peter Cresswell, both on 34 points.
Today was our biannual, day after coring, Ambrose competition. 26 MWM arrived on another beautiful Waikanae spring day. (Now 2 in a row).
The winning team was that of Warren Sutton, Steve Ricketts & George Forbes with a net 57. Second was the team of Kevin Win, Les Buckley, Barry Carr and Michael Rodgers on net 59.
Dot golf gave us interesting results by getting a course handicap by multiplying the normal Ambrose handicap by a factor of 16. The net score was obtained by subtracting this number from the team gross score to give results varying from -85 to -179. We did not use these figures.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No14 nearest pin, Barry Carr; No13 1st cone, Peter Mason, 2nd cone, Trevor Tildesly; 3rd cone Les Buckley.
Another sunny Wednesday and hopefully they will soon be common rather than noteworthy! Twenty nine ladies played and all enjoyed the conditions and the fact that there is now some semblance of run on the fairways.
