Evergreens Golf – 28th September 2017

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.

Midweek Men

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.
