Round 1 of the MWM Winter Challenge was indeed a challenge for most of us. Out of a field of 47, 16 did not finish thanks to short, intermittent but heavy showers throughout the day.
Today’s winner of the stableford event was Chris Derbridge with 39 points followed by Kevins Woodley and Win on 38 points. The cut off score for table prizes was 29 points.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 9 hole nearest pin 3rd shot, Chris Derbridge; No14 nearest pin, Ed Isaac; No 16 nearest pin 2nd shot John Plimmer; No 13 nearest 1st cone, Kevin Woodley; nearest 2nd cone, Warren Sutton; 3rd cone, John Plimmer.

After a wet previous week no carts were allowed so unfortunately the scheduled 2nd round of the 2 day stableford competition was postponed. This event is now scheduled for 18th July. Before our report for today a reminder that the Simms Osboldstone event is scheduled for June 6th (providing carts are allowed on the course). The first of 11 possible rounds of the Winter Challenge starts next week. This will be played as long as we get enough players each day.
Today’s winner of the replacement stableford event was John Plimmer with an awesome 40 points followed by Peter Fairfield on 38. The cut off score for table prizes was 32 points.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 9 hole nearest pin 3rd shot, Graeme Wallace; No14 nearest pin, Harold Smith; No 16 nearest pin 2nd shot not known; No 13 nearest 1st cone, Oliver Son; nearest 2nd cone, Les Buckley; 3rd cone, Ed Isaac.
Myles Davidson and Bryan Kilmister each received 8 balls from the shop twos competition.
We welcomed a new member of WGC, Noel Morgan.
Congratulations to Steve Smith who won the Professor Turf Monthly Medal for May. Steve shot a nett 70 and won it by count-back from Ed Isaac.
Ed also features next Sunday, partnering Gary Coutts and taking on Phil Carthew and Peter Knight in the final of the pair’s matchplay.
Ed’s consistency will give free rein to the big -hitting Gary to play ultra aggressive, while Peter Knight’s matchplay game will have sharply benefited from playing interclub this season. And, of course, the opposition can never relax with Phil’s stellar short game. Should be interesting…
9 Hole Women
The results of Interclub at Masterton against Otaki on Thurday the 4th of May was 1 win a draw & 2 losses

Latest results from our Evergreens team at Kapiti GC on 27th April. Although the greens were “interesting” and the fairways and rough not up to Waikanae’s standards the team did well.
Results ; – with wins by Roy South, Graeme Wallis, Bill Ricketts, Doug Stevens and Kevin Win and Jim Lynch once again making a par at the last,for a half this time (to maintain his unbeaten record) providing the “base core”. Then the Pairs wins from Roy and Jim, Bill and Terry Jones, Doug and Kevin Woodley, Kevin and Peter Cresswell and a fine half by Graeme and John Plimmer meant that the team had a very good 10 to 5 win. Another “highlight” was that though Graeme’s opposition had two birdies Graeme still won! A great contribution by everyone – well done team.
Best stableford points: Doug Stevens being our best with 36 points and Bill and Terry following with 33.
Today was the first day of the MWM 2 day Stableford competition. Conditions underfoot were OK but a very cool southerly coming from the north slowed us all down somewhat.
Top scorers in the stableford event were Greg Beale and Warren Sutton with 38 points each. However only Warren is a contender in the 2 day event. The cut off score for table prizes was 29 points.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 9 hole nearest pin 3rd shot, Mr Nobody; No14 nearest pin, Graeme Wallis; No 16 nearest pin 2nd shot, Doug Stevens; No 13 nearest 1st cone, Stan Kennedy; nearest 2nd cone, Roy South; 3rd cone, Warren Sutton.

We were hosted by about 20 locals and sadly we were beaten on the day by an average stableford of 31.75 points to 31.25. The top Foxton score of the day was 39 stablefords and the best Waikanae could muster was 34 & 33 by Andy Provan & Gary Story.
