Weekend Men

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…

Evergreens Results

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.

Mid Week Men Visit Foxton April 20th 2017

A fifty minute drive took 8 Waikanae men to Foxton for our annual visit. It was worth the trip to get your golf shoes on dry land for a change. 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.

We look forward to hosting Foxton on September 21st.
