A titanic struggle between experienced pairing Graeme Quinn & Rod Peters on one side and the tenacious Dave Barrow on the other, eventually resulted in a 2 and 1 victory for the Quinn / Peters combination.
Dave’s partner Stu McLaren, currently in Fiji, was reportedly very proud that Dave had played so well in his absence.

The Club has enlisted the following volunteers:
Thanks: to Caren Martin who has volunteered to be our website coordinator. We wish her well in learning the ins and outs of WordPress (our website editor software) – a somewhat tedious task – and we will be patient till her perseverance proves fruitful.
Thanks: to Wynn Ingram who has taken on the up-dating of our Club history. If you have old photos, knowledge or anecdotes that might be useful, please get in touch with Wynn.
The 2012 Quinovic-Waikanae Pro-Am held on Wednesday 1 February 2012 was a great success at many levels. It was a day to make one proud to be a member of such a cohesive Club. This highlight day of the year was marred only by the rainy weather. However, the volunteers who helped run the day surmounted all discomfort and weather-related inconveniences to put on a fine showing of how a club can pull together. Thanks to all the volunteers on the day – Starters, Spotters, Referees, Scorers, Raffle Sellers and general roustabouts – you made it all work on the day and evoked many unsolicited compliments. Behind the scenes and prior to the day there was a huge volunteer effort in bringing the course and its surrounds up to a very high standard. The Club acknowledges your effort, and is most grateful for all the freely given contributions of time and effort. Well done, Waikanae!

It is intended to organise a tour to visit Ocean shores sometime mid-year (2012) – partners are welcome. For planning and organisational purposes, it is necessary to collate names of those interested in participating in the tour at an early stage. Accordingly, if you are interested in this tour, please signify this by one of the following methods:
Names must be received by Wednesday, 8 February 2012.
