Women's Update

Wow hard to believe we are halfway through the year and the shortest day. Great to see so many players out on the course playing. We are so lucky living in New Zealand and having the luxury of being able to play Golf. The annual Annie Hutchinson Tournament was well represented and thank goodness the weather was kind to us. I wish to thank Hamish Gibbs at Hutchinson’s for their ongoing support of this Event. The club welcomes Melissa Greatorex a 9 Hole member to the Club.

Lucy May & Bays Bonze Interprovincial Challenge

Hastings hosted the annual Lucy May & Bays Bronze Interprovincial Challenge, and our club was well represented. The weather over the 27 holes played was a challenge with wind, rain, a peek of sunshine.

Congratulations to the following players: Anna Wood, Alison Graham, Robyn Stallard, Joanne Wheater, Bronwyn Clayton, Patsy White and Rosemary Burns who played. We also had two reserves selected Deb Hewitt and Sally Bush. The competition was very tight with Poverty Bay winning both Trophies by 1 point. Oh, so close.

Plus all players to bring a “Winter Theme” prize wrapped in Newspaper for the Prize Table. This is a fun day out and everyone ends up with a prize. The proceeds from this tournament helps fund the Association’s Representative Team costs. Entries close Thursday 9th July. See the notice board for full details.

Also it has come to my attention there is a number of Women members teeing off before their allocated booking time. This is not acceptable especially as if can effect the tee times of all club members and visitors. If you wish to start earlier, please check with the Pro Shop to see if there is an available tee time.

Happy Golfing everyone.
