Another warm spring day saw 37 players turn out for a par competition on Tuesday for Vets, who also welcomed the Wednesday ladies players who are merging together moving forward.

Scores were Dale Fayen, Max Baylis +4, Cary Clark, Mike Newport, Alex Macdonald +3, Brian McKeown, Lesley Sadler +2, Wayne Taylor +1, Share Gibbons, Jane Brooking all square. Twos went to, Ron O’Neale & Chris Thomson. Nearest the pin; Lesley Sadler. Longest Putt; Chris Thomson.

The mid-week 9-holers tallied the results and announced the winner of the Harris Cup, a nett best three over four rounds contest that saw Maureen Coulson snapping up the silverware ahead of Wayne Buck and Phil Gibbons.

Last Wednesday the 9-holers played a Stableford round over the back 9, results were: Wayne Buck 21 points, Craige Burt 18, Terry Price 15, Bill Armstrong 14, and Jenny Harris on 14 points.

Despite quite blustery conditions on Wednesday night, Twilight golf went ahead with a slightly smaller group of enthusiastic golfers, with some good scores being made regardless of the wind. The results were: Wendy Wills 24, Nigel Bailey 23, Lance Sayer 23, James O’Connor 22, Malcolm Steele 21, Nic Craig 21. Nearest the pins went to Lance Sayer and James O’Connor. The Admirals Challenge longest putt went to Craige Burt.

On Friday, there were 15 players keen for a round of elevenses on a lovely Wairarapa day. Steve Gladwell, on 24 points, sneaked the win on a tight round. Ian Brinkworth, Peter Bain, Mike Newport all on 23 points and John Vallely in 5th place on 22.

It was a smaller turnout for our Saturday nine-hole contingent, with the Club’s Christmas Cheer being played.

The group played a par round over the front nine which seen the Armstrong’s taking top position, Jennifer on +1 and Bill on -3.

The 18-hole Christmas Cheer competition was won by Jane Brooking on 42 stableford points, Wendy Wills was second on 39 and Craig Wilson was third on 38 points and many of the field taking home a ham with thanks to Premier Beehive’s generous sponsorship.

This Saturday sees the official season ending with the David Brown Memorial in contention, a mixed better ball Stableford event.

On Sunday, the SWWMC will be hosting their Xmas Cheer, teeing off at 10am, entry fee is $25- all are welcome!


Just the second week of the twilight competition and two teams in particular are looking dangerous:

First and second places were reversed this week with All In The Family runners up to Enumerates.

This puts the Enumerate Chartered Accountants team on 18 points, one ahead of All In The Family due to Gary Tenant scoring an extra point for his team by getting ‘nearest the pin’.

Third place [4 points] went to a new team consisting of Nuki Gordon, James Crawley, and Allan Carroll. Longest drives were won by Shiro Cribb and Jill Slight.
