Congratulations to Anna Possenniskie, who has been selected in the Wellington team to compete in the Women’s National Interprovincial Championships. She has also been named the captain. The championship is being held at the Waiuku golf course, April 4th – 7th.

The men’s interclub teams had an up-and-down weekend with Div 2 winning 14-1 against Karori. They now sit on top of the Div 2 table with 47.5 points. Division 10 had a tough away venture at Wainuiomata with a 10.5-3.5 loss. This drops Div 10 to 3rd on the table but with a couple of home games to come the team are determined to make up any lost ground.

For the ladies, the Lansdowne Trophy was played last Saturday and the team had a healthy 6-3 win over Royal Wellington. The final round is at Manor Park vs Shandon. The team is only 2.5 points behind the team in 1st position. The Riverside Cup proved another very close tussle against Riversdale; 5 of the games were decided on the 18th. In the end it was a 5- 4 win.

Winners from last week: Jenny Wilkie won the day last Wednesday with an impressive Nett 67 [Kris Mason can take some credit as she tweaked Jenny’s putting technique]. Grumpies was taken out by Paul Riddiford with 38 points, Thursday club was won by Rob Coy with 40 points, and the weekend comp winners were Ted Jamieson on Saturday and Julie Dondertman on Sunday.

Scoring might be a bit more challenging after March 14 because the greens will be cored.
