Golf Roundup

Gisborne Park

FORTY-five points was only good enough for the consolation prizes as Hank Nyenhuis lit up last Tuesday’s stableford.

Nyenhuis racked up 47 points to stave off a hungry pack of chasers, including Geoff Sharp, Ron Moiser and Chic Brown — all on 45.

Mihi Marino continued her hot streak last Wednesday and only needed a handful of clubs to do it.

Marino won the net title of the women’s four clubs only competition with 64.

Karen McDonald’s 80 was the best gross.

Seniors

Poverty Bay East Coast Senior Golfers’ Society starts its 2017 programme with a trip to Mahia in February.

A 40-seater bus will be hired for all trips in 2017 and all seats will need to be filled to make this economical.

With this in mind, interested golfers need to book and pay in advance on a first come, first served basis.

In response to interest shown, the society will also be inviting senior women players on these trips.

The bus for the Mahia trip will leave the car park at Poverty Bay Golf Club at 9am on Tuesday, February 14.

The inaugural Poverty Bay versus Gisborne Park “Challenge Match” is the second event on the society’s programme.

It is to be staged at the Park course on Tuesday, March 28. There will be more information on this “bragging rights” even in the society’s January newsletter.
