GISBORNE GOLF | CLUB NEWS _______________________

Firstly a big thank you to Cliff Poole for the great work done painting the deck in front of the Clubhouse. I’m certain you will all agree the look of the clubhouse is now something to be proud of.

With the Third Round of the Mens Club Championships this Saturday we will see some great match ups. In Round Two Dougal Watts vs William Brown, Dougal possibly played the best round of his life with 3 birdies, 9 pars and 2 bogeys for 71 off the stick only for William to compile 5 birdies, 9 pars and 2 bogeys for a 69 and win 1-up on the last hole. Great golf by both of them .

The Ladies Club Championships were completed on Wednesday with Jan Utting playing Lyn Holmberg in the senior final. This match was close early however Jan played some great golf to be 5 up after 18 holes 6 up after 27 holes and eventually winning on 29th with some good golf played by both Lyn and Jan. In the Intermediate it was a different story Viv Bell playing Loriane McLaughlan with the match going up and down like a yoyo all the way to the 36th hole and all square going down the 37th with a gallery of ladies fitting to the occasion and quality of the match. Just a shame there can not be two winners, such was the game. Viv bell winning on the 37th. In the Juniors Peri Gayford vs Di Webb Peri played solid golf to take this match out on 19th. By the way ladies our Black and White bomber is no longer with us. If his mate starts misbehaving please let me know ASAP. Thanks to the match referees and all those whom made it an enjoyable day. Great to see June Dodgshun out to watch a few holes and catch up with everyone.
