Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pahiatua Golf Club will remain closed until we are told via NZ Golf that we can open up again. The gate has been locked and security measures remain in place. Take care, be kind. From the Committee.
ASHWELL CART SHED OPENING
Thanks to all those who attended the opening of the cart shed. A special thanks to Kevin and Glenn Ashwell who arranged the day and provided food afterwards in the clubhouse. We have a great asset by way of the Ashwell’s (Trish and Barry) bequest. Photos from the opening have been supplied by Glenn and Cate - thanks for that.

CORING is planned to begin on Monday DEPENDANT on weather and water supply. Water is at a very serious level, so the coring will only commence if it is prudent to do so.
Most members will receive their subscription account and new programme book in the next couple of weeks. Those new members who have already paid will receive their programme books and membership card as soon as practicable. Please look out for these in the clubhouse when you are there.
Our pennant ladies are off to a flying start for the season with two great wins at Eketahuna on Monday. Silver beat Rangatira B 4-2 while District won 4-1 over the combined Rangitikei/Foxton/Linton Camp united team. Rona Squires was the 4th member of the District team not named in my last newsletter. Congratulations to all the players.
This Sunday here at Pahiatua, Championship Pennants begin with our team of Lisa Cotton and Lindy Wheeler playing Levin. Good luck ladies. Come along to see some of the district’s top players. While the course is not closed for pennants, the ladies have right of way AT ALL TIMES. They tee off from numbers 1 and 13 at 8.30 for morning foursomes and afternoon singles from 12.15pm.
TC Ladies did not feature high in the prize list at Pio Pio-Aria last week with one team placed 5th gross from the 36 teams playing while the other team was in the top half of the nett scoring. The local team won the 2 round nett event by 29 strokes from the 2nd placed team!
BALL LOST OR OUT OF BOUNDS RULE please note – this has NOT changed.
Rule 18.2b: What to do when ball is lost or out of bounds
If a ball is lost or out of bounds, the player must take stroke and distance relief by adding one penalty stroke and playing the original ball or another ball from where the previous stroke was made (see Rule 14.6 for procedures for dropping the ball).
The penalty for breach of this rule is referred to as general penalty which is loss of hole in matchplay and a two-stroke penalty in stroke play. If in doubt, play a provisional ball – refer to Rule 18.3.
