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.
BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO BRONWYN SMITH – HOLE IN ONE ON #12 ON SATURDAY
PLEASE NOTE AREA TO THE RIGHT OF #12 HAS REVERTED TO A PENALTY AREA – THERE IS NO LONGER FREE RELIEF IF YOU HIT YOUR BALL IN THERE – IE IT IS NO LONGER GUR
If you can, you can play the ball from within the penalty area with no penalty, and you can move any loose impediments without penalty as well – if the ball moves, it’s a penalty and you have to replace the ball. PLAY FROM THERE ONLY IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.
Your relief outside the penalty area with one penalty shot is lateral relief of 2 club lengths from the point of entry. Rule 17.1b
Sunday 1st March at Martinborough: The team of Noel Coombe, Danny Pierey, Nigel Pearson and Kieran Pierey (Seniors), Andrew McKnight, Mark Field, Richard Stewart and Steven McHardy (Intermediates), Peter Johns, Mark Hemopo, Michael Galvin and John Metcalfe (Juniors), while not winning, acquitted themselves pretty well in going down 4 ½ - 7 ½ to Eketahuna. Congratulations to those who recorded wins, the matches were all very close.
