WESTPAC FOURBALL BEST BALL - This was not played on the date set down and is now scheduled for Saturday 18th September along with the Vet’s Trophy Medal round. Drawn partners, one senior and one junior, the field split in on the half the day. Combined nett on handicap.

COURSE RATING CHANGES – NZ Golf have made a couple of changes in our course ratings due to a more accurate wind reading they have obtained from NIWA. Our men’s slope rating goes from 114 to 115 while the women’s yellow course rating goes from 71.0 to 71.1. This means there is a “slight” movement in our index ranges of .1 and .2. This comes into effect on Thursday when new charts will be put up. CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!
