We are still in Orange COVID-19 Traffic Light Setting – mask rules apply
EMAIL FROM OUR SECRETARY – thanks, Marg
Info for you all from our meeting on Saturday:
1: Nothing to report from the Steering Committee about the rebuild - they are meeting with the necessary engineers etc. which all takes time.
2: If you are using a cart - PLEASE - do not take it down the hill to tee off at #14.
3: A big thank you to Jason and his team for maintaining the course during all the wet weather.
4: Tee off time on Saturdays will remain at 11.15am until daylight savings starts which is 25th September.
5: At the beginning of each month those members who are rostered on for bar duties on Saturday will get a reminder of their day - if you are unable to do it on that day – please arrange a swap.
6: An idea has been mooted that we consider setting up a Match/Tournament Committee who will organise these events - please let Jason or Bronwyn know your thoughts. We think ideally it would be a group of 5.

8. Congratulations to Martinborough Men’s team for winning both the Marquis Shield and Sutherland trophy.
Thanks everyone - please let us know any ideas you may have to improve what we are doing.
PS - Please get your matches played as soon as the weather allows - all finals day is 10 September.
MARQUIS SHIELD – Well, along with losing our captain Jason Smith at the 11th hour due to family commitments, our team will be bemoaning dropping a half point along the way this season as they lost the Marquis by this margin when Martinborough came in with 10 points to our 9½ win over Eketahuna (8½). The Marquis Shield scoring system changed this year and was based on total games won in singles and fourball matches, not the team points as I previously reported. Going into the last round here at home on Sunday 14th August, our guys, along with Martinborough and Eketahuna were sitting on 39 points each. Had the previous scoring system been in place, we would have finished in the lead. Oh well, next year. Well done, guys, some spirited matches were played in perfect conditions, and although we lost our silverware, you gave it your best. The only two scored during play was by our own Tommo who chipped in on the 18th and won himself a dozen golf balls.
Thanks to the ladies who spent most of the day preparing food and catering for the teams.
