The Presidents Pen, The 19th Hole, July 2018
Winter has arrived, and although we have had a little rain the cold wind has been a factor in chilling the golfers. The Lakes course is still wet in places, but very playable and Captain Colin’s programme is moving along very nicely. Please help by making sure you all play your matches on time.
Over the last month there have been some very HOT scores recorded, making the shootout field close up. All the 57s are now out so you’ll need to be a few under your handicap to qualify. Forty seven points and 52 nett are beyond my capabilities so it prompted me to look at the stats for the course hole ratings for the last 6 months. I am pleased to say we have it pretty much spot on, maybe a minor adjustment to the 2nd/11th hole at the Lakes. The 8th at the Pines may also need to change.
The working Bees have been fairly well attended, with some new faces coming along to help Ken and his trusty helper Jimmy. Some new members have made the days which from my point of view is very satisfying. We had a tree fall over onto a neighbour’s property which we managed to clean up using our own volunteers. This highlighted the potential ongoing problems we have with trees. We also had contractor Groube to fell 4 enormous pines at the Pines course, a very big job to clean up the mess, however, thanks to some willing workers we got it done in four days. We have also reconstructed the bunker on the 4th hole along with some fairway top dressing. Volunteer activity has been intense this month.
The ground conditions will be a little messy as a consequence until Spring so please bear with us, use common sense in determining your options from fowl ground.
Ken and the greens committee have identified many other projects that need to be done on both courses and have put a WISH list together and a budget to put to the board for consideration. Big dangerous Pines are on the top of that list.
My personal thanks to those volunteers who have helped over the last month, very worthwhile improvements have been made.
We would like to run a Rules night or two before the end of the year, as there will be a number of changes take place come January 1st. If you would like to conduct or help with these evenings please contact me.
We are aware that there has been some late night driving on the lakes course, vehicle type. If you see or hear anything please advise the Club Manager, Gary, or greenkeeper Mark, or myself. With the soft conditions this can cause considerable damage.
The Golf Club finances under Bert Cullen’s guidance has done well. We have made some contributions to course improvements. The Richardsons tournament was successful and gave us some more funds to use on the course.
A special thank you to Ray V for standing in for Colin, assisting in this capacity was very much appreciated.
We have experienced some healthy increases in attendance on golf days, very encouraging, long may it continue, so thank you all, your participation is essential to the success of the golf club.
Doug said to Colin: Isn’t that a new putter? Yep was the answer. So what happened to the old one?? It couldn’t swim!!!
“No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse”.
Trivia. The British open 2018 is at Carnouistie. Did any Kiwis finish in the top 20 at that course in the last 55 years???Years and scores please.
Happy golfing, President Doug
P.S. The Golf Shop has the coffee machine back and also has installed a Pie Warmer so Hot Snacks and Good coffee are available.

Richardsons Real Estate Pauanui Open Golf Tournament
The Annual Richardsons Pauanui Open Golf Tournament was held on the 19th & 20th of May, organised by the Pauanui Golf Club entailing 36 holes of golf played over two days with over 100 men and women competitors, played over two separate courses.
It was a resounding success even though played in nothing less than extreme challenging weather conditions with gale force winds, rain, showers and a wind chill factor of about 5 - 6 degrees.
The women’s competition held on the Pines Course saw Shirley Smith edging it with a gross of 142 over Raewyn Bainbridge who scored 149 over the 36 holes. The men’s competition held on the Lakes Course saw Alan Brierley prevail over Tuk Sheehan on the Dot Golf count back system after seeing both players post a gross of 150 over the 36 holes.
There were prizes for most competitors in various categories including Gross, Nett and Stableford and even a prize for the best dressed man and women. The events main sponsors Neil and Heather Christie of Pauanui Richardsons Real Estate were on hand Saturday evening at the prizegiving to present winners their prizes. The prize giving, held in the Pauanui Sports and Recretion Club was filled to capacity with competitors and their supporters and a wonderful night of camaraderie was enjoyed by all.
The boys battled all day in the wind and rain to raise the Tolich Cup above their heads but were narrowly beaten 5 – 7. It went down to the wire in the last match of the day. An epic game by all accounts and a gallant fight. All our guys played well but just couldn’t manage to pull a famous victory out of the bag. Congratulations to all the boys down in the Waikato for the terrific journey they have taken us on and to especially to our President Doug Crisp for his dedication and commitment during this event.
