Presidents Pen, The 19th Hole February 2018
Well who would have predicted that we would have to shut the Lakes course in the middle of summer because it was toooo wet to play. The grass is growing like mad as well, so it is looking good for Autumn golf.
The Hay Cup was the last Summer event run by PSRC, and the turnout was great. Nice to see so many for this event; well organised and well won by Karen Heaven ably assisted by Tony Cogan, congratulations to you both.
Men’s opening day was also well attended, with some great scores to start the season. Hope they haven’t started their run too early. Nev Hooper had a net 53 Net; far too good; Ray Verrall 55, Mark Follis 56, Graham Alexander 56; all playing under their handicap. The twos were very tough with 18 on the day, each being rewarded with $1. Two players had 3 twos, for just three bucks.
Mixed opening day was just “so much fun for all”, having a no start Saturday and only 9 holes on Sunday with 24 very wet players. However, after a quick hot shower, some clean dry clothes we all came to prize giving dry, for not only the prizes but a sausage sizzle.
Congratulations to Karen Heaven and Hugh Masters the winners, Jane Masters and Alan Brierley runners up, Russell Douglas and Bruce Cameron third place, The Captain and his partner past PSRC president didn’t do well at all, bringing up the rear. A good day was had after a few drinks.
The new putting green at the lakes is moving along, however we need a few volunteers to help get some weeds out (unspeakable ones). See Ken for instructions if you can help.
A brand new greens mower has also been purchased by PSRC and will arrive shortly ensuring we have the very best putting surfaces.
The vets pennants have started but yesterday’s round was cancelled because of the weather and will be played next Monday at Matarangi. The first round of the handicap Pennants will be played at Thames on the 25th February. Good luck to our first team of the year.
If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play at it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf.
My boss phoned me today. He said, “Is everything OK at the office?” I said “It’s all under control. It’s been a very busy day. I haven’t stopped to take a break all day.” “Can you do me a favour?” He asked. I said “Of course. What is it? “Pick up the pace a little. I’m in the group behind you.”
Happy Golfing. President Doug.

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.
