The Presidents Pen, The 19th Hole, November 2017
Spring has sprung in the nick of time, allowing our green staff just enough time to get the course ready for the club champs. Well done Mark and Eugene. It wasn't looking good for fine weather until captain Colin gave his magic 0800 number a call. We certainly have had enough rain and still the water table is high. The champs got off to a flying start on the Friday with four boys competing for the Junior Championship. I was the witness to some stunning golf by all of them. There behaviour and sportsmanship was a delight to watch. They are all a credit to their parents. The winner with a round of gross 62 was Nathan Smith, a close second was Oliver Leen with a 66. Both Liam Jessup and Will Best did very well. Keep up the good work boys.
Two of the boys turned up the next day to play in the men's champs and continued their great form, Nathan Smith playing in the men's 36 hole final, and Oliver Leen in the Intermediate 36 hole final. Both were victorious, Nathan over Alan Brierley, and Oliver over his dad Grant. I expect Oliver's privileges were cut after this BIG win! A high standard of golf was displayed all weekend, and notably the last hole played in the men's semi-final when both players tee shots finished within a foot of the hole. Alan Brierley and Nigel Smith were the two in question. Bob Stokes was the winner of the Junior A, and Bernie Healey the Junior B winner. Our champion of champions team has taken on a complete new look. One thirteen year old, a fourteen year old, and Bob (not sure of the age), but I am sure he will inspire the boys on the day. Good Luck from all of us...
The ladies also had some great golf with some matches going the full distance. Well done to Shirley Smith the silver winner, Judy McKenzie, Bronze 1, Noeleen Darby, Bronze 2, Steph Meredith Bronze 3. All the best for your champions event.
The golfing calendar is coming to a close. Every cup and competition is almost complete. Presidents trophies, Black Tees Trophy, the shootout, and the Fedex Points Comp all but done. Considering the weather we have had it is a credit to you all for making sure your matches and competition days are complete.
Ken and his team have also been busy with a number of improvement projects. Some have been done and some nearing completion. The new putting green at the Lakes is looking great. The seeding and fertilizing along with some water and TLC has made this project a worthwhile exercise. Thanks to the Green staff for their assistant. A weather protection screen has also been installed at the Lakes Kiosk which has multiple functions, helping to read the computer screen just one of them. The new chipper has arrived and a demonstration proved very successful. We look forward to many hours work from this machine, turning our waste into mulch. Some large Pines have become very dangerous and hopefully over the next couple of weeks we will have them taken down.
Work will continue on the courses, by our volunteer group up to Xmas. Any assistance you can give will be appreciated, so if you call help contact Ken, Jimmy, or myself.
The Greens are in great shape, possibly the best in the Waikato, some visitors tell us. We will keep the length at 4mm over the hotter months, and the holiday period to ensure they are in great shape for the start of next season.
We will in the next couple of weeks commit our club to the 2018 rep season. Hopefully we can field competitive teams again. Gordon and Pop will be looking after team selections etc.
The 2018 programme is almost complete. Russell has already put a draft together and along with some new events the PSRC have added it looks like a full year of Fun.
Over the holiday period, we will be involved in a roster to man the Lakes Kiosk. Please give your time if and when you can. We want to make sure our holiday players “Toe the Line”.
I once asked my caddie for a sand wedge. He came back 20 minutes later with a Ham on Rye.
I see an Aussie says he has invented a game which closely resembles Golf. I thought, Oh yes, my husband’s been playing that for years.
The championships were this year about young men we have here in Pauanui. We need to
encourage them, so to get more younger players bring them along, both Boys and Girls.

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.
