Snippets for the week ending 27th September 2013
Welcome to New Members

Welcome to new members Nick Skeggs and Paul Hunt both as nine hole members, enjoy your golf on our great island course.

Bishops Cup

The reporting time for the Bishops Cup is 8.20 on Saturday 28th with a shot gun start at 8.45am on the front nine. Have a quick bite to eat and then out again for Shot gun start at 12 noon. All those not playing in the Bishops Cup may join in the shot gun start at 12 noon and you will be playing a Bisque Par. There is an opportunity to play nine holes in the morning from the 10th tee.

Couples Tournament

The couples tournament was held on Sunday with a small field this year of 20 couples. Gross winner of the couples was Peter and Mat’e Crins, Nett winners Dawn and Peter Ellis and stable ford Paula and David Stringer. In the mixed pairs Katrina Manaena and Hug Fitzgibbon won the gross, Wendy Grindlay and Bryce Stobie won the net and Fran Sutherland and Elton Netto won the stable ford. Well done to all the prize winners.

Business League

This exciting new concept for Wednesday evenings through the summer starts on the 16th October. See below for the format that it will take after the Nelson Pine logo. We will enter a team from the office and the pro shop will enter a team so lets get more members teams involved this year.

75th Anniversary 30th November

Don’t forget to put this in your calendar as we hope to have a full field along with good entertainment, dancing and an excellent meal with lots of fellowship on the day.
