For Thursday 12 May.
This would have been the smallest turnout we have had for years. Only 7 players. However we still had some games and laughs so everyone was a winner. We are at the Whangamata Club every Thursday – be there by 12.50pm to get on the draw. See you there!

The golf adjunct played their own version of Golf's most famous team game - the Ryder Cup. Teams were divided into NZ and Overseas, however we were a few internationals short so we drafted some locals into the overseas team and renamed them the Barbarians. Places were sought after in this classic rematch and despite average weather we had an excellent turnout of 44. The Barbarians went on to beat the NZ team by two matches, the second tragic loss for a NZ team on Sunday. The winning team captain was presented with a very classy gold plated, jewel encrusted trophy to hold until next November.
We also had individual prizes and winners were:
