Have you entered the 2012 Presidents Cup?
All 18 hole members should enter to be in for the chance to win magnificent prizes. Last years’ overall victor, Min Ho, won a full playing membership for 2012 as well as two nights’ accommodation and golf at the Lakes Resort, Pauanui. Runners-up won new irons valued at over $1000 as well as golf weekends at selected courses. In addition, over $500 was up for grabs in both the men's and women's shootouts. This year's prize pool looks like being even better so enter at the pro shop now! See the attached for details and format of competition.
For some teams, the 2012 interclub season has reached finals time.
The Men's Division 1 Otaki Cup Team finished in second place behind Miramar and will now play Miramar in the major semi final on Saturday, May 12 at RWGC for the right to progress directly to the Duncan Cup final. Come along to support the team and watch some great golf. The singles matches will be underway by midday.
The Men's Division 2 Team finished mid-table, just missing out on the play-offs, behind a victorious Wainuiomata.
The Women's Lansdowne Team finished fourth this year behind a combined team from Te Marua/ Titahi/Martinborough/BFHGC. The Otaki/Paraparaumu/Miramar team was second leaving all the clubs fielding their own teams in their wake. It is hoped WGI will look at ways to give this competition more validity next year given it is no longer regarded as the premier competition, but is still the only one played over 36 holes.
Grant Smith Memorial
This annual Anzac Day tournament was played in fine, breezy conditions with a good field taking part in Canadian mixed foursomes format. The participation of Grant Smith’s family, not just to present the trophy, but also to join in the fun on the course made the event particularly notable this year. The Smith family have a long standing association with Shandon and it was fantastic to have them there. In a close fought contest, the trophy was won by Michael Williams and Margaret McKay with 37 stableford points.
Shandon is noted for the high quality of course condition members enjoy compared to other local golf clubs. Please help sustain this happy situation by conscientiously raking bunkers, replacing divots and repairing pitch marks, and ensuring your guests do likewise.
