Playing a stableford, Ryan Coll almost managed to break the now lofty heights of 40 points, falling just short on 39. Tied for second was Mike Osborne and Keven Klucas on 37 and then Graham Sinclair 35 and Patrick McBride on 34.

Sunday's club match between Greymouth and Hokitika was postponed due to marginal weather forecasts so there will be a revised date, but members still turned up in enough numbers to hold a 4BBB which was won by the pairing of Jeremy Aranga and Phil Thompson with 42 points.

Second was the combination of Pete Theron and Pete McGee on 41 points and third were Carolyn Williams and Lindsay Robertson with 40 points.

Two's were harder to find over the weekend with only Patrick McBride, Ryan Coll and James Hardie managing birdie's on the par 3's.

This weekend is all about the Karamea Winter tournament and while there are a number of Greymouth members planning on travelling North to support the small Karamea club, the forecast at this stage is looking anything but dusty. Fingers crossed. There will be matches arranged for those planning to stay closer to home.

Finally a shout out to promote the upcoming musical quiz that is being arranged by Raymond to be held at the golf club on 25th July at 7pm.

Teams are 4-6 people, $10 per person which includes supper, open to anyone not just golf members.

There is an entry sheet up on the clubhouse notice board or contact Raymond on 027 8191818. A fun night guaranteed.


Saturdays Bogey was again played in excellent winter conditions with Leo McIntyre winning the match with plus 3. Matt Wilson was plus 2, with Shane Minhinnick and Peter Foster square.

It was also the second round of the Chapman Cup and after the first round leader Neville Johnson and Dean Cummings both had a two round aggregate score of plus 1 a chip off was required to determine the winner. Once again the underdog prevailed with Cummings adding another trophy to his cabinet.

There was a good field for the Wednesday Stableford on June 24th with Tony Reynolds bringing back his usual game and running out the winner with 39 points. Tom Patterson had 38 points, Shaun Meldrum 37 points and John MacPherson 36 points.

Twos for the week were scored by Jim Cross, Tony Reynolds, Peter Reynolds, Cummings and Meldrum.

This weekend Karamea host their popular winter tournament while in Hokitika the match on Saturday is a Stableford and on Sunday there is a Double plus bogey.
