Member Update – from Club Captain Doug Claridge

It’s another fine day forecast for golf this Saturday. The course continues to be dry and fast on the fairways and the green staff are watering the greens regularly through the day, as I found out whilst standing on the 13th green when the sprinklers came on. The wetting was a welcome relief from the 30-degree heat that Christchurch was experiencing! With the regular watering of the greens pitch marks are more noticeable, please remember to repair your pitch marks and if you can’t find your own, repair someone else’s.

The men’s 4BBB competition is under way. The second round of qualifying is this weekend, with the first round matches of match play scheduled for the 13th of March. The draw will be completed for the 32 pairs who qualify next week and posted in the Proshop and online. At present there are 43 pairs entered, with the leaders at nett 60, and the 32nd pair on 71. I expect there will be some movement on the leader board after Saturday’s round. For those not playing in the 4BBB it is a stableford round. Ladies have a hidden holes stableford.

Next week is a monthly medal. It is off the black tees for all grades. As with the blue tees monthly medal, there has been a change in the course rating. Players now receive a number of shots when moving from the white tees where the course slope rating is 117 (white) to 125 (black). I move from a 6 on the white to a 10 on the black. The black tees is a challenge, but not so much to intimidate you!

We are pleased to announce that Ray and Annette Tansey of Allprint Marketing Services have agreed to sponsor both the Ladies and Men’s shootout competition this year.

The winner of each competition will receive a 2 night stay in a one-bedroom apartment at the Tekapo Luxury Apartments, 9 (or 18 holes if you wish) of golf for 2 players at the Mackenzie Golf course, two vouchers to the Silver River Night Sky Stargazing Experience and a $50.00 voucher to be used at the Kohan Japanese restaurant in Tekapo.

This is an excellent prize for these competitions and no doubt will be keenly sort after, and we would like to thank Ray and Annette for their continued support of the Harewood Golf Club.

Armstrong Motor Group Twilight 2021 – Night 3
Allow images

The 3rd night of the Armstrong Motor Group Twilight Series 1 was a beautiful evening with 38 players enjoying a benign (for some) front 9.

The Ladies division was keenly contested with Lydia Pomeroy back in the winners circle but only on countback from Victoria Webb-Smart, both with 22 points, with an in-form Annette Pringle taking 3rd spot on 21. NTP was a rollover from the previous week with Annette also taking home the $50 pro shop voucher.
In the Men’s division Jason Blair went back-to-back with an impressive 23 points, one better than 50-year Harewood member Allan Double with Daniel Sandilands taking 3rd on countback over 3 others with 20. NTP went to Scott Double.
A reminder that players need to enter 4 scores during the 6-week series to be eligible for the overall series prizes on March 16th.
Please book in early as we do have a limit to how many we can get on one 9 each week. And more importantly if you book and then can’t make it please advise the pro shop as we may have a wait list.
