2018 Manson Cup

Waimarino and Taumarunui Golf Clubs have contested the interclub Manson Cup since 1952. Fair to say the cup has passed back and forth many times. This year’s challenge on June 10th was held on home turf with the winner being the club with the highest average stableford score.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We came out on top with a 35.71 vs 32.0. Star of the day was our own Jenny Braithwaite with a massive 46 stablefords and fittingly Waimarino’s Club Captain Gareth McGuigan (left) presented the cup to Jenny for Taumarunui along with our Club Captain Ken Detman.

 

 

Snapped On The Course

Players at the Annual Lefties Tournament held at the beginning of September were full of praise for the condition of the Tarrangower Course especially in light of a rather wet winter 2017. These untouched images depict the lush colour of the course as it emerges from winter into the first few days of spring. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m Watching You

Have you heard a raucous commotion around a particular area on the course recently? One game member got close enough to photograph the source of the noise. Commonly known as Sparrow Hawk (also Karearea, Bush Hawk or New Zealand Falcon), this native bird is a fast flying raptor. Piles of feathers from unlucky prey have been spotted near the nest site.
