Waikato Junior Golfing Society Boys and Girls Championships

The Bhullar siblings – Jindh, Nihal and Shaam competed in the Waikato Junior Golfing Society Boys and Girls Championships at St Andrews Golf Club in Hamilton on Sunday 16th June. These three juniors are outstanding ambassadors for our club and we are very proud of them.

Jindh, much to her own surprise, won the net division and the Waikato Under 21 Girls Net Cup. Nihal and Shaam also competed well and Nihal placed 4th in the boys division on what was a wet and windy day.

Well done all of you!

Congratulations Jindh Bhullar - winner of the Waikato Under 21 Girls Net Cup.

Junior Tournament

A very special 9 Hole Tournament was held on Sunday 28th April for junior golfers who have been learning the game within the Junior Golf Academy introduced at the beginning of Term One.

Teams of four competing for school honours were submitted by Ngakonui Valley School, National Park School, Turaki School, Taumarunui High School and two teams from Owhango School.

Entry was free, as was the food and drinks provided by the Taumarunui Golf Club afterwards.

Thanks go to Paper Plus, Bowyer Motors and Terry Kay for prizes as well as parents and club members who turned out to help.

Congratulations to all the participants. Main results are:

1st National Park School – 245 Gross

2nd Turaki School – 258 Gross

3rd Owhango 1 – 262 Gross

Organiser Pete Jacobson hopes to run another tournament next school holidays weather permitting.

Junior Golf Academy

Thanks to the enthusiasm of Roy Frampton and volunteer club members, the new Junior Golf Academy for local primary school students got underway recently. Students from Owhango, Ngakonui Valley, Turaki, Manunui and National Park schools have come on board in the first school term. This is an exciting opportunity for the club to grow the game of golf amongst primary school students in Taumarunui.
