Our annual ladies’ TTT tournament was held last week and was a great success, with a field of 93, 80 of whom were from outside the district. This is awesome for the Golf Club and the town, with so many visitors staying, eating and shopping here. It was a shame that the rain arrived midway through the second day – but thankfully golfers are hardy people and everyone chose to play on.
A big thank you to all the people who chipped in to help our Committee put on a great tournament; the greenkeeper and his volunteers who had the course in such good condition, especially considering the wet weather leading up to the tournament; the 9-hole ladies; the many helpers in the kitchen and all those who helped out in other ways. We could not have done it without you.
Also, a big thank you to our wonderful sponsors who support us so well: Property Brokers, Bradley Livestock and Mitre 10.

As far as Wednesday 10th went, only a handful turned up, no doubt due to the heavy rain (and perhaps golf fatigue from the 2 days before), so no haggle was played and our Property Brokers weekly lottery will be drawn as usual next week.
