Always a great annual summer tournament, “the Heaps” as it’s affectionately known, attracted 150 players from 19 clubs. Of course it wouldn’t be the Heaps Tournament without heaps of prizes, $7000 worth in fact, plus heaps of food and heaps of fun. A lot of laughter was heard around the course as players enjoyed themselves and each others company and the clubhouse was absolutely buzzing afterwards. The large contingent from Waiuku took us into the evening with their talented guitarist and lyrical repertoire. Trophies were awarded to Paikea Waller (Taumarunui) for best nett over field – 63, Pieta Gilbert (Waimarino) ladies best stableford – 42, John Sneddon (Taumarunui) men’s best stableford – 42 and Jason Simpson (Taumarunui) best gross over field – 70. Congratulations to all the trophy winers and prize winners.
