A fabulous weekend of golf as 78 golfers came to Feilding to play in the 54 Hole Manawatu-Wanganui Open & Feilding Open.
The event was a New Zealand Golf Tier 2 Order of Merit tournament and a Manawatu-Wanganui Golf Tier 1 Order of Merit tournament – so a great opportunity for many up and coming golfers to increase their amateur ranking.
The tournament offered prizes for the best Gross and best Nett players.
Congratulations to Ethan Jones who won the men’s competition shooting an 8 under par 205 ; and Tara Raj shot a 4 under par 218 to take away the honour’s for the women.
In the Nett competition, Ross Geary won the men’s comp with a Nett score of 210; and Vonese Walker won the women’s comp with a Nett score of 228.
Our Mixed 9 Holers hosted a 9 + 9 Tournament on the 22nd & 23rd April. Believed to be the first of it’s kind, and the brainchild of Russell Parker, this inaugural tournament was a huge success. 84 9 holers from Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa, Manawatu and Wellington played 9 holes on the Wednesday and played a 2nd 9 holes on the Thursday. Adele provided a wonderful dinner for all on Wednesday evening.
A big thanks to our 9 hole committee and in particular Russell Parker who has worked very hard behind the scenes to make this tournament happen.
Thanks also to Adele, Rebecca and their team who did a fantastic job of keeping everyone well fed – thanks Adele and Becs!
