Hot summery conditions were the order of the day for the Awhitu Golf Club’s January Open Day. Player of the day was Chris Matthews, who had an excellent nett score of 58 to take the honours in the division two category, with Les Rehm close behind on 46 points and the stableford prizewinner in the same division.
James Varnam, a familiar face, returned to the course for the low round of the day, a 72 gross score. Mike Conroy, with a 64 nett score and Roy Leaming on 41 stableford points were the major prizewinners in division one, with Val Cosseboom being the leading ladies golfer on the day with a 63 nett score.
Andre Rautenbach and Julie Duncan had the longest drives in the men’s and women’s categories and James Varnam and Brian Knott were nearest the pins on the first and tenth holes respectively.
The next Open Day will be held on Sunday 25 February.
