Awhitu Golf holds January open day

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.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
