At Waiuku Golf Club last week, apart from the usual haggle the club held a competition for the ‘King Cup’, competition based on combined Nett scores Brent Dawson and Dave Yandall (pictured top right), were the winners, but it was a close finish with a countback required to sort out the final positions.
The other side of the King Cup is that the losing teams are forced to put on dresses and serve as barmaids to the rest of the teams for an hour during the evening. The unfortunate souls who ended up in that position on the weekend are pictured below right; Lindsay Russell, John Bancroft, Alan Bancroft and Stephan Maynard.

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.
