The new 8th green project is coming along very nicely. I had a sneak peek last Friday and a chat to the hardworking team. It’s going to be a beautiful 2 tier green with some challenges on the left of the green (a new bunker), and a drop off to the right.

Course Matters

The 11th Fairway is now in full playing condition. Please continue to tee up golf balls on the 16th Fairway until further notice.

Interclub Pennants

We had 2 teams that played on Sunday. The Intermediates lost to Omanu 3-6 with the only singles winner being Brett Dingle who hung tough for a win on the 18th. The Juniors had their first loss of the year to Tauranga by 3.5-5.5. Gordy Wingate and Al Nicholls won both their singles and four all matches. Great to see Al playing some good golf again.

A reminder to everyone that if you want to make a tee booking in the Clubhouse to use the computers yourself and not do it through the office. Deb and Sandra are busy enough without having to do your bookings online.

Green Shed

Another busy week on the course with the contractor putting the finishing touches to the bund and walkway. Hydroseeding took place Monday and Tuesday so we will start to see some green tinges in a fortnight or so. The contractor forming the green is well on the way to dressing the area with topsoil and informs me that he could be finished by the end of the week. The green itself and the tee are coming along nicely but it will be a few months before they come into play. The 9th and 18th tees will move back to their normal places within the next day or two.

There seems to be a few members that think that the staff are allowing volunteers to perform more duties than themselves. Do these members realize that the staff have done half a days work before members get to the course!!! We do not have a resident mechanic therefore all the maintenance servicing and sharpening of machinery falls into their hands. They have to deal with paperwork company reps and new product education and a thousand other things. So if you see a volunteer pitching in doing something why not give him or her a hand, (the staff are busy doing something else)

Just a reminder that coring week starts on the 12th of April. Your help would be much appreciated.

Fabulous day here Monday with the Omokoroa Number 1 school. Here is the correspondence we received from the Principal...

Thanks again to the Omokoroa Golf Club and your team for letting us use the course for our first dads Golf day. We all had a great time and are definitely keen to make it an annual event on our fundraising calendar.

Hilton Gardiner is the one who hit the hole in one.

Glenn Meikle is the owner of 'Mount Brewing Company' and Riki Walls (red shirt) is the owner of 'The Flying Mullet'. They both donated the prize of 50 Dozen Big Bottles (crates) to the winner. They have sponsored approximately 30 Golf Tournaments over the past 4 years and this is the first time that someone has hit a hole in one.
