Twilight 6th October

Thanks to the 68 players who helped to celebrate the start of 2021 Twilight season. Nobody got wet but it sure was getting darker out there as the last group finished. One of our sponsors - PaR nz Golfing Holidays came along and helped kick start the Twilight season.

13 teams walked away with prizes last night, thanks to The Clubroom, Bethlehem Butchery, PaR nz golfing holidays and Neighbourhood pizza for their kind sponsorships.

The top finishing teams scored points which will accumulate towards the grand season end prize pool (over $2000). All teams who attended scored at least 1 point just for showing up!! Updated accumulated points totals will be published every Wednesday evening.

A good night for Rose Thompson who got a free meal with the lucky draw from Jarrod.

Next Wednesday Cards in by 4:45pm for 5pm Start so we can hopefully finish in daylight. We will be playing Russian Roulette format (2 players have their Stableford scores multiplied together for each hole)
