Today we had a reasonable sized group from Redwood Park come and join us. They enjoyed the course immensely.
The Nicholson Auto Group Ambrose on Saturday 6TH FEB was a roaring success with some outstanding scores – Logan Madden, Luke Meiklejohn and Rhys Thomas shooting a nett 53.33. Attached is the image of a very delighted team being rewarded for their efforts by Andrew Lingard of Nicholson Auto Group. They were followed closely by team Keyte 54.5 and then team Steffert with 55.67 on count back from Toby Putney’s group.
The generous items offered by Skyline Skyrides, Rotorua Duck Tours, Lakeland Queen and a Hurricanes Jersey donated by Nicholson Auto Group ensured a well-supported auction.
Longest Day Challenge
Congrats to Bev Hansen, Peter Fulham & John Purcell for their efforts on Friday 15th January in completing 72 holes in 10 hours and 10 mins or 51,730 steps for the Longest Day Cancer Society fund raiser- A great cause and a brilliant way of working off those extra helpings over Christmas aye JP! There was great support throughout the day from work colleagues and various members. $1620 was raised- well done team.
Some interesting quotes from the day
JP on the 71st hole “I’ve worked out who the boss is” – “it’s Bev”
Bev on the 68th hole- “great drive Pete”.. Pete’s reply “I haven’t hit the ball yet Bev”
JP- “I’ve had this ball for 54 holes”. Out of Bounds next shot
