The Women’s Team Stableford Tournament went ahead after our changes in Covid levels (talk about a curve ball 3 days out). The stress levels calmed down when it was still possible to hold the tournament.  So, what a great day 44 ladies had, not too hot, no NW gale, simply perfect!!  The men did a fantastic job of catering on the day and having to wait on the tables. Well done to them. After some great sponsorship we had an impressive table of prizes up for grabs.
The winning team was Michelle Fletcher, Neroli Davies, Raewyn Davies and Margaret Wright with 125 Stable fords.
Following hot on their heels with 124 Stable fords was Judy McMillian, Jill Allan, Jenny Hulena and Avril Harrison.
Erin Mulholland won the Longest putt as well.  A Great day had by everyone.

 Feb 20 A great start for Hawarden in Templeton Cup opener at Scargill on a very hot afternoon, defeating Rangiora White 4 games to 2 to put us third equal in a field of 21 teams. The team would like to thank Yorston/Mulhollands for providing golf cart and trailer, much appreciated.  
 Feb 28 Templeton Cup Update .Another great result from the team of six with a fine win over Pegasus Blue winning 4 1/2  games to 1 1/2, thanks to our super subs of Bede Crean and Dom Oberholzer for taking two wins as tail-end charlies. This result still keeps Hawarden in the top three of the competition.

Mar 6 The opening round of the Pahau Cup was played at Culverden.  Our match against Cheviot was won by Hawarden 3-1 which was a good result in the dry conditions.  
Mar 14 Templeton Cup: A great win on our home track over a strong (on paper) Rangiora team of 41/2 games to 11/2 has kept Hawarden in the top three.  We have two more qualifying rounds to go before the final eight teams go onto finals matchplay.

We held our Men's Midweek Tournament on Wednesday in excellent daytime conditions which were hard to believe after the weekend's downpour in the province. Despite the the saturation the course was in great condition with only a couple of areas of overlying water, although the creek was running fully but not overflowing.
A smaller field of golfers than usual attended but were all impressed with the course and the day's entertainment.

The Women's Open was held on Wednesday with foggy conditions which lasted all day. However, the cold conditions did not deter the 45 golfers who enjoyed the day by all accounts.

The day dawned beautifully fine which boded well for a great day at the "Cockies Classic" golf tournament on Thursday. With more than 60 golfers participating supported by a host of sponsors, there could not be any doubt that it would be a most successful day. Everyone had great fun and even though temperatures plummeted at the end of the day, the warmth of the clubhouse supplemented by a sumptuous meal and a prize for everyone made it a memorable day for all.
