A stunning day at Waikare Golf Club for the 2023 Waikato Men's Masters Championship! A boomer day with weather fit for short sleeves and bare legs!
This year the format was a shotgun start at 7:45 am for round 1 of the 36-hole event. It was well received and it is very likely that we'll continue with this format.
Stephen Sandford from Pirongia Golf Club AND who also happens to work as the Golf Develpment Officer at Waikato Golf Association, took out the best gross scores of the day with solid rounds of 72, 71 for a total of 143 overall. The Winners Tray already has pride of place here in the WGA offices. The next best gross was Scott Thrupp from RAGGC with a 145 combined score. Michael Bone, from Waitakere was this years Nett winner with scores of 71, 68 for a score of 139! The 2nd place Nett with a combined score of 147 was Corey Natusch from Horsham Downs. Well done and congratulatons to you all!
Many thanks to the crew at Waikare Golf Club for once again showing us the best possible hospitality! Sharleen Fah, who has recently left her post as the manager, will be missed greatly by the WGA Team! We wish her and her lovely familty all the best with her future endeavours. Thank you to Christine Willats for her early arrival, printing of scorecards, running the bar and all the other jobs you performed! You're a champion! Our compliments also to Shelly, the caterer, for dishing out some delicious viddles! A big thank you to the Board Members that were onsite to make sure the day ran smoothly and provided VIP parking for the WGA staff! Another huge thanks to the greens staff for having those greens in mint condition! The player comments were overwhelminly positive! We are already looking forward to the 2024 Waikato Men's Masters Champioship! See you again soon!
