Waitikiri Golf Club - Canterbury - September 2015
Waitikiri
A great day was had by all of the 106 players who took their places in the field. A windless fine day, a relief after a week of wet drizzly weather all over the country. With the course playing well good scores were expected. The day started early for some with a breakfast at a local establishment and thanks to Active Electrical Supplies Hornby for the pre-game coffee.
 
An impressive prize table ensured a prize for all – thanks to the many sponsors who made this possible. Especially the hole sponsors all.
Special thanks to Hamer & Bremca who provided on course BBQ’s and to Gerard Trade Supplies and Simx for supplying liquid to wash the sausages down. Thanks to John Barnes the official photographer who took plenty of shots and who had to move fast when an errant tee shot headed straight for him.  The ball in flight was captured.
 
No tournament can be a success without the backroom people so thanks to Vanessa Cooper of Switch Lighting, the staff at Waitikiri and of course Mike at Kraus & Naimer.
