Atrocious conditions prevailed again today with the greens more like lakes,
but it did not affect Malo Duggan who won the 18 hole bogey round (all
The best of the 9 holers were Jennie Higgins (1 down) and Sandra Berkers
(2 down) That's it for August and we have fingers crossed for better

Hidden holes- Colin Vincent.
Payout- 29 points.
During August, there were fields of 15,11, 17 and 14 for Riverside veteran golfers with one Wednesday completely washed out and another day reduced to nine holes. As the weather improves hopefully the numbers will increase. For those of you who are interested in playing on a Wednesday
Tim Brooker and Ross Browne were consistently in the money.
During August Riverside hosted two Waikato vet golf days. On August 7, despite dire weather forecasts, 49 players representing 15 clubs came to play at the Lochiel course. The course was in great condition and gained many great comments. Local golfer Ross Brown eclipsed the field with a sizzling 75 gross and Ngahinepouri members Warren Rodgers took out the stableford prize with 45 points.
Narrows hosted the Waikato District Veteran Golfers' Association AGM on August 14. Seventy-five golfers attended the meeting and 59 played the course afterwards. In fine and sunny conditions Alan Sarjant, from Waihi, topped the order with a gross 82 and association secretary Graeme Hill, Te Aroha, scored the best stableford with 38 points. Seventeen clubs were represented.

The rain once again affected our regular midweek having only one player finishing and several pulling the pin after 9 holes, fingers crossed this wet weather comes to an end soon and we get some sunny days with some good numbers.
