How good is this?
This drone shot, with Trentham in the background, was taken on Wednesday November 8th by Steve Edwards of Blue Apple Media. What a stunning shot of our beautful golf course! It's in amazing condition at the moment and we should feel very privileged to play here every week.
As part of our ongoing annual requirement for their health, our greens were verti-drained and sanded on Wednesday November 15th. Next day we had 50mm of constant rain that did a great job of washing in the sand. While the greens won't be mown for a week or so and will get a bit furry, we expect them to be perfectly playable by Saturday November 25th.
Here's a picture taken on Friday November 16th of the 10th green.
By the way, the fairways are in great condition after such beautiful rain. Will be lush for quite a few weeks yet.
Local team wins Trentham Plate
The 2017 Trentham Plate has been won by the local Trentham team of Veronica Maher, Christine Schussler, Garry Ford and Bob Hogan, scoring an outstanding 118 points.
Pictured (l-r) are Garry Ford, Elaine Hanson (representing the Hanson family who are donors of the plate), Christine Schussler, Bob Hogan and Veronica Maher.
Veronica, Christine and Garry were three-quarters of the winning team in last year's plate, and they obviously recruited well for a fourth member as Bob was easily the best in the men's event with 43 points. Veronica had 41 points in the women's event.
The individual women's winner was Julie Hanson with 37 points, and the men's individual winner was Ray Rees, Neangar Park GC, also with 37 points. Ray won on a count back from Colin Wilson.
Women's nearest the pins were won by Sue Byrne, Wendy Lewis, Veronica Maher and Noelene Varley. Men's nearest the pins were won by Alan Snowden, Colin Gardner, Simon Ovenden and Tim Maddern.
