Managers Notes
Happy New Years everyone,   
I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas and New Year.
Karina, Lucas and I welcomed a very cute little baby girl into the world on the Boxing day. Pippa-Ella Karen Schofield. 6 pound 8.
We have a full on start to 2016. Midweek has already started on Tuesdays, Vets days started on Thursdays and Our Club Scramble started on Sunday.
Remember to come along and support our mini Tournaments! We would love to see all of you at them. 
We had the Waikato Vets here on Thursday the 21st January. We had an awesome field of 80 enjoying the sunshine.
The Waipa Classic kicks off for long weekend on the 30th January, if you would like to enter this tournament, come in and fill out your entry forms at the club.
Our Club Opening day is on the 14th of February. There will be a draw with members names on it. It is up to you to tick your name to let us know you will play or cross your name off if you can't.
We are hoping to create a big club day on one Sunday of each month. We will do a draw and mix everyone up. Please support these days if you can.  
We have representative golf coming up. Please put your name up on the sign up sheets if you would like to play in these teams. The more members that would like to play the better.
We have a lot going on in the next few months, so come out and play in as much as you can this summer and enjoy the sunshine.
See you out there,
Club Manager.
