Business house golf getting hot

Thursday 3 February 2011 | Published in Regional


The eighth week of Business House Golf created some extraordinary results.

Budget Bullets lead by Arthur Pickering and his up and coming juniors Rotana Howard and Teariki Smith came back with a 9 under par with a gross of 22 and a nett of 14.25.

The other team that equalled the same result with an eagle and 7 birds was team Kura lead by another up and coming junior William Howard.

Teams are now competing to place in the top 24 for the grand final playoff in 4 weeks time to win return tickets for 6 to Aitutaki and other fabulous prizes to go with it.

Leading the pack in the Nett competition is team Fisherman lead by ‘Robocop’ Arama Tera and his troop with 113.33 and closely followed by Ziconie lead by tough man Tere Taio and his young guns.

Still in the hunt with only 1 to 3 points difference is Te Nira Store, Yellow Pages, Team PJs, Edgewater, Tumeke Movies and Team Kura.

Leading the pack in the Gross competition is Air New Zealand with their secret weapon prime minister Henry Puna leading the team at 205 followed by the tough man Tere Taio’s team Ziconie on 206 and Air Rarotonga lead by gold medalist Daniel Webb on 207.

Round 9 and 10 will be a critical week of the tournament to separate the warriors from the social team so it is up to all the team captains to make sure that all your players are registered by week 10 and no further transfers from teams.

This Thursday and Friday the BHGC will be hosted by a local band to entertain everyone for the rest of the evening and hopefully view the rugby sevens on the big screen on Friday evening.

Last Saturday the club hosted the Hugh Henry Memorial Golf Tournament and the Classic Pair Tournament with a big turnout of members in red and white uniforms in tribute to Hugh for his great contribution to the world of golf and a great appreciation to all his children and family who supported this tournament.

Again another young talent Jojo Karati and Edgewater manager Chris McGeown ripped the course with an excellent result of 1 under par gross of 69.

Both Jojo and Chris share the Hugh Henry trophy for the 2011 season.

Sadly a happy young Jojo Karati will depart Rarotonga this weekend to further his golfing and education in Christchurch. The club wishes all our juniors, Jojo Karati, Teariki Smith, Rotana Howard, Tony Turua, William Howard and Stanley Urlich, all the best in their golfing quest and education development in New Zealand.
