This week is the second week of the Business House Golf Ambrose and despite the successful Vaka Eiva being on last week, there were still 300 players showing their golf skills on the Rarotonga Golf Course.

Result last week proves that the Thursday teams were consistent in comparison to Friday teams. Thursday nett winner Ziconie with a mighty 15.81 gross of 24 and 7 under par. Friday nett winner Te Mana Arai could only manage a 16.12 gross of 25 and 5 under par. There were also 7 eagles and 75 birdies recorded on Thursday compared to no eagles and 78 birdies on Friday.

Afterwards a performance by the Taokia brothers kept the members socialising throughout the night.

This week we anticipate increasing the number of participants on the course testing their skills. There are weekly great prizes to be won on most holes for the nearest to the pin, best nett and best gross and longest drives.

Major sponsors have stepped up this year in support of the tournament contributing both monetary and product prizes so meitaki atupaka to all the sponsors.

Next week we will farewell our four juniors, Jojo Karati, Karika Karika, Leo Davey (Aitutaki) and Anna Howard, who are travelling to NZ to compete in the Auckland Age Grade Golf Champ and Whitford Age Grade Golf Champ.

The team will be joined by Teariki Smith and Tony Turua both playing for the Grange Golf Club in Auckland and William and Rotana Howard playing for the Rotorua Golf Club.
