Last Saturday was a normal club sweep day at Rarotonga Golf Club which produced really good golf from a lot of players.
It seems like some are finding their form just in time for the inaugural Prime Foods Golf Tournament which will be held this Saturday with plenty of great prizes, sponsored by Prime Foods, up for grabs.
A big field is expected so golfers should get their names in early to ensure a tee time that suits them.
There were some good scores in last Saturday’s stableford competition – which brought a smile to the face of the handicapper.
Coming in with a nett 57 and 49 points, Rita Howard showed her best form for a long time to be the outright winner on the day.
Playing a relaxed game, Howard hardly put a foot wrong with her drives, approach shots and putting.
She also had the longest drive from the ladies – by about ¾ of a ball!
Young Ngarima Areai seems to improve with every game and won’t be on a high handicap for long. Ngarima came in second with 45 points.
Following with 43 points were Teremoana Hardie, and Katoa (Fotu) Banaba.
The other prize winners were Frank Berg, Teinaki Howard, Eddie Tuaati and Ngatupuna Manuela, all with 42 points, and James Herman and Apii William with 41 points.
There were several players on 40 points but on the day that just wasn’t good enough to be among the winners.
Best gross from the men was a 70 off the stick from Daniel Webb and Kurai Foster was the best of the ladies with an 80.
We are all looking forward to the Prime Foods tournament and another great day playing the wonderful sport of golf.
