Trans-Tasman Cup 2020
Two Southlanders – Robyn Boniface and Robyn Pullar – represented New Zealand earlier this week, playing for the New Zealand Women’s Seniors golf team as they took on Australia.

Australia retained the prized Trans-Tasman Cup, winning 8 ½ – 3 ½.

Australia won the Foursomes and Fourballs 5-1 (Boniface and Pullar scoring the win for New Zealand) and then the singles 3 ½ – 2 ½, with Robyn Pullar earning a half.

Outstanding to see two Southlanders wearing the silver fern with pride.

Hole in One
Allan Smith shot a hole in one at Queens Park last week, on hole no. 2.

South Island Strokeplay Championships
Matt Tautari finished seventh at the South Island Strokeplay Championships at St Clair over the weekend with rounds of 67, 73 and 71. Liam Hewitt finished 15th with rounds of 73, 67 and 73. The event was shortened to 54 holes due to rain.

New Zealand Women’s Seniors Championships
Fifteen Southland ladies contested the NZ Women’s Seniors Championships in Taupo last week and returned home with some good results.

Robyn Boniface qualified second and Robyn Pullar fourth, and Boniface went on to bow out in the semi-finals, losing her match 2 down.

In Division 4 Waikaka’s Dianne Cleland lost in the final on the 20th hole.

In Division 6 Brenda Duncan (Gore) lost in the semi-final and Sheree Hemi (Te Anau) lost in the semi-final of the plate.

In Division 8 Robyn Kennard (Tuatapere) won the Waihi Trophy and Tina Van Engelen (Tuatapere) won Flight 1.

This was the 72nd Championships, and attracted more than 120 ladies from throughout New Zealand and Australia. Competitors started the tournament with an 18-hole strokeplay round before qualifying into eight divisions of 16 and competed for three days in match play.
