South Island Interprovincial

The South Island Interprovincial didn’t produce the results Southland would have liked, but there were still some positives from the two days of golf at Waitikiri Golf Club in Christchurch.

Southland lost three of its four matches (5-3 to Tasman, 5 ½ – 2 ½ to Aorangi and 5-3 to Otago), but managed a very good half with Canterbury (4-all).

Liam Balneaves had three wins from the weekend, Josh Kalweit and Doug Carmichael both had two wins and Matt Tautari had one win and two halves.

The team will be cut back to five from eight for the national Toro Interprovincial later in the year.

Men’s Masters Team

The Southland Men’s Masters team has been named to contest the national Freyberg Masters Tournament in Timaru in early November.

The team is (in playing order): Simon Hollyer, Simon Boland, Peter Buckley, Ngarimu Paraki and Glen Sutherland.

Laing Shield

Another month, another successful defence of the Laing Shield for Nightcaps.

This month challengers Waikaia took on Nightcaps, and put up an excellent fight – with four holes to go it was said to be anyone’s game, however the might of the Dobbie brothers pulled through to give Nightcaps a 4-2 win and earn it another month with the prized shield.

Results were: Kyle Dobbie beat Simon Fraser 2/1, Brett Dobbie beat Al Mckee 2/1, Stu Dobbie beat Noel Hinton 4/2, Ross Mangels beat Tony Leenen 1up, Stan Todd lost to Barry Lawrence 6/5 and Jay Petherick lost to Norman Welsh 3/2.

The next challenge will be from Dipton.

Gilmour Rosebowl

Tuatapere has retained the Gilmour Rosebowl, also defeating Waikaia in its latest challenge.

With four matches decided on the 18th, this was a very close game, but Tuatapere pushed on for a 4-1 win.

Results were: Bronwyn O’Brien beat Anita Fraser 1up, Christene Dennison beat Vanessa Clark 2up, Lynette Chambers lost to Celia Bowmar 1 down, Tina Van Engelen beat Isobel Lawrence 2/1 and Debbie Fowle beat Coleen Morton 1up.

Tuatapere’s next challenge will be from Invercargill.
