Southland Senior Men’s Team Named

Josh Kalweit is getting set to make his National Interprovincial debut, with the promising young golfer named as one of five players to represent Southland’s senior golf team at the national tournament later this month.

The Southland team will contest the tournament at Hastings from November 26 to 30 and features youth, with Kalweit joined by New Zealand U19 champion Liam Hewitt, as well as the experience of Matt Tautari, Liam Balneaves and Leith Campion.

Hole in One – again

Drummond Golf Club member Daryl Corbin has scored his second hole in one for the year; achieving the feat on the par-3 No. 5 hole, known as the “nest”, with a 9 iron from the tee.
