Congratulations to Marton Golf Club for winning the Handicap Pennant finals yesterday on their home course. Marton won the right to host the semi final and final day by finishing top of the round robin stages. In the Semi finals Marton defeated Feilding 6 - 3, which set up a final against Manawatu after they defeated Levin 5 - 4 in the other semi.
In the afternoon final, Marton managed to get the 5 required wins over Manawatu just as it was getting dark, and the final official result was 5.5 - 3.5. We understand that a bit of slow play had crept into some matches, hence the late finish.
Manawatu Wanganui Golf President Martin Townend awarded the pennant to the very deserving Marton team of Colin Williams, Kelvin Feild, Nigel Belsham, Glen Jongen, Graham Marshall and Richard Ellery.
A big thanks to everyone that took part in this very good handicap pennant competition throughout the year.
