Boys' School Old Boys' Golf Tournament

February 18, 2013 at 10:40 AM

On 8th February 2013, the 3rd annual Golf Tournament for Old Boys of the Boys’ School was held at the Royal Auckland Golf Course with a full field of 18 teams.

At registration all golfers were given goodie bags containing sponsors’ products.   This was followed by a light lunch and a briefing on the rules.  All golfers then headed off to their designated tees for a 1pm shot-gun start.

During the round drinks and snacks were delivered to the groups out on the course.  This was a welcome respite for the players as the temperature soared in the afternoon.  The playing conditions on the course were exceptional with manicured fairways and lightning fast greens – the golfers were treated to quality playing conditions throughout the day.

Prize giving commenced at 6pm with prizes presented for the first 12 teams, the last team, the three par 3’s, longest drive for men and women. The winners team was James Sheppard, James Ashwin, Steve Smith and Michelle Smith and the runners- up were Jon Ormond, Dave Roberts, Matt Taylor and Matt Stevens.

This was followed by a Grand Prize draw; two nights’ accommodation at The Spire in Queenstown and a round of golf for two people at The Hills which was won by Rob Eng.  A second draw for an acoustic guitar was won by John Hooper.

We would like to thank the support of sponsors who very generously provided hole sponsorship, team prizes and the grand prize draw prizes. Thanks also goes to all the volunteers for the assistance on the day working behind the scenes to ensure the day ran smoothly and was enjoyed by all.
