Sparkling greens promise great day
Par for course: Rangiora Golf Club professional Peter Giles holding a teaching clinic for children
The Rangiora Golf Club hosts its sixth pro-am
tournament on Tuesday, October 16.
As in past years the event promises to be an
exciting one for both players and spectators,
as the field is exceptionally strong, with 42
professionals each playing with three
Tee-off will be at 7.30am. Because of recent
doses of rain and good sunshine the course is
in sparkling order and spectators will
thoroughly enjoy the day out. Rangiora Golf
Club professional Peter Giles is thrilled with
the state of the course.
"The greenkeeper does a great job, and
conditions are perfect for a great tournament."
The Rangiora tournament is part of a circuit,
and follows on from a two-day pro-am in
Kaikoura. This moves on to the Charles Tour
Event played at the Harewood Golf Course. It
is full on for the players.
Giles is excited about the standard of golf
that is sure to be witnessed -- low scoring and
great to watch.
Major sponsors to be thanked are the
Robbie's group as well as newcomers Stadium
Cars. Without this support the Pro-Am would
not be quite the event it always
promises to be.
Players include Te Anau's David
Klein, second in the PGA Order of Merit,
who claimed the third win of his
professional career when he won the
72-hole Taranaki Energy Open, a
Charles Tour event this year.
New Plymouth professional Grant
Moorhead successfully defended his
Tahiti Open title this year and was a
member of the Eisenhower Trophy
winning New Zealand team in 1992 as
well as scoring various triumphs in the
South Pacific. Add to the mix Troy Ropia who
is showing great form -- winning the pro-am in
Wanganui three weeks ago.
Local North Canterbury golf professionals
will be out there as well -- Pegasus Golf Club's
Craig Mitchell and Brett James
for example. Peter Giles is of
course keen to do well.
"Hopefully I will be in good
form," he says.
"Of course there will be
plenty of socialising going on --
but that is what golf is by nature."
Assistant professional James Devlin is very
excited about competing in his first golf pro-
am as well.
It is all great for the club, the players and
the spectators, and as the tournament is a
major fundraiser, the benefits will be ploughed
right back in.
All are welcome to come and watch, and
there are still some spots left in the field.
