Poverty Bay - East Coast golf roundup
Poverty BayMARG Colebourne’s vein of form reached a rich high with victory in the Primo Cup final on Saturday.
Colebourne had three birdies, including a two, in her 83-16-67.
In the Primo Cup format, a player takes their net score for the front nine and subtracts from their stableford points for the back nine.
Colebourne had net 34 minus 23 points for a score of 11.
Debbie Kirkpatrick was second and Gray Clapham third.
Colebourne iced her victory cake and cash prize by also winning the drawn partners’ competition. She was drawn with Leigh Fletcher, who was fifth on the individual standings.
Clapham prevented a female whitewash of the top five as Verna Harnett was fourth.
The club’s prize-giving for the season followed the round.
Allan White produced near flawless golf to win the division 1 men’s stableford with his equal-best round of the year on Sunday.
White fired even-par 72-7-65, for 43 points.
Vance Richardson’s recent hot round at the Bay earned him more than a club competition win and a confirmed place in the men’s shootout final.
Richardson, who carded 73-10-63 on November 3, was also drawn as the week 5 winner of a $989 lawn mower in the Toro Mower Challenge run through NZ Golf.
Richardson topped division 1 with an adjusted stableford score of 43.2 points for that week and his name was drawn from the three division winners of the challenge during which 10 mowers are given away over a 10-week period.

Te Puia SpringsWAYNE Rasmussen tried to claim he should be given a birdie for his experience on the seventh tee on Sunday.

“That should be a birdie for me on this hole,” he said to his mates.
