The United September Golf Croquet weekend tournament was held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September 2015. This is the first time we have run a GC event in September. An AC event has been run in September for several years and will be held 26th and 27th September.
The weather was kind with no rain and plenty of sun for his time of the year.
Six players entered the Open event. It was played as a double round robbin with five 13-point games played each day. Edmund Fordyce (Waireka, South Canterbury) won all his games to take the event and reduce his handicap to 1. Tony O’Donnell (United) was runner up winning eight games. John Borner (St Martins) took third place.
The handicap event had a field of eleven and was played as a round robin with six games on Saturday and five on Sunday and each player having one bye. The winner of the handicap was Connell Leahy (Blenheim), winning 9 of his 10 games. Rosalind Thomson (United) and Lin Cross (Holmes Park) both won seven games. Rosalind had one net point more than Lin to take second place.
