TRENTHAM WIN SILVER IN THE WELLINGTON REGION CHAMPIONS OF CHAMPIONS
Trentham Camp managed a second place team finish at the recent Wellington Golf Champion of Champions event against all champions in the Wellington Region, a fantastic event and great Trentham Camp team that performed really well against some excellent golfers (Masterton won the team event with their senior player shooting 7 under par for the opening round and even par for the second round!)
The whole club congratulates the achievement of Mike Jensen, Andrew Torrence and Erich Jahnke
The 2018 Hunt Electrical Men’s and Women’s Trentham Open was played on Saturday 17th November and once again the conditions were fine and calm. 136 golfers represented the field from various clubs all around the Wellington region. This year we had a record field and thanks to the generous support of our sponsors over $2400 in prizes.
The club once again is grateful for the support given to our open from our principal sponsor Hunt Electrical Ltd. This year Powder Coating Services Seaview sponsored our longest drive and closest the pin prizes and the club are truly thankful for their support. Wattyl gave our tournament a bit of colour (excuse the pun) and provided two very generous prizes for the Wattyl challenge hole on our number 15 hole. Thanks also goes to David Thwaites team at the Golf Warehouse (who are incidentally our hole in one sponsor at Trentham Camp) who gave generous discounts for prizes and tossed in extra golf balls. Once again Kevin Smith Golf Coach provided a free golf lesson. I spoke to the chap who won the lesson and he said Kevin has help his driving.
Thanks also goes to the active participation of member volunteers including marshals, course volunteers, referees, scorers, sausage sizzlers, thanks also goes to our caterers who all helped make this a successful tournament
Also the green staff has been doing a terrific job looking after the course and a number of visitors commented how well the course was prepared.
Congratulations go to our 2018 champions

Trentham Camp Golf Club Shootout
Today’s shootout was greeted with much anticipation and curiosity as it has been also 14 years since TCGC has held it last shootout. The weather gods mainly smiled and the three pools of players men’s gross, men’s nett and women’s nett manage to play most of the competition in dry conditions except for light rain on the last hole.
It was a day enjoyed by all and was finished with a umu and club house company.
