Pinehurst Golf

Author -  Shannon Sager

For the first time Pinehurst entered a golf team in the Auckland Premier 9 hole competition. The team was drawn to play all the top teams in the North Shore which included Kristin, Westlake, Rangitoto, Massey and Wentworth. The team played exceptional golf throughout the round robin stage, only losing to Massey who are the current New Zealand Champions.
This remarkable achievement qualified Pinehurst to play against Saint Kentigen who finished top of the Central and South Auckland competition, beating both Auckland Grammar and Kings College. The semi-final was played at Royal Auckland over eighteen holes, and unfortunately our lowest handicapped student could not play due to other golfing commitments in the South Island. The match was a close fought affair with the lead changing on many occasions. On reaching the 16th hole Pinehurst were leading by three shots but unfortunately the pressure caused a few errant shots resulting in us losing by a mere two stokes. The team and I were pleased to have done so well, making it to the semi-finals, but there was also a feeling of disappointment that we didn’t qualify for the final.
Special mention must be made of all the players who performed so well and played together as a team.
Kit Bittle (year 13) who led by example, playing great golf and shooting some amazing low scores.
Brian Park (year 13) who also played solid golf and was an inspiration to our younger players.
Zuji Li (Year 8), a new young player with so much skill and potential.
Subin Wui (year 9) who is currently the only lady in our team but playing off a +0.9 handicap.
Jaewoo Son (year 7) the enthusiastic young man who filled in and played the last two games.
