NBS Open Tournament Results
SATURDAY 24th MARCH 2018 – NBS Open Tournament Report
Saturday morning started off rather wet but the skies cleared and it turned out to be a beautiful day. There was a keen group of 94 players who competed for 2 men’s and 1 ladies division. Due to the wet conditions, following 3 days of rain, players were given a 1 club length placing. The putting surfaces were in magnificent condition. The over 30 visitors to the club really appreciated the presentation of the course by Brendan and his team.
Special thanks to the tournament sponsor Peter Havill and NBS. Thank you also to support sponsors being Bowater BMG, who offered a brand new car for a whole in one on the 3rd, and Hello World Nelson, Total Golf and Blue Berry IT.

2017 Fidelity Life Open Cup - Report
2017 Fidelity Life Open Winner – Josie Rosser receiveing the cup from Mark Sheehan of +4 Insurance.
The 2017 Fidelity Life Open was a huge success with almost one hundred (100) players competing in the single stableford format on a wonderfully prepared golf course in the middle of the club championship season.
Fidelity Life have been long supporters of this tournament and it has become a real “must play” tournament in the region. The prize table is second to none for a one day event and their sponsorship is really what makes for this fantastic golf day.
This year’s winner of the tournament was Nelson club member Josie Rosser with an awesome 43 stableford points. Josie took away the fabulous Fidelity Life Cup trophy along with a Taylor Made hybred club, worth a cool $700…well done Josie!!
Plus4 Insurance Solutions sponsor a Hole in One prize of a brand new car supplied by Bowater Motors at the 17th hole. In 2017, no-one was able to find that Ace in the Hole and walk away with the big prize but Hubert Martin did score a hole in one on the day at the 3rd hole. Thanks Hubert for the shout & thanks to Plus4 & Total Golf for doubling the club shout on the night.
In front of a packed balcony, the pressure will be on to see who gets closest to the pin from the 90 mtr marker. Isaac Wiffin took out the prize with a fantastic shot winning an M2 Driver!!

2017 Mobil Tournament Report
This year’s tournament was threatened by forecasts of horrible weather, which unfortunately led a few people to scratch their name off the entry sheet. However, I am delighted to report that the day turned out to be sunny for the most part, with only a few sprinkles of rain catching a few of the tail enders.
The sun definitely shines on those that matter….golfers!!
We had 99 players competing in three divisions to get their hands on the great array of prizes that our tournament sponsors had generously provided. Along with our Major sponsor, John & Maureen Gifkins from the Mobil sites at Tahunanui and Stoke, we also had great support from Seifried Estate Wines, Hello World Nelson, Blueberry IT Nelson, and Shelley Carppe of Mike Pero Stoke. Thanks go to all of the sponsors for their generosity.
Young Josh Simpson went very close to winning the $5,000 of fuel vouchers for a hole in one at the tricky 17th, Josh’s tee shot caught a piece of the hole as it passed by, but unfortunately it didn’t make that crucial drop in to the hole. Unlucky Josh, better luck next time round!
With the majority of players in the men’s divisions, there were 11 prizes in each of those, so there were lots of happy players at the end of the day.
The main winners from each division were as follows:
Ladies Winner was Michelle Reardon with 34 points
2nd place went to Maree West on 33 points
3rd place went to Kathryn Maloney on 32 points and
4th place went to Lizzie Neale on 30 points.
Mens Division 1 was won by Nick Thomsen with 38 points
2nd place went to Blair Riordan on 38 points
3rd place went to Zane Lyttle on 37 points and
4th place went to Nathan Moore (Takaka) on 36 points.
Mens Division 2 was won by Dennis Andrews with 40 points
2nd place went to John Dallimore on 38 points
3rd place went to Mike Simpson on 37 points and
4th place went to John Fielding on 36 points.
Nearest the pin prizes went to the following:
3rd Maree West 6th John Dallimore 15th Ken Packer
As the day was about fun, we also had a lucky draw for 6 players to be chosen to compete in a bunker shootout – from the bunker behind the 18th green. The winner was whoever got closest to the pin from the bunker. There were groans of pain and suffering from the players selected from the lucky draw, as no-one relished being under the pressure of playing a bunker shot with the assembled crowd cheering on for the balcony above. So, the “lucky” players chosen were put in first name alphabetical order for the shootout:
Ash Bradley, Brent Williams, Brian Hogg, Daniel Endersby, Issac Wiffen and Steve Yates.
Ash played a wonderful shot that would have impressed even the television cameras, the rest of the players…..didn’t!! They were more like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Ah well, at least they all got a new ball for their efforts, and Ash won the fantastic prize of $200 of Mobil fuel vouchers for his shot of the day – Well done Ash!
Thanks for your support!!
Major Sponsor John Gifkins, from Mobil Tahunanui and Stoke, presenting the main prizes to the winners of each division:
