SOUTH OTAGO HALBERG – FEBRUARY 2022
About 40 golfers, including 10 Eagles enjoyed a great day out at the South Otago Halberg held at Toko Golf Club on Sunday February 13.
It was a little bit damp overhead but the course was in great order and such was the generosity of so many sponsors everyone got a prize.
The golfers were generous too and the organisers were able to sell 7 raffles - 700 tickets...absolutely amazing.
Special guests on the day were Halberg representative Cherie Oldham and Eagles Vice president (now President) Bob Brent. Approximately $1900 was raised on the day.
The winners of the top prizes were local club members Lisa Rutherford with 36 points and Murray Scott with 42. (Pictured with Otago Eagles Club Captain Murray Nyhon).

In the ladies Laurel Brent was third with 30.
WEST OTAGO HALBERG, 25 APRIL
A mild day greeted the good numbers of golfers which arrived to play in the West Otago Halberg, held this year at the Heriot Golf Club on Anzac Day, 25th April 2022. As the afternoon wore on a southerly change cooled things considerably and most were very happy to finish just ahead of the rain. However the course was in great condition and a credit to the locals who look after it.
This event is played in conjunction with the challenge between the neighbouring Tapanui and Heriot clubs for a much sought-after trophy, the Harrison Weaver Rosebowl. Again this year the result was very close, with the visitors taking the trophy back to Tapanui by a tiny margin.
Locals dominated the prizes for the day, and detailed results will be gathered and published in our next newsletter.
Afterwards all were treated in the clubhouse to a wonderful array of food supplied by the ladies, and numerous raffles of farm-killed meat which proved immensely popular.
All told, a wonderful day with a healthy amount of money raised for Halberg, thanks to the efforts of the local Eagles.
Sincere thanks to the Heriot and Tapanui Eagles for a wonderful day.
