Congratulations to our winning team of Janine Morris (Women’s Club Captain), Di Barnes, Jude Davis, Melanie Smith and Denise Tovio who represented Rawhiti today in a challenge game against Hororata in the prestigious Boyle Cup.
This cup has been competed for since 1914 when it was presented to Christchurch Ladies’ Golf Club as a Canterbury Inter-Club challenge trophy. Rawhiti has had three opportunities since the inception of this trophy to make a challenge – the first on 23 March 2007 and then 24 April 2009. This third ever challenge on 20 August 2015 has made history for us.
Our team was jubilant with this result and our club is hugely proud of their achievement. The trophy will be displayed proudly over the next few months with the first opportunity for clubs to challenge being made by 1 March 2016.
