Even with other events happening around Auckland and throughout New Zealand, the Harcourts Cooper & Co Jack ‘n Jill Classic attracted a strong field of 2o teams and the weather came to the party with a gentle but gusting breeze keeping the temperature manageable for most of the time.
We are very appreciative of the sponsorship from Harcourts Cooper & Co and the support from Joanne Mimmack and James Dixon for their continued support through sponsorship. Even in these interesting times when the number sales of residential properties are so high, Jo and James always seem to be able to be available and support our club. This is a reflection of their professionalism, their dedication and their experience: all factors that enhance their reputations as real estate professionals. If you are thinking of selling or would like an appraisal of the value of your property, Jo and James are ready to help.
The Harcourts Cooper & Co Classic format is over two days with prizes for each day and for the overall winning team. No team can win more than one prize and so there are plenty of winners.
In overall first place for the tournament was the team from Howick: Brian Chapman, Garry Cotter, Neil Fisher and Allison Rennie. They had 30 Game points and 36 Ends.
