North Canterbury played their annual match against Nelson at the Hanmer Springs Golf Club over the weekend with four teams represented from each region which includes junior, senior, intermediate and masters players. The North Canterbury Seniors came back strongly on the second day of play winning three of four matches to square up their contest at six games all with both Andrew Green and Oscar Cadenhead earning two wins from their two matches played. The Nelson Masters were too strong for the North Canterbury team only dropping half a game in their dominant victory. The North Canterbury Juniors staged a sterling fightback on Sunday but Nelson prevailed 5.5 – 4.5 in the end. Kazuma Kobori had two wins from his two singles matches in the junior section. The North Canterbury Intermediate team easily defended the trophy they won last year outclassing Nelson 8.5-1.5.
