Danie van Antwerpen and Pikkie Champion on top of their game

Walvis Bay Golf Club news

05 December 2019 | Sports

The 54 players that competed in the Namib Mills better ball competition was the biggest field for many a month and what a good day it was.

Nearly everyone was in on the prizes and winning the day on 45 points was Danie van Antwerpen and Pikkie Champion.

The second place losing the count out went to Pieter Fox and Anton van Rensburg.

The rest and eight teams on 41 points, and just that one lipped putt could have made 42 points.

Andre Gouws was on hand to present the prizes and to a thunderous round of applause committed to being back next year.

At the same time the popular Air Namibia Race to Cape Town which was played in conjunction with the Namib Mills, also attracted a lot of interest around the course.

When the plane eventually landed it was Koot Potgieter who beat off the other three consisting of Tienie de Wet, Deville Dreyer and Justine Grobler, winning comfortably by one shot.

The last four player’s final was the culmination of a year’s tournament which started way back in January this year.

The start of next year’s Air Namibia’s Race to Cape Town will be advised but should be about the 18th of January. Watch this space.

This coming Friday the SPCA fund raiser takes place. There are a few slots open so please contact Morne to enter a team.

Saturday the CADILU day takes place. The list is on the board.

On the 13/14th of December the Walvis Bay leg of the Sages takes place. The list for the SAGES is on the notice board.

On Saturday 21st we will have our Christmas event. All players are requested to bring a gift to the value of 150.00. This will be the prizes for the day.

Planning for the Bank Windhoek Gold Estate Festival is well underway. The list on the board. This event competition will be played on 27th and 28th.

Only $100 of the members draw was won last week, and the winner asked not to be names, so no names.

As was published over the past few weeks there is ongoing additional work being done on the course. Please have some understanding, as there are a few rough patches which will all be gone in a week or so’s time.

The committee have been on about repairing divots and pitch marks. Please support them and repair the marks even if they are not yours. Also please remember to rake the bunkers, it is just good course etiquette.

The old Jolly Joker is still at large. No it is not Joker-rot. The Joker is indeed in the pack, just looking for an owner.

John Sardinha had the chance last week but drew the queen of spades and in so doing left N$ 37 000 standing over to this week Friday.

Just a reminder that there will be a few changes to the start of the next pool once this one has been won and these will be communicated so watch this space. Remember without a ticket you can’t win the lolly.

The planning for our Xmas cup is well underway and for further info contact Darryl Swart or Jason Barnard, or Carlos de Gouveia.
