Golf

22 October 2019 | Sports

Despite expected fierce competition, Gert Olivier emerged as a relative, comfortable overall winner and is the 2019 Club Champion with a great gross score of 141 (72 and 69).

He was followed home by Stanley Gawanab and Kevin Wentzel on 146. Stanley won Runner-up overall gross on the count-out.

The 2019 Ladies Champion is Wilma de Wet who posted a score of 85 over 18 holes with Estelle Bothma taking best net on 73.

Other main prize winners were Andre Burger, Overall net on 141 just edging his good friend, Deville Dreyer who was Runner up Overall Net on 142.

Despite two Rugby World Cup quarter final matches to compete with, an excellent field of 41 players turned out in fabulous weather on suburb greens.

The event was again generously sponsored by Desert Iron & Steel and Dean Kock. He also participated and promised to be back in 2020 for the 10th year!


Divisional Prize winners were:

A-div: Best Net – F Champion, Best Gross – K Wentzel, , R/up Net – J Greeff, R-up Gross – J Barnard
B-div: Best Net – E. van Wyk, Best Gross – W Breytenbach, R/up Net – P. v Niekerk, R/up Gross – H Neethling
C-div: Best Net – P. Sham, Best Gross – D. v Antwerpen, R/up net – J Polster, R/up Gross – A vd Westhuizen

On Sunday a great field of 40 players were back on the course for a quick 5-hole scramble competition with some wives, partners etc. joining in the fun.

This was followed by a good game of rugby between the Bokke and Japan and great potjies prepared by Wikus Jooste and a few fellow cooks. Definitely a great initiative to be repeated soon.

This coming Sunday we will skip the golf but have enough wood and fires for a bring and braai to watch the Boks smash Wales.

Saturday is the second last PISCES & Fox Designs Monthly Medal with the final scheduled for 9 November.

Members are reminded that there will be a braai on Sunday for those watching rugby at the club.
