On the greens
06 March 2020 | Sports
All players were forced to dovetail with themselves between the first and second nines. The best score counted on holes 1 and 10, 2 and 11 and so on.
Indeed a very interesting format. Thanks to Andre Burger – not only for the sponsorship but for providing with this interesting format.
Jaans Stander who won the day in a count out on 24 points against Shane Westerdale.
Captain Benito was third, winning the count out on 23 points against Herman Smidt, Jaco de Wet, Ben Louw and Wouter van Wijk, all on 23 points.
The jackpot was not won and there were four 2 clubs with Jason Barnard, Shane Westerdale, Grant Mather and Herman Smidt in the mix.
The leap year competition was a straight forward individual stableford event with a new sponsor, Braai Master, being the host for the day.
Thanks to Wickus Jooste for this new sponsorship and being at the prize giving to hand out the prizes. Braai Master is the team that supplies the meat for the club’s weekly raffles.
Thirty six players turned out, and congratulations to Andre Burger who won the lucky draw.
The best round went to Jonas Niilenge, with a well-played 40 points.
Second place on a count out went to Koot Potgieter while Bertie Coetzee Jnr was third, also on 39 points. The last of the 39 pointers was Gunter Heitmann.
Kevin Wentzel won the fifth prize on 38 points. Gunter also won the jackpot for the day.
There were four 2 clubs with Jonas, Bertie Koot and Kevin de Reuck.
The members’ draw of $500 was won by Chander de Gouveia – probably the 4th time he has won inside two years, and it’s starting to look like “membersrot”!
The members draw takes place as normal on Friday even though the Lions day is on.
If you are on the course and your number is drawn, you will still win the lolly.
Although the members’ draw was won, the Jolly Joker continued to duck and dive and hide from view.
A record amount of entries were received and so the Joker ended at a staggering N$115 000. It was a first time player Rojas, who had his number drawn and thus stands the chance to win the pool.
But alas, the 7 of hearts was his drawn card and to an ever increasing number of deci-bells the chorus of “and the crowd said hard luck” echoed through the club.
With the Lions day on Friday, the Joker draw takes place as normal, so get your tickets before you tee off in the day night event.
This weekend is the Fox Designs monthly medal, so let’s see a full field on the course. On Sunday it is the SAGES, with tee off at 08:00 and a 9-hole tee off at 10:30.
Tee off for the Lions Club Night Day event is at 17:00 and it will be a shotgun start.
The calendar for the next few weeks is as follows:
14 March: ESU Pairs
21 March: Best Drive
28 March: KWV/CIC
