Walvis Bay Golf Club news

16 November 2019 | Sports

The field was not big for the PISCS/FOX Designs monthly medal competition.

A few guys were on tour, some played the Rossmund Sages for the week, and a others were in Windhoek for the Windhoek Open.

The golf was probably the best golf played at the club for a few months. This was reflected in the scores

Mario Polster won the best gross on the day with a good 74 while Wynand Moller won the best net with a very good 68 and a new handicap.

The ‘A’ division best net was won by David Peale on 72 while the ‘B’ division was won by Emile Vilbert on 68.

Gunter Heitmann won the ‘C’ division on 70. We have now also incorporated a stableford competition on the same day as the medal and this was won by Javino Polster on 38 points with Kurt Brits second on 35 points, winning the count out.

No two clubs were recorded on the day and the jackpot was also not won. This time there Anton van Rensburg and Jason Barnard made good use of their green fees for the day. Not too much more to be said on these two great golfers who just happened to have a bad round.

Talking about bad rounds. Did you hear about the guy who played the Rossmund Sages and scored 4 hundreds in the four rounds? If not, don’t ask if so leave it at that.

While all this was happening Grant Mather was shooting the lights out to win the Windhoek Open on a great minus 7 shots. Well done Grant, that was indeed great golf.

This coming weekend will be the TOYOTA Day, which is hidden partner and on 22nd is the Meersig NGK fund raiser. Please support this fund raiser if you can.

The members draw was not won as Pieter Heunis [500], Anton Welgemoed [300] and Peet Poggenpoel [100] were not present.

There are still a few members who have not paid subs. You know the rules so please do so soonest or speak to Carlos. Just don’t not pay.

Wouter van Wijk has circulated the Ait Namibia to race to Cape Town leader board. Thanks to Air Namibia for the sponsorship.

The course has had additional work done on it over the past week so 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 here and repair the marks even if they are not yours. Also remember to rake the bunkers, it is just good course etiquette.

The Jolly Joker continues to evade capture, two weeks ago David Peake had a shot and last week Wayne Hart had a go, but alas neither of them were successful, and the jackpot will open this week on 28 800, not to be sneezed at.

The planning for our Xmas cup is well underway. For further info contact Darryl Swart or Jason Barnard, or even Carlos de Gouveia for that matter. More info on this event next time.
