Walvis Bay Golf Club news

06 October 2021 | Sports

The greenkeepers revenge was just that: Revenge!

Thanks go to Schalk, Jason and Nardo for the course layout on the day, and also for the sponsorship of the event.

It was different and difficult and this could be seen in the scores for the medal format. It would appear that those who are used to playing in the rough and bunkers were better at it on the day.
Wynand Moller won the day on 75 net ahead Poena Johnson on 83 followed by Koot Potgieter in third place on 86.

Tienie de Wet won the count out from Potch Alchin for fourth place on 87.

The course has been cored and top dressed over the past two weeks, and as a result is a bit slow but this will improve in time.

It always takes a great deal of effort in doing the maintenance and all players are requested to be patient and keep the comments positive – that is unless you would like to assist!

New face

The first competition after the coring was sponsored by Wayne Hart and Sergio Fig. Perhaps the wind kept players away, with only a small field of 26 turning out.

There was a new face in the winner’s circle: Emile Vilbert won with 40 points while Potch Alchin [again] with 36 points was second, winning the count out from Tiennie de Wet.

Johnny Borges won the count out from Estelle Bothma for fourthth and fifth places.

The lucky draws were won by Nardo Sardinha and Chris Bothma.

There was no jackpot winner and there were three 2 clubs, Andre Burger, Wayne Hart and Wynand Moller. Thanks to Wayne and Sergio for their continued support.


Subs are now overdue and as such, if you have not paid in full you will not be in the prizes. If you have any queries, contact either Issie or Anton. The responsibility is up to you to ensure that your subs are paid.

This past weekend had three players who are in default with their subs, and one forfeited his prize as a result. This is a club rule.

Just a reminder, that if you are not able to attend a prize giving, you will need to apologise before you tee off and it needs to be recorded in the registration book. Failing to do will result in you forfeiting your prize.

The prize giving will be held at 18:30 sharp.

Last Sunday the club Sages had their event and a big field of 23 turned out to support new chairman Johnny Borges’ first event.

Des Benson won the day with 42 points ahead of Jens Paschke ending second on 40 points. Justine Grobler, Chris Bothma and Pieter Heunis were tied on 35 points.
All in all, 17 prizes were handed out and the lucky draw was won by Dawn Dippenaar.

The member draw last week was not won as neither Jaans Stander, Bennie Lombard nor Clifford de Witt were at the club at 18:00.

Also not won on Friday was the JOKER. It stood at N$136 800 and Attie van der Westhuizen was present to draw his card, which was the 9 of diamonds.
The club is now over the half way mark, with only 26 cards left in the pack so now it becomes sweaty palms stuff.

Next week the pot will be N$139 931, so be sure to have a ticket to win the pool. The old saying goes….you gotta be in it to win it.

Just a reminder to all members to support chef Nico in the kitchen
