AEGIR Marine Walvis Bay Golf Open

The Walvis Bay Golf Club hosted the AEGIR Marine Walvis Bay Open over the past weekend.

It was touch and go if the rain would come and put a literal damper on the event but even the bit of drizzle on Sunday morning did not hamper the players, and the scores showed as much.
After day one the leader board was well congested at the top with Willie Else and Kevin Wentzel tied on 73 with Jaco Greeff one back. There were a few 75’s and 76’s. So it was all up to Sunday mornings round to sort out the winner and eventually experience reigned and the winner was stalwart Kevin Wentzel, winning by two shots on 145 from Willie Els who played consistent golf to end on 147.
The best net was won by Tienie de Wet winning the count out from Uwe Bachmann jnr on 140. The ‘a’ division best gross was also won on a count out by E Kutara from L Nande both on 140. Best net in the ‘a’ division was won by Jaco Greeff on 143 with C Durant as runner up on 150. The ‘b’ division best gross was won by H Ndedja on 157 with D Hambondi runner up on 162. Best net was won by J Katti on 146 with Andre Burger runner up on 148.
Best gross in the ‘c’ division was won by Wynand Breytenbach on 181 with Bertie Coetzee jnr as runner up one shot back. Best net was won by Potch Alchin on 153 and Clive Laurence won the count out on 154 to end runner up.
Well done to the winners and thanks to the full field for playing. On the photo is Kevin Wentzel receiving the trophy from Grant Mather from AEGIR MARINE.
There were good comments received about the condition of the course and greens and after being closed for a few weeks it was indeed a great effort by the greens team and Captain Pieter Fox and Grant Mather. Well done guys a stellar effort on all counts.
