Club competition

Rudi Bowe

Last weekend a small field of 34 players turned out for a club competition sponsored by SAGES. The format of individual stableford had a twist in that on 2 of the par 3’s and two of the par 5’s [drawn after play] points were doubled.

The winner on the day was Jonas Niilenge who scored a very good 45 plus the bonus of 11. Second went to Tangeni Mupupa (a visitor for the day from Windhoek) with 42 points and 12 bonus points. Paul Sham surprised all and Sundry (even himself I think) carding 40 points with 10 bonus points to end third.
Two clubs were recorded by Jonas and Katti. Katti was not present to collect his winnings. Please remember if you are not present you will not collect the club money. The biggest winner on the day was Thomas Wolff. He scored a whopping 16 points for the full 18 holes, but no birdies on his card for the day and was given Shane’s lucky draw prize.
This is going to be a busy weekend at the club starting with the high school today which is normally a cracker and then ESU PAIRS on Saturday.
The list is up for tomorrow and the format is 6 x 6 x 6, 6 holes one score, 6 holes two scores and 6 holes multiplier.
Also piggy backing on the ESU pairs is the inter-national pairs with the winners going to regional playoff and with those winners going to Portugal.
The calendar for the next few weeks :
29 March High School fund raiser
30 March ESU pairs and Windhoek Lager International pairs
6 April Western Insurance
8-12 April National Sages in Cape Town
12 April Laerskool Golf Fund Raiser
13 April Best Drive and ladies central open at Omeya as well as the Namibian open at Rossmund.
25 May the annual Tsumeb Golf day. This is normally a real good one, and the list is on the board. It is a pair’s event so get yourself a partner and append your names onto the list soonest.
Some of the club members are going to the National Sages in Cape Town.
