Golf news from Rossmund

Monthly Medal kindly sponsored by Novanam/Pescanova was held on Saturday 28 September.

Weather conditions were a little on the cool side and overcast but actually ideal for golf as one can be seen from the excellent score posted by our Chairman – well played Marco. Sponsors representative Jose Rodriguez also joined us for the day and officiated at prize giving. Well played by all and we trust you enjoyed your day of real golf. Greens are slowly getting back to normal – not so many hops and jumps J There were 2-clubs coming from Kevin Wentzel No.7; Marco Swarts No.12 and Chris Heunis No.3. Our Over-all Medal Winner was Marco Swarts 69nett; “A “Division: Helmut Ndjendja 73nett; “B “Division: Sebulon Tsuseb 69nett; “C “ Division: Christopher Magson 77nett; Ladies: Justine Shikulo 78nett; Juniors: Bradley Gawanab 87nett.
We were delighted to welcome our new sponsor – Specialised Building Products Traders (SBPT) with a Betterball Challenge on Saturday, 21 September. – it was great to see a full field of 72 players making the most of the shotgun start – slightly delayed due to the excitement towards the end of the RWC match between the Springboks and New Zealand.
All in all a great day of golf was had by all including Dirk and Pascal who managed to keep all the players motivated with their mobile shot cart. Michael Ludeke and Stuart Salt were the winners – not sure of their score – forty something – donating their prizes back for auction – Steven Johns eventually going home with the laurels for a interesting amount of N$2400 – this will be put into the kitty for the 40 year celebrations fundraiser. Thanks once again to Dirk Coetzee and SBPT for a great day of golf and confirming that you will do it again next year.
We had some Absolutely Perfect Water up for grabs sponsored by Neil & Berdene MacLeod on Wednesday 25 September – great to see Neil out on the course again. It would appear that there are still a few of our regulars missing in action for one reason or another – but we all had a great day although scores over the back nine were on the whole a bit yucky J Our 18 hole winner was Athol McLean 37pts followed closely by Gert Breedt on 35pts; 9 hole winner was Rina Knight with 18pts whilst Peter Bass lost/won a count out for the Most Golf.
