Marsh Namibia Tees it up Rossmund

For more than a decade Marsh Namibia, one of the leading insurance brokers in Namibia, has been sponsoring the Rossmund Club Championships.

Due to the challenging time of Covid-19, the competition was postponed this year and only took place over the past week. It was inevitable that the wind played a role this time around. The South Wester stamped its mark on day one of the competition with sandy winds of around 40kmph. This caused considerable havoc with the first-round scores especially on hole number eight.
In the A Division, Chris Durant managed to post a gross score of 76 three shots ahead of nearest rival Hans Naobeb, while well-known names such as Kevin Wentzel and Stephanus Bonifacius could only manage an 80 and 82 gross, respectively.
Day one B Division honours went to Helmut Ndjendja carding an 84 gross with Miguel Tordesillas close on his heels with an 86; in the C Division Athol McLean and Sebulon Tsuseb were neck and neck on 94 gross. Justin Naobeb lead the Juniors Division and Mariena Ludwig had her nose in front by the Ladies Division.
Day two brought much improved weather conditions although some of the golfers were still a bit disorientated and did not manage to improve their scores – there were 2-clubs coming from Stephanus Bonifacius and Dean Kock.
The leader however managed to keep his cool and played some consistent golf to shoot a second round 76 gross with Kevin Wentzel and Stephanus Bonifacius coming into the mix with a 77 & 78 gross respectively. David Peake set the cat amongst the pigeons in the B Division carding an 86 gross but failed to topple the leader Helmut Ndjendja who came into the clubhouse with an 80 gross. The C Division leader Athol Mclean shot an 87 gross to give him the division title and in the Ladies Division – Justine Shikulo had the best round of the day with a 107 gross.
Marlene Bougaard from Marsh Namibia was on hand from the sponsor to assist at the prize giving.
