Novanam and Swakopmund Plaza Hotel at Rossmund

The First Monthly Medal and SAGES for 2019 were played at Ross-mund over the weekend.

With a slight breeze blowing in from the north the First Round of the 2019 Monthly Medal sponsored by Novanam was played on Saturday 19 January and it was a great start to the new season with a field of 39 players enjoying the opportunity to play some real golf.
There were some good scores posted with Marco Swarts and Bertie Saunderson producing 2-clubs on Number 7.
Overall Winner:
Anton Bonifatius 70 nett; “A” Div: Fanie Terblanche 78 nett; “B” Div: Thomas Shitaleni 71 nett; “C “Div: Des Frankfort 75 nett (c/o); Ladies: Helga Engling 75 nett; Jnr: Wayne Profitt 77 nett.
The first SAGES for 2019 sponsored by the Swakopmund Plaza Hotel were played on Sunday 20 January. There were 24 early birds including the hotel’s General Manager – Johan Kok, who took to the fairways to enjoy a great round of golf.
There were no 2-clubs and only Tienie van Rensburg managed to keep his ball on the green to win nearest to the pin on Number 7 while Number 12 went a begging. Dougie Smith took the honours with 35pts followed by Tony Boesch on 34 pts leaving with a 3-way tie for third place on 33pts between Athol McLean, Tienie van Rensburg and Chris Bothma.
The youngsters were back in full force as 11 playing together and looked a bit chaotic at times, but they all appeared to have had a great day.
A big word of thanks goes to the sponsors and especially to Roberta for being there to officiate at the prize-giving and Johan for a great day of golf – as always everyone was a winner.
Bob Hope once said “If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf”.
