The Rossmund monthly “feeshing” competition sponsored by Pescanova and Novanam was held on Saturday (22 June).  This golf competition count among the most popular and it is always a pleasure when sponsors join for a round of golf and afterwards for the prize giving and socialising.

The weather also played along fine for a most enjoyable competition and a few good scores were posted.

As always Cashbox and Johan van Wyk were on hand to ring the bell and assist with the prize giving – this time the grandchildren stood by with a helping hand.
Wednesday 19 June: the Engen – Swakopmund Service Station Golf Day 30 golfers took to the course despite the hectic east wind conditions.

Well done to the qualifiers and thanks to all the golfers who supported the initiative.
The Individual scores from all the days’ participants were thrown in the hat for the Wednesday competition.

This coming weekend in the 2019 NALGU Namibian Open Championship and the Namibian Junior Championships at Rossmund. The club will also host a small competition sponsored by Destination Swakopmund for those of you who cannot get through the weekend without your “shot “of golf.
Remember: Golf is a non-violent game played violently from within. Real golfers go to work to relax. Real golfers don’t cry when they line up their fourth putt.
