Rossmund news

The Nashua Desert Classic had a record field with 148 players taking advantage of this ever popular 2 day competition – staggered tee-offs were put in place to cater for the big field and worked out perfectly. Local knowledge came to the fore with local guys Bertie Saunderson and Aldon Strauss coming out on top followed by Pete Fox and Gert Olivier and in third place Likuis Nande and Thomas Shitaleni. Well done to all the players for some fantastic golf and to the sponsor Anje Nel and her team from Nashua.
The E E Ferger Invitational, also known as the German Open, attracted a good field as always and a great day was had by all – a little bird told me that the winner came all the way from Gauteng – however full details not available when going to press!!!
Most of our Senior Golfers took part in the SOS Seniors Open followed briskly by the Xmas SAGES in Walvis Bay culminating in a great Mixed Pairs Competition organized by NALGU and sponsored by Indo Atlantic – the competition being the first of it’s kind at Rossmund attracted a field of 40 players. A great day was had by all.
Saturday 14 January was our first official competition for 2017 sponsored as always by D. F. Malherbe & Co.
