The Chairmans Cup

The first month of the New Year has passed the halfway mark, whew how time flies while having fun.
The first competition of the year at the Walvis Bay Golf Course, the CHAIRMANS CUP, where the committee take on the members, has also come and gone and please remind the scribe not to suggest the members bring their ‘a’ game again, as this is exactly what they did last week.

It was in vain for the committee as they could not hold on to the CHAIRMAN CUP, although it must be mentioned that three of our committee members were unable to play on the day, Thomas Wolff, Grant Mather and Jaco Greeff, not that we are looking for an excuse I might add.
But alas, it was the Trump appointed members captain Carlos de Gouveia who stood proud and tall and received the CHAIRMANS CUP from Shane Westerdale after a narrow win of 15 plays 13, see the photo1.
For the record this puts the scores level at two wins apiece for the committee and members.
I am sure that Wayne Hart of PENGUIN FISHING, and player in the members team, was happy to see a field of nearly 40 players turn out in somewhat warm conditions to open the new season at the club.
Well done to David Peake who shot a blistering 43 to win the first prize, second was Wynand Breytenbach on 41 points with Tienie de Wet third on 39 points. Pieter Fox took the last prize of the day being forth on 37 points.
The best players of the day, winning the lucky draws, were Altus van der Westhuizen and Danie van Antwerpen.
Two club money was paid out to Altus, Herman Smidt and Jaco de Wett. Boel Grobelaar was the happiest player on the course as he scored a 1 shot win over the chairman.
On photo 2 are the four winners on the day, Tienie de Wet, Wynand Breytenbach, Pieter Fox and David Peake.
The first of the Wednesday competitions sponsored by ARTISAN BAKERYwas played last week, and was won by none other than Uwe Bachmann, the sponsor on 22 points and winning he count out from Deon Grunschloss and Anton Welgemoed, also on 22 points.

Thanks to all the members that contributed to Frieda after her house was burnt down recently, it is much appreciated.
