Tsumeb beat Walvis Bay in interclub golf competition

Despite sending up the biggest contingent in many years, consisting of 18 teams (36 players) the Walvis Bay Golf Club was unable to defeat Tsumeb on their home course last Saturday.

After a long day, the final score was Tsumeb 11.5 and Walvis Bay 6.5. Winning their match plays for Walvis Bay were Herman Smidt & Wayne Hart, Gunther Heitmann and Duane Sanders, André Burger & Willie Venter, Des Benson & Warren Theron and Willie Els and Johnny G while three other teams managed a half, which indicates that the contest was indeed a tight one and Walvis did not surrender the trophy without a fight.
In the Betterball Stableford competition, the best performing teams from Walvis were Jans Stander and Anton van Rensburg on 43 points, followed by Bertus Venter and Cailean van der Fecht on 42 points and Willie Venter and André Burger on 41.
As always, we were spoiled endlessly by our Tsumeb hosts who deserve a big thank you. We look forward to winning the trophy back when they visit us in 2020.
Locally, a field of 16 players took part in a Club-sponsored Individual Stableford competition. Jaco Greeff played an excellent round of golf with a 72 gross and came first with 40 points. Johan van Zyl was second with 39 points, Tienie de Wet third with 38 points and Koot Potgieter was fourth after a count-out with Frans Grobler on 37 points. There were no 2-clubs and the winner of the Lucky Draw was Wynand Moller.
