Month: December 2015
Womens Golf South Africa would like to thank each and every player, Union President, parent, manager, coach and all the volunteers that have helped at our tournaments, not to mention our wonderful sponsors the Nomads and Sanlam, for their support this past season.
Golf RSA, the governing body for amateur golf in South Africa, has announced a National Squad of 34 players for 2016. The squad will be made up of some of the country’s most talented young amateurs and will feature players from the top of the open amateur and junior amateur rankings, plus a good mix of promising youngsters who have the potential to become great players.
While the battle for supremacy in the A-Division has gone the way of Southern Cape, the promotion battle in the B-Section at the South African U-19 Inter-Provincial is heading for an epic battle after Mpumalanga narrowed the gap on log leaders Free State in Thursday’s fourth round at Worcester Golf Club.
Southern Cape strengthened their title bid with a dominant performance in the fourth round Foursomes, while Mpumalanga will hope to convert their early advantage into victories to chase down B-Section log leaders Free State on day four of the South African U-19 Inter-Provincial at Worcester Golf Club.
Free State steamed to a solid six point lead in the promotion battle with another convincing performance, while Mpumalanga and Eastern Province both secured victories to stay in the hunt at the South African U-19 Inter-Provincial at Worcester Golf Club on Wednesday.
Southern Cape and Central Gauteng got off to a flying start in the third round Foursomes, while Eastern Province and Mpumalanga are back in the B-Section battle for promotion after a solid morning at the South African U-19 Inter-Provincial Championship in Worcester on Wednesday.
South Africa’s number two ranked Ivanna Samu won the KZN Junior Championship title with a gutsy performance in very tough weather conditions and a week after she defended her title, her face still lights up with delight at finishing the season on such a high note.
Congratulations to Gauteng North Golf Union's Teaghan Gauche, Jason Viljoen and Neal Herman from Central Gauteng Golf Union and Ruan Pretorius from Free State Golf Union on securing your playing privileges for the 2016 Sunshine Tour. Well done lads!!
