Chill doesn’t dampen spirits at SA Inter-Provincial
A stiff breeze run danced in the trees dotted around the course at Bloemfontein Golf Club this morning, but not even the chilly weather could dampen the spirits as the challenge for the South African Inter-Provincial, sponsored by Tempest, teed off.
The 51st edition of the South African Golf Association’s premier team competition was launched last night as thirteen teams presented their flags, chomping at the bit to get play underway.
This morning the defending champions will begin to launch their bid for a 17th SA IPT title when they take on minnows Gauteng North in the first A-Section morning foursomes match
Southern Cape, celebrating their second successive year in the A-Section, face 2010 champions KwaZulu-Natal in today’s second match while Central Gauteng, chasing their first victory since 2006, go up against 2007 champions Boland in the final A-division match.
In the B-Section, host province Free State and Northern Cape will start their campaign for promotion against Limpopo and Ekurhuleni, North West meet Eastern Province and Border in their opening match while Mpumalanga will have a bye in the first round.
The format for both sections will be morning foursomes and afternoon singles.
