Iliska is the Eastern Cape Match Play Champion

Cradock’s Iliska Verwey picked up the Eastern Cape Match Play Championship with a 4/3 victory over Vryburg’s Nicole Becker in the 18-hole final played at Port Elizabeth Golf Club yesterday afternoon. Earlier in the day Iliska had beaten PEGS’s Nicole Fourie 6/4 while Nicole won a closely fought match against Tanica van As at the 19th.

After the previous day’s heat, the final was played in cooler but windy conditions which suited Eastern Cape’s Iliska who was three under when the match finished at the15th.

The B Division was won by a junior – 16-year old Chanré Coenraad from St Francis Bay – in her first ever win, overcoming veteran Louise Pitout 3/2.

Gillian McAinsh is the Bronze Champion after her 2/1 win over Denise Davis.
