Hollow tyning commenced yesterday at the KGC. The course will be open from today onwards. Tomorrow there will be an House of Liquor sponsored IPS.

On Thursday the KWV Powerplay Niner is on offer. On Friday the Shoes Tower Charity Golf Day is scheduled.

On Saturday it is a Club competition. Sunday 24th, Christmas eve, special rates will apply.

Closed for Christmas

The course will be closed on December 25, but will reopen on Boxing Day.

Saturday’s fourball stableford alliance, two scores to count, had 90 points the top score. The winners were Bradley and Dudley Slingers along with Mervyn Haai. The runners-up were Susan Ferreira and Joanie and Jolene Herselman on 87 points.

The final prize, on 84 points, went to Willie Delport, Johnny Cloete, André Williams and Steven Turner.

Meyer Meintjies posted 24 points for a more than comfortable win in the Friday Sun Flamingo Niner. Susan Alexander (21), Zayhied Sulliman (20), Gavin Oliver (19) and Mali Manana (18) were the remaining prizewinners.

The KWV Powerplay Niner on Thursday again offered a double powerplay opportunity. Jannie Loots used both hands throughout the nine. He snatched a six-pointer on the second followed by an eight-pointer on the fourth.

He also grabbed a four-pointer and a number of three-pointers to finally sign for a worldwide record 30 points, six clear of the field. (Maybe a powerplay niner should be considered for the next Commonwealth Games).

Flexx Rantoa, who recorded a six-pointer, was the runner-up on 24 points. An eight-pointer on the final hole gave Kevin Wakeford 23 points and third spot.

A further eight-pointer along with 6 six-pointers were also recorded by the players outside of the prizes.

Pieter Roux du Toit and Stef Burger returned a winning 43 betterball points in Wednesday’s competition.

Quinten Williams and Dale Hohne were the runners-up on 42 points.
