Today, Les Rule on behalf of Ladies Golf Gauteng, handed over Subz Pads packs to teenage girls in Munsieville, Krugersdorp. Les explained what the product was and explained how to use it. The girls were all delighted to be receiving such a wonderful gift that would change their lives. Beauty was very well organised and had written down the girls names and sizes so the handing over was made easier.
Our annual fun day was held today at Randpark, Bushwillow Course. A great day was had by the ±120 ladies who took part. The League trophies, certificates and prizes were presented to the winning teams and certificates to the runner up teams in each division.
The format for the competition was 4 ball alliance two scores to count. Congratulations to the winners of the LGG Christmas Alliance:-
Kajal Mistry from Bryanston put an exclamation point on a very successful 2016 season by moving into the top spot in Womens Golf South Africa’s Senior Rankings on Sunday.
The 16-year-old Randpark golfer celebrated a hat-trick of wins this season with a two shot margin in the Mpumalanga Open and Closed Championship at Middelburg Country Club.
This is hopefully the first and only draft of our Christmas Alliance timesheet! If anybody still wants to play we may be able to accommodate 1 more four ball. The cost is R350.00 per person which includes your green fees, competition fee and lunch with dessert.

It is with great sadness that we post the following message from Parkview Golf Club: "Our beloved Jeannie Mills passed away at Parkview Golf Club on Friday 7th October 2016. She was always such a strong support to our ladies section. Her smile, gentle presence and sense of humor will be sorely missed by all of us." Our sincere condolences to all her family and friends in this very sad time.

The defending champions posted formidable 8 – 1 conquests against Border and Ekurhuleni in the first two rounds that effectively guaranteed them victory, but the team still hoped to finish the week at Umhlali Country Club with an unbeaten run.
