CAPE TOWN (25 April 2016) – It’s not yet on the level of her love for Deep House music, but 17-year-old Kaleigh Telfer is slowly starting to understand Westlake Golf Club’s course. And if she can hold onto her two-stroke lead in Tuesday’s final round of the Sanlam SA Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship, she may well leave here loving it.
Free Stater Chante van Zyl has had to make do with the forced closure of nine of the 18 holes at her home course and very little in the way of quality greens or even a practice bunker to prepare for this week’s Sanlam SA Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship. But she was still able to share the lead in Sunday’s first round at Westlake Golf Club.
