Our annual Golden Girls tournament concluded today. It was once more very generously sponsored by Jenni Gault International Jewellery Design. This was a very special occassion as we commemorated the life of Alma Truss, a year after she passed away. We arranged to have our Silver Tray named after Alma Truss. Her family were invited to attend the prize giving and present the trophy for the first time. Unfortunately her daughter, Barbara, couldn't make it but her grand daughter Hayley and her husband Paul were there. Antoinette gave a very moving speech on how much Alma had contributed to ladies golf in Gauteng and South Africa. Hayley was invited to present the tray to our Golden Girl, Valda Ford of Ruimsig CC on 169 (87,82). Sheryl Matthews was the runner up on 175 (87,88)

In the B Division the winner was Lalla Alexander of Bryanston CC on 68 points (31,37) she won on a count out from Anneke Luyt also of Bryanston CC on 68 points (39,29). Nine of the twenty prize winners were from Bryanston CC. The full prizelist is attached to download.

Thanks to all the girls who competed, the tournament would not be what it is without you.

The Bryanston Country Club

The final tournament of the Ladies Golf Gauteng year was held today at The Bryanston Country Club. The Teams of Two is a great betterball event and is always well supported. We had 76 entries today, 38 teams of which 12 were in the Silver Division playing betterball strokeplay and 26 were in the Bronze Division playing betterball stableford. Players don't have to play with a member from their own club but may play with a friend from another club but they must both be in the same division.

The defending Champions, Niki Christie and Jacqui Akers, won the Silver Division again this year on a brilliant level par 73, Ethel Ruthenberg and Valda Ford were runners up on 74, so a very close fight for the title.

The Bronze Division was won by Grizelda Ruiters and Yvonne Hamburger on 48 points, winning the count out from Trish Anderson and Carol Holmes and Leanne Fieldgate and Karen Fieldgate who finished second and third respectively.

The latest Order of Merit is attached.

The LGG Executive have decided to change the format this year. We will be doing ours like that of WGSA, a rolling format. All of last years scores will be taken into account until the tournament is played this year, those scores will then replace last years. If you played a tournament last year and not this year, last years scores will be deleted. We will still be using stroke average as this shows current form.

Karen Wales and Linda Place winners - Golden Girls at Parkview

Result Date: 
Wed 12th Feb 2014

Well done to Karen Wales of Parkview/Houghton on winning the Tee and Sandwedges Golden Golfing Girls which concluded today at Parkview on 159 gross, Jo Morley Jepson of Wanderers was runner up on 167.

Linda Place of Kyalami Country Club won the Bronze Division on a brilliant score of 80 stableford points. Annaline Nel of Leeuwkop was runner up on 69 points. . We had a wonderful tournament with very generous sponsors in Tee and Sandwedges. The tournament ran very smoothly, we had the most amazing weather albeit a bit hot but at least there was no rain. The ladies all had a wonderful time, some really great golf was played. There were unfortunately three disqualifications during the tournament. One player played off a higher handicap than she was entitled to and another two players were disqualified for arriving at the golf course twenty minutes after their scheduled tee off time. Lessons to be learned from these are to always check your handicap before teeing off and make sure you have your tee off time. The onus is on the player to make sure they have all this info correct. Well done to all the prize winners and thanks to everyone who took part.

Full prizelist is attached

A huge thank you to Parkview for hosting us and making sure that everything went so well.
