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 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.
All results and prize list is attached for today's tournament which has just concluded at Wanderers Golf Club
The Gauteng 36 holes strokeplay championships are under way at Wanderers Golf Club. Judging by the comments today, the Wanderers greens left most of the girls scratching their heads. They found the greens extremely quick and tricky. Zethu Myeki appeared not to have battled with the greens when she carded a 73 on the par 72 layout. The course was lengthened by 272m for the A Division only, total length being 5653m. Eleonora Galletti, Jacqui Akers and Lejan Lewthwaite are all tied second on 75. There were 27 players in the A Division.
The draw has been seeded for tomorrow and is available on this website.
