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.
