A Senior Frog and Frog team represented St Cathryn’s at the annual KZNGU Inter Club tournament held at Selborne, Umdoni and Umkomaas golf courses over the weekend of 25 to 27 October.
The senior team played Umdoni on Friday and scored 102 points with Tienie Muller the leading scorer for them with 37 points. The Frog team played an almost unplayable Umkomaas course as the pin positions were very difficult to get to and scored 87 points. Marius Muller was their top scorer with a fantastic 35 points. The Inter Club captain, Dieter Meyer, had a very difficult day with only 25 points which insured that he would have to wear the green NOT THE WINNER shirt for the lowest round of the day.
The senior team moved onto Selborne on Saturday and scored 84 points with Tienie Muller once again leading the way with 35 points. The club captain, Fanie van Wyk, had a very poor outing only scoring 22 points which allowed Dieter Meyer to hand over the green shirt with much enthusiasm. The Frog team had a good day at Umdoni with 98 points scored with Dieter Meyer overturning his poor form on Friday by scoring 34 points, the highest for the Frog team on Saturday.
Although the Frog team lost the internal competition with the Senior team by one point they went through to the Sunday Alliance competition played at Umdoni. They were placed 6th overall in the Frog division after being in 19th position after Friday’s round.
Marius Muller (38 points), Lawrence Savage (34 points) and Dieter Meyer (33 points) played very well to score a total of 105 points. They tied in first place with Athlone Golf Club but unfortunately lost out to them in a count out. St Cathryn’s are probably the smallest club represented at this tournament with a limited number of players available for selection so this result is certainly one to be proud of.
Tienie Muller won the trophy for the most points scored over the Friday and Saturday round with a total of 72 points with Marius Muller coming in second with 68 points.
Thank you to Plennegy who sponsor our team on an annual basis and make it possible for St Cathryn’s Golf Estate to compete in this fantastic tournament. We all really appreciate your generosity.
