The MASCOR St Cathryn’s club championship was played over two days, Saturday 10 April 2021 and Sunday 11 April 2021. The Farmers Agri-care monthly mug was played as round one of the championships, on 10 April 2021. The Club Championships were played in A, B, C and Ladies Divisions. Members travelled from around KZN and Gauteng (Reeksting brothers, Piet and Leonie Coetzee and Brent Barkhuizen ) – to be part of the tournament playing under the new sponsorship from Mascor’s banner. Some of the “big guns” were absent: Tienie Muller due to illness, Andre Liddemore work commitments, ET Ntuli away on training and Josh Meyer and Andrew Nieuwoudt both recovering from back problems.
Overall the competition was good and played in a very good spirit, but Darren Reeksting made his intentions known when he was leading at the halfway stage.

On Sunday morning, the second day of the championship, the greens were mowed for a fourth time this past week, and made for slick and fast greens. The pin positions of the US Masters did not influence the local pin positions, except maybe on holes 5 and 14.
