2015 Winners – Bob Thomas & Patrick Cronin Congratulations!

The 25th Southbroom Amateur Classic was a fantastic event! Bob Thomas & Pat Cronin dominated the tournament after starting with 51 points on Day 1. There were a number of other teams trying to catch them all week. Defending Champs Robbie & Melchi Botha, came back with 49 points on Day 3 Thursday to chase the leaders , but that wasn’t enough to catch up as Bob and Pat went on to win with a resounding total of 189 points, 9 points ahead of the Team Botha.

The course was initially looking very dry and the 40+mls of rain that fell on Monday night made the Green Keeper and surrounding farmers smile, but it made the conditions for golfing rather cool, damp and windy for the duration of play, with the sky only clearing partially on Friday afternoon.

Nevertheless there was a great Tournament spirit at the Club and our thanks go to all the 160 Players and especially to our main sponsors Hibiscus Insurance, Linvar, Storage Direct, Insurisk & Jeep for participating!

The Purtell family donated a special new trophy for the tournament in honour of Hugh Purtell, who founded the Tournament in 1991.

It is the largest of the ‘Classic Trilogy’ held annually at Southboom Golf Club, together with the popular Ladies Classic in May and the Mixed Classic in October.

If not before, we look forward to seeing you all again in The 2016 Amateur Classic.
