So just like that, the 28th Men’s Amateur Classic has come and gone. Great weather met the golfers with four glorious days showcasing Southbroom and the South Coast as the most pleasant place to spend a winter! Once again it was a hotly contested affair, with many teams in the running for most of the tournament. Taking control of the final two days and winning were Ig Erasmus & Rudie Venter and coming second were Rob Meydell and Peter (Pierre) van der Walle. Well Done Gentlemen!

Thanks Fabulous time and definitely back next year! Hopefully with a better golf swing …
A total of 12 South Africans have made it to the Open Championship at Carnoustie this year. It is fantastic to see us so well represented. It is always fun to watch ‘links golf’ as the players plot their way around the course, it seems as though staying out of the bunkers this week is an absolute must!
