A quick reminder that this Saturday the 13th is Round 1 of the BMW Golf Cup (normal comp fee, Ind Stab). The 3 overall winners (Men’s A Div: hc 0-12, Men’s B Div: hc 13-28 and Ladies Division: hc 0-28) will head to Round 2. This will be held at Durban Country Club on 11 September 2019, from where the top three in each division will progress to the BMW Golf Cup International Final. Round 3 is part of a 3 day, 2 night fully paid for getaway to a 5-star destination in Southern Africa to compete in the National Final. With the eventual winners having the opportunity to compete in the Golf Cup International World Finals which have previously been hosted in countries like Mexico, Dubai, Australia, South Africa and Thailand. This is an unbelievably exciting opportunity for South African amateur golfers and a historic first for the tournament.

The 2019 Southbroom Amateur Classic
The 2019 Southbroom Amateur Classic was once again a wonderful golf tournament. We extend our grateful thanks out to Barry Elliot and Hibiscus Brokers for their fabulous umbrella sponsorship of the Classic. Barry and his guests put up a very good performance with Red Shuttleworh & Chris Naidoo finishing in 8th place tied on the same score in 9th place as Richard Mills & Michael Anthony.
There were 144 men enjoying a great week of golf in a good combination of really easy or really tough conditions. In the end a very good win for the Fox brothers, Greg & Andrew who made 43 points on the last day in the worst conditions. They finished on 171 points, three ahead of past champions Robbie & Melchior Botha who are always competitive, especially in windy conditions coming from Mossel Bay. Last year’s champions Ig Erasmus & Rudie Venter ended up 3rd with 164 points closely followed by a number of teams, so it really did all go down to the wire.
The Classic was enjoyed by all and very festive in the evenings with great music by our local band ‘The Legends’ on Monday evening and on the final two nights, ace entertainer Winston Smile got everyone rocking. The whole week had a wonderful vibe as can be seen in the incoming mail feedback below. Thanks also to the on-course sponsors who spoilt the players on the tees. And to all our incredible Pro Shop suppliers for sponsoring the Top 15 Overall Prizes.

Thank you for a wonderful and extremely organised Classic. I have played in a number of golf events over the years and have yet to play in one as enjoyable as this. I can only imagine what kind of dedication and planning it takes. Very well done and I hope to be back next year. Thank you.
