Seniors' Society News

Seniors’ Society Club Championships

Played over three consecutive Mondays in February, the third and final round was completed by the field of 62 Seniors coping with warm and humid conditions.

The A Division, playing Gross Medal, was comfortably won for the third successive year by Deon Minnaar with consistent rounds of 78, 76 and 79. The battle for second place was sneaked by Greg Thorn who finished just one shot ahead of Anton du Toit thanks to a final round of 78.

TJ Lee, also with an excellent final round of 78, won the Nett Trophy by three strokes ahead of Deon.

The B and C Divisions played Stableford and Ian Dorrington became a first time winner of the B Division with a total of 115 points over the three rounds, five points clear of his nearest challenger Fanus Ackermann. JJ Wilson, who had two superb opening rounds, retained the C Division trophy with 121 points. Meyer Rautenbach was a well deserved second.

A special prize was given to Graham Grobler who manfully persevered against all the odds over three rounds for his determination both to compete and to finish. Perhaps some of those who didn’t enter this year may be encouraged in the future by his example.

The Society is indebted to Heather Robertson and Nancy Grabham who generously give of their time to record the scores, to the staff in the Pro Shop for their assistance and the Club for its supplementary contribution to the prize fund.

Senior's League

Playing against Bellville on their own course was always going to prove a tough ask and so it proved as the Seniors’ League team went down 3-2 to suffer only their second defeat in the past 12 months.

Suat Palanduz and TJ Lee had to come from behind to win their match one up and continue their undefeated run, but it was the next two pairings which proved pivotal. Coming to the last all square, the door was opened by Pieter van Wyk’s and Winston Heunis’s opponents as they both charged their first putts long on the devilish 18th green. Pieter had two putts to win the match but left his first a little short and then agonisingly underhit his three footer. In the match that followed, Mike Rolfe had a longer putt to win, but he too was just short as he and Allan Kearsey also halved. So instead of being 3-0 up and rendering the final two matches academic, Durbanville led only 2-1 at that stage. Unfortunately neither the Neil Rix/Bert Vos or Gerald Muller/Gavin van der Merwe combos were firing on all cylinders, both going down to comprehensive defeats.

The next match is on Monday 18 March at Kuilsriver against the table topping, strong Strand team.

The Club Championship has come and gone. It was a fantastic, yet windy, four days of golf. Well done to all members who tested themselves over the four days and a special mention to all players who finished in the prizes. The overall winners in the Men’s Division was Christiaan Steenkamp who fired a fantastic 69 on the last day of competition to come from behind and win. Kelly Erasmus was the overall club champion in the ladies section. Well done to them both.

The Mid-Amateur Team has had a reasonably good start to the league season with a win over the Metropolitan and narrow loss to Strand. Tough games against strong Milnerton and Westlake teams remain. The team currently lies 3rd on the log.

Social golf in New Zealand

Thank you for the warm welcome that you extended to me during my visit. I really enjoyed my games at Durbanville, which I thought was in a really good condition.

It was also nice to personally meet people such as Sean and Hayley, whom I just know from e-mails with each other. The other staff in the office and the pro-shop were fantastic – they were so friendly and helpful so my golfing experience thus went off very smoothly. Please give them my “thanks.”

Congratulations on leaving the Club in a good condition when you retire from the Captaincy in a few months’ time.

Keep well, and regards to everybody.
