Phillip Grant and Richard Nel 2 357x430

The ever popular Umhlali Country Club was the venue for the KZN Senior Amateur monthly on 2nd October 2019. The course was in good condition for this time of the year and the greens, if a little on the slow side, were a credit to the greens-keeping staff. A fresh north-easterly wind did not seem to have too much affect on the top scorers judging by the results in all divisions.

Playing in the same fourball, there was some tight competiton in the "A" Division between Phillip Grant and Murray Gilson. It all came down to the final two holes where Phillip (pictured above) birdied both 17th and 18th holes to return a score of two over par gross 73, beating Murray by one shot (74 gross). 

The best nett in the "A" Division went to Zugu Dlamini with a gross score of 78 less 8 h'capp = 'nett 70. Runner up was Kevin Curren with gross 77 less 4 h'capp = 73 nett.

Given the windy conditions on the day there were some excellent scores in both the "B" and "C"Divisions. There were five places paid out in the "B"Division with first place going to Rabi Hurriparsad with 40 individual stableford points. Second was Prem Hirailal with 39 points, third was Kenneth Mthiyane with 38 points, fourth was Robin Singh with 36 points and fifth was Bheki Mkhize with 36 points.

Only two places were paid out in the "C "Division with Bridg Rambujan returning an excellent score of 44 individual stableford points. Runner-up was Herran Chellan with 42 stableford points. Well played both of you !

Closest to the pin prizes went to Rob McCann (4th), Juggie Govender (6th), Mike Sekobane (11th) and Murray Gilson (18th).

The next tournament is scheduled for Zimbali CC on Monday 21st October 2019. Entries have been sent out by Gail at KZNGU. New golf shirts with a revised logo will be available at the Zimbali event. 

Many thanks to our sponsors for their continued support.
