How do you know that you are the best in the business? You win all the matches you play, in order to win the league in your province and then… beat everybody at the Northern Provinces finals.

Akasia Country Club represented the Gauteng North Golf Union, whilst Randpark Golf Club, Ebotse Links, Walker Park Golf Club and Potchefstroom Country Club each represented the other unions that make up the Northern Provinces. Limpopo did not field a team this year.

This event has a huge heritage and the trophy has been contested since shortly after the Second World War. The format is 8 member teams playing match play from scratch. Due to the number of teams the event is usually scheduled over 72 holes contested in two days. Because of the withdrawal of Limpopo the host union Ekurhuleni scheduled the matches over 54 holes. Thirty six holes contested on Saturday and 18 holes on Sunday morning. Continue reading

Orton crowned Sanlam SA Women’s Amateur champion

LumienTrophy_Sanlam_GNGUBENONI (13 July 2016) – It felt as if she had come full circle when Lumien Orton won the Sanlam South African Women’s Amateur Championship at the Ebotse Links on Wednesday.

But Orton had to claw her way back from being 4Down through eight holes, and she did so with some magnificent putting on the back nine. It was two strong birdies at holes 14 and 15 that helped her complete her comeback to All Square.

She then went 1up with a par on 16 as Gorlei missed a short putt to halve. They halved 17 and Orton birdied 18 to take the title. Continue reading
