Allardice takes 2022 GNGU Mid Am Trophy

The 2022 GNGU Mid Amateur Open was played at Akasia Golf Club.  The course was in exceptional condition and the scorching hot weather proved a true test for the 36 hole event.  Through 18 Holes, Pieter Swartz from Heron Banks and Paddy Allardice from Irene CC set the pace on -4.  Paddy, however, kept his foot on the pedal and shot -5 in round 2 to win the tournament on -9 shots, 2 ahead of nearest rival Christopher van der Merwe.

A huge thank you to Akasia Golf Club’s Management, staff and Committee for your warm hospitality.  Thank you also to the members for giving up the course for the day – all the players thoroughly enjoyed the course which is in great condition.

Three way playoff to determine 2022 GNGU Open Champion

The 2022 GNGU was filled with excitement, drama, wet weather and unbelievable golf.

After round 1 Christiaan Burke set the pace, with a bogey free 63 (-9) we knew we were in for an exciting tournament.  Waterkloof home boy, Handré Truter, then followed Burke by also shooting a 63 in round 2, and went into the final 2 rounds 1 shot ahead of Burke, but with a tight pack behind him all chasing the trophy.  Handé kept his cool and went into the final round still 1 shot ahead.  But the final round was filled with birdie’s, eagles, bogeys and challenges and Casey Jarvis (69, 66, 68, 66), Kyle de Beer (72, 64, 68, 65) and Christiaan Burke (63, 71, 67, 68) all finished the tournament on 269 (-19) taking them into a three way playoff.  Casey’s consistency and cool proved his strength and he managed to take the trophy on the 2nd playoff hole.

Thank you must be extended to Waterkloof Golf Club’s staff, management and Committee for their hospitality and giving up the course for us to host a fantastic tournament.  The course was in exceptional condition and the Club went out of their way to ensure a successful tournament.
