The members of Blue Valley Golf and Country Club have donated golfing goods to the SAGDB. Donations were collected from members and amounted to a number of different goods collected and distributed to the kids under the auspices of the SAGDB.
Various golf bags, a number of clubs, shoes, hats, clothing, holdalls (including a brand new Nike bag), golf carts and a number of other goodies were donated. Everything collected has been distributed and put to good use.
Thank you Blue Valley members for your kind gesture.

The team in alphabetical order:

Mellette Hendrikse has won the KZN Senior Open. The Kwazulu Natal swing included two tournaments scheduled between the 4th and 8th of September.
The first was the KZN Senior Spring Classic hosted by the spectacular Durban Country Club. Mellette was relegated to second place by the eventual winner Morgan Phillips, a Maritzburg Golf Club resident, in what was loosely termed “testing” conditions.
The second tournament, the KZN Senior Open was hosted by Cotswold Downs Golf Club. Mellette was able to exact a swift revenge by beating Morgan Phillips, Kevin Curren and Rahme Ramon by two strokes.
He has improved his season’s record to 9 tournaments, 7 top 10 finishes and 4 wins. His ranking points with the SAGA is 81.72 with his nearest competitor on 66.50.
The ladies Gauteng North Inter-Provincial team will attempt to defend their title once again. Last year’s IPT was held in Port Elizabeth between 24 and 27 September. This year’s edition will be contested at the Royal Cape Golf Club between the 5th and 10th of October. Last year both the A and the B team managed to end up in the “A” flight. Our A team won the tournament with the B team ending 4th. We wish both the teams good luck and kind bounces.
