GNGU Mid Am & Snr Closed

The 2019 Mid Amateur and Senior Closed was held at Zwartkop Country Club.
This 36 hole tournament, played over 2 days is always closely contested with the best of the local mid amateur and senior golfers ending.  The seniors proved to be coming out tops with Derik Piek and Neil Goosen both going into round 2 on -2, a 1 shot lead over leading mid amateur Menno Malherbe.  However an excellent final round of -5 and overall score of -2 for the tournament gave Wingate Park CC’s Nicholas Geerts the title of 2019 GNGU Mid Amateur Closed Champion.  Neil Goosen took his home ground advantage, finishing with 3 birdies in a row to take the Senior Closed trophy, finishing on level Par for the tournament.

We would like to thank all players who participated, as well as Zwartkop CC management, staff and members.

2019 GNGU Mid Am Open

The 2019 GNGU Mid Amateur Open was held on 3 March at Waterkloof Golf Club.

The course was in excellent condition and after the first 18 holes, Craig Collins, Dino De Abreu and Neil Rathmann had all shot 69 (-3) and with a pack of 7 only 3 or less off the pace, it was always going to be an exciting second round.  Ryan Dreyer from Killarney Country Club managed a fantastic 68 in the second round, leaving him on 139 (-5) for the tournament and winning the trophy by 3 shots ahead of Waterkloof Golf Club’s Jacques van Tonder.
