GNGU Womens Open 2021

Irene Country Club proved to be a true test of the players abilities at the 2021 GNGU Womens Open.  The A & B Division played 54 Holes over 22 & 23 August, and after an opening round of 69 (-1), Kiera Floyd made it impossible to catch her.  She won the event on 216 (Par), 5 shots ahead of nearest rival Gabrielle Venter.
Megan Marais from Magaliespark CC won the B Division and Zane Fourie from Silver Lakes won the C Division.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, E-ZGo for assisting with this event and to Cursive Lifestyle Eatery for the sponsored coffee station, as well as their hospitality.  Appreciation also goes to Irene Country Club, for their all their assistance and hospitality before and during the tournament, as well as their members for giving up the course.

2021 Mid Am & Senior Closed






The 2021 GNGU Mid Am and Senior Closed was held at Blue Valley Country Club.
Round 1 showed some great golf, with Gustav Verster and Jacques van Tonder shooting 68 (-4) to lead the mid amateur division and Adrian Kriel and Martin Kraft shooting 71 (-1) to take the lead in the Senior Division.

In round 2 there was some drama with play-off’s determining both divisions. Jacques van Tonder beat Chris van der Merwe in the play-off to claim the Mid Am title, both players finished on 139, 5 under par. Martin Kraft beat Dirk Kotze to claim the Senior title, both players finished on 147, 3 over par.
