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.
