We had the pleasure of hosting the 2019 GNGU Teams of Two tournament yesterday at The Els Club at Copperleaf.
After making the decision to change this tournament from ladies only, to a mixed tournament, we were extremely pleased with an over subscribed field of men, lady and junior golfers, with handicap index’s ranging from +2.5 to 24.8. This 36 hole event is 18 holes foursomes and 18 holes BB Medal Nett and is a fun team event! It is is a goal of the GNGU Executive to host tournaments for all affiliated golfers and without the support of our Clubs and players we are unable to do this.
We would like to thank Copperleaf for their fantastic hospitality as well as their members for giving up their beautiful course for the day. Congratulations to all the winners, especially Allan Taylor and Raymond Graaff who took their home course advantage in order to take the trophy for 2019. CLICK HERE for the full results.
