MAAS DEFENDS SILVER SALVER TITLE SUCCESSFULLY AT IRENE COUNTRY CLUB
Christiaan Maas from Pretoria Country Club became only the 4th player to defend the Silver Salver. The other three players were H Baiocchi (1968 & 1969), G Schwartzel (1982 & 1983) and M Murless (1993 & 1994).
The 58th edition of the GNGU Silver Salver was played at Irene Country Club the home of Gauteng North Golf Union from the 8th to the 10th of October 2021. In the first round on Friday we experienced a 45 min lightning delay. This however didn’t stop Jordan Duminy who carded a fantastic opening round of 65, 7 under par.
Jordan consolidated his lead by carding a 2 under par, 70 in round 2. The notable mover however was Christiaan Maas who carded a 6 under par, 66 to move him into tied second place along with Samuel Simpson and Crismar Engelbrecht.
On Sunday however Maas showed his class by carding scores of 66 and 70 to win the Silver Salver by 272 (-16), 7 shots ahead of nearest contender Samuel Simpson.
We would like to thank Irene Country Club’s members, management and staff for affording us the opportunity to host this prestigious event at your world class facility.
