Gerry Few served on the Executive Committee of Gauteng North Golf Union for 20 years.  He served as President from 2010 – 2015 and his passion, dedication, knowledge and invaluable support to the Union will be missed.  Being one of only two managers to win the Premier IPT, and in recent times guiding the Mid Amateur to 3 titles in 4 IPTs cannot be overemphasized.
We thank him for all tireless input and contribution over the years, growing the Union from strength to strength.

Weber wins GN Mid Am Open in scorching heat

The 2024 Gauteng North Mid Amateur Open was hosted at Irene Country Club.  The course was in superb condition and proved a true test to the 90 competitors.

After round 1, there were three players tied at the top on -3, however being 3 behind the leaders did not worry Nicolaas Webber who shot a fantastic 67 in the final round to win the title, one ahead of nearest competitor Francois Coetzee.

A huge thank you to Irene Country Club, staff and management for presenting a beautiful course and your hospitality as well as the Committee and members for giving up the course for the day.
