GNGU Inter-Club 2015

DSCN0802The GNGU Inter-Club competition has been contested annually for more than a century. It is a friendly, but fierce competition between clubs in a four-ball alliance format. The GNGU executive use this opportunity not only to network and discuss relevant matters in an informal manner, but also to bring thanks to the people who work for the clubs in the Union. Traditionally invitations were sent to the Club Manager, the Club Captain, the Green-keeper and to the local Professional of each club. Over time however the game of golf and specifically how it is managed at club level has changed. Designations like Golf Director, Operations Manager, Events Manager and many other are now commonplace in the golf industry. The result is that Clubs send the most influential people to attend and mingle in this flagship event.

This year’s edition was hosted by Blue Valley Golf and Country Club and our hosts took full advantage of their home course to win the day on 92 points. Second was the team of Akasia Country Club followed closely by Hillside Golf Club.
