It was a very busy week at Margate Country Club and so too for its players last week.

Eight members from the ladies section competed in the McKenzie Cup played over two days at Matatiele Golf Club at the weekend.

They had an amazing time and would like to thank the club and their club captain, Alta de Bryn, for hosting a truly wonderful event.

A special mention and congratulations also goes to Sandi Johnston and Maureen Ogilvie (pictured), who won the 2019 Margate Country Club ladies medal in their bronze and silver divisions respectively.

Team Margate had a blast at the McKenzie Cup.

The Tuesday ladies competition was played in a threeball alliance with two scores to count. Taking first place with 70 points, on a count out, were Sandi Johnston, Hilary Hendry and Maureen Ogilvie. Losing the count out, also on 70 points and coming second, were Friedl Kotzbauer, Lexley Lewis and Evelyn Burls.

The Club 100 was played in an individual point scoring format and won by Joe Espach with 39 points. Second place was shared between Frik van Zyl and Ivan Curlewis, with 37 points each.

Wednesday saw the Wobblers play a threeball alliance with two scores to count. Wining on a count out was the pairing of Piet Pretorius, Dave Morrison and Otto Mutschler with 76 points.
