The Mozart Day, originally scheduled for the Saturday before lockdown started in March, finally materialised at Southbroom Golf Club last week…and it was well worth the wait.
The Mozart chocolates had been promptly put into the safe, cool “Thomas Storage” for a few months and brought out and played for on Thursday.
40 masked ladies dressed in red and white just loved the day and also sang happy birthday to sponsor Irene Schanda with co-sponsor Margaret Stoelinger watching via cell phone video call from Austria.
The betterball stableford competition was won by Lee Mutch, who is playing out of her socks at the moment, and Sharon Turnbull Jackson on 49 points.
Runners-up Lorraine Cook and Lan Yeadon were five points back, Candida Amm and Jean Corfe counted out Louise Leal and Solange Fox for third on 42 and Lynne Blackstock and Eileen Neilson won a count out to complete the top five on 41.
The Heritage Classic on Friday was a full day. Geoff Skelton and Olliver Ransome enjoyed scoring 50 resounding points but opted for third place as they couldn’t travel.
So it was congratulations to Bob and Allyson Thomas, and Andre Steyn and Craig Treherne, both on 48. They then also qualified for the next round that was played two days later at Durban Country Club.
The Southbroomers travelled up to Durban early Sunday and enjoyed the Regional Finals but sadly didn’t get through to the finals at Sun City.
The club thanks Pat and Joe Parker and their team for bringing the event to Southbroom. The complimentary Stella Artois beer, Pick & Pay biltong and Srixon balls were very well received by all the players.
