A field of 116 players from across the country played in the popular annual the Southbroom Ladies Amateur Classic recently.

Southbroom Golf Club came alive over the three-day tournament with its renowned combination of golf, camaraderie, stunning fashion, good food and great local entertainment.

After all the previous damp years, the weather played its part this year and the course was in great condition.

The theme this year was Country and Western and it was thoroughly embraced by all, with the Westlake Ladies even driving all the way up from the Cape in their 2017 Mustang, which they arrived in in great style for the party on Sunday evening.

The Southbroom Line Dancers were brilliant, the Fashion Show enjoyed the biggest line-up of ‘top models’ ever and the imported act of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers singing their duet of Islands in the Stream brought the house down.

The wonderful Southbroom Legends Band welcomed everyone to the Cocktail party on Saturday evening with their toe tapping classic country tunes and on Sunday, Winston Smile had everyone up and dancing.

The competition was tightly contested and saw Queenie Steyn and Maritha de Beer (pictured) from Pretoria clinch the trophy by one shot from Southbroom lady captain Michelle Davies and lady president Candida Amm.

The shot of the tournament materialised on the final day when Lynne Blackstock hit a hole-in-one on the 11th.
