Margate Country Club would like to say a big thank you to all the men and ladies who represented the club at their 2019 KZN Interclub competitions, as well as congratulations to Elvis Khawula, Douglas Sima and Sbu Ntozakhe, who ended fifth in the B Division after the first two days and qualified for the finals.
The top four qualifying teams decide the overall winner in a matchplay format, played over 36 holes, while the following seven teams play in an alliance format over 18 holes where Khawula, Sima and Ntozakhe ended third.
Back home and earlier in the week, the Tuesday ladies and Club 100 competitions were cancelled due to rain, however the following day the Wobblers were back on the course in full force.
They played a fourball alliance which was won by Ernie Janse, Bob Weanie, Dolf Willemse and Keith Pearson with 99 points. Second place went to Nico van Vuuren, Thys Bothma, Freddie Boshoff and Louis Gouws with 97 points, while Peter Hunter, Dave Morrison, Wimpie Jordaan and Frank Merrill came third with 93 points, on a count out. The Arthur Tomlinson Floater went to Alan Davies, Konnie Konrad, Hanz Beilhartz and Piet Pretorius on 87 points.
The Pro Shop competition was played in an individual point-scoring format and won by an in-form Pierre Malherbe with a solid 39 points, however, he was just warming up for the weekend. Frik van Zyl came second with 37 points. Nearest to the pins on the fourth and 16th went to Chris Redelinghuys and Flip Fourie respectively.
The Saturday club competition was won convincingly with an amazing 42 individual points by Pierre Malherbe, six points ahead of second-placed Ernie Janse with 36 points, on a count out. Third place went to Peter Hunter, also on 36 points and also on a count out. Janse also claimed closest to the pin on the fourth hole, while Brian Jeffery was closest on the 16th.
