Southbroom Golf Club played host to the KwaZulu-Natal Amateur Championships last week, which saw Silver Lakes ace Albert Venter secure the strokeplay silverware.

Venter took the title by two strokes over Rustenburg’s Theunis Bezuidenhout, Kloof’s Malcolm Mitchell and Benoni Lakes’ Ryan van Velzen on six-under-par 138 following rounds of 68 and 70.

Coming off an undefeated performance at the recent Fellowship Cup against India, GolfRSA National Squad player Venter went wire-to-wire to claim the top spot in the 32-strong field for the matchplay stage.

Venter offset a bogey start and a further drop at the third with six birdies for an opening four-under-par 68. In the final round, the Gauteng North player dipped seven-under-par with birdies at two, four and six, but suffered a double bogey at the par-three eighth. A birdie at the ninth and nine straight pars down the back stretch saw him sign for a two-under 70.

Local favourite Gavin Sole had to settle for fifth place on two-under-par 142 after carding rounds of 70 and 72.

Mitchell, who made his national debut against India at Leopard Creek, won the matchplay title, toppling Thabiso Magwaza 7/6, Warick Purchase 7/6 and Dawid Opperman 2/1 before beating Van Velzen 8/7 in the final.

Phillip Grant defeated Grant Lister-James 4/3 to claim the senior matchplay spoils, while Lynton Beckett beat Antony Brown 6/5 to snap up the senior plate.
