JACKPOT JOKER DRAW
Humewood hosted its inaugural Joker Draw this past Friday. The first evening started with a bang, all attendees eager to get their hands on the R5000 jackpot.
Sue Barton had the honour of being the first person to flip a card, but unfortunately for her, it wasn’t the joker. She was still an “Ace” for trying and we now look forward to the second round with an estimated R10 000 waiting for the winner.
OVERS VERSUS UNDERS
20th & 21st of SEPTEMBER 2019!
The two teams were greeted with strong South Westerly winds on Friday afternoon. The Overs defending their title against an eager Unders team.
The event was played over two rounds of match play, the first round format was a Better Ball Stableford and the second round an Individual Stableford.
Day one went to the more experienced Overs side. Their 8-4 lead meant that the Unders had a huge task ahead of them if they wanted to rip the trophy away. Day two pitted players against each other who, were it not for this competition, would probably never have played together. This is what makes this event so special and we know from experience that the golfers create long lasting relationships due to the camaraderie built up during the competition.
The final result - a 22-14 win to the Overs. A convincing win with the singles finishing 14-10.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t get a team pic as all the players scrambled off to watch the BOKKE play the Ref, I mean New Zealand.
