Royal Dur­ban is host­ing the na­tional golf club cham­pi­onships in May, and we are look­ing for more clubs to send teams to boost this in­au­gu­ral event. En­tries close on March 31.

Each club is al­lowed a team of 8 play­ers (4 bet­ter­ball pairs), and we can ac­com­mo­date 64 teams. The 72-hole tour­na­ment, from May 2 to 5, is be­ing hosted by our­selves, Dur­ban CC, Mount Edge­combe and Kloof CC, with the par­tic­i­pants play­ing one round on each course. The top 16 teams will qual­ify for the fi­nals at Royal Dur­ban on Satur­day, May 7.

We have R250 000 in prize money which will be shared among the top five clubs. The win­ning club (not the in­di­vid­ual play­ers) will re­ceive R80 000.

This is an op­por­tu­nity for clubs to sup­port their mem­bers and pay for their en­trance fees into the Royal Dur­ban tour­na­ment, which is R 16000 a team.

Some of the clubs which have en­tered a team are hold­ing qual­i­fy­ing rounds, to cre­ate in­ter­est at their own clubs. To en­ter a team, please con­tact me at, or phone 083 325 1821. Mike Jor­dan, Club Man­ager, Royal Dur­ban GC
