THE 2015 edi­tion of the an­nual Ko­mani Clas­sic takes place this week­end when a big field of lo­cal and vis­it­ing golfers is ex­pected for a great week­end of golf.

The com­pe­ti­tion, in which teams of four golfers play in a bet­ter­ball and in­di­vid­ual for­mat over two days, al­ways pro­duces drama and ex­cite­ment in go­ing down to the fi­nal holes on Sun­day af­ter­noon. The field is start­ing to fill up but there is plenty of space for a few more teams.

The an­nual Queen’s Col­lege Old Boys’ As­so­ci­a­tion (QCOBA) golf day took place on Satur­day and an ex­cel­lent field of 78 golfers took part. The ma­jor spon­sors were the Kel­ston Mo­tor Group whose gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship en­sured that ev­ery golfer had plenty to eat and drink. Johnny de Vil­liers saved his best per­for­mance for Satur­day as he added the QC Old Boys na­tional ti­tle to his im­pres­sive CV as he shot a two over par 75 to win the day. His Sta­ble­ford score of 45 points was just enough to push Bryan “Very Scarce” Kretschmer on 44 points into sec­ond spot. The third placed golfer was new mem­ber Jo­han van der Mescht on 43 points. The com­pe­ti­tion for the prizes was fre­netic as Gay Wormald, Colin Hart­ley and Garry God­ley filled the next few leader­board po­si­tions. The golf day co-or­di­na­tor, Garry “Solid 41” God­ley, en­sured that an ar­ray of prizes was on of­fer as Keith Wood, Mx­olisi Vanda, Danie Nel and Derek “Pale Blue” Helm fin­ished in the top 10 places. Tony McDougall and Li­onel “Sharky” Cronje also played good golf in scor­ing 38 Sta­ble­ford points. The in­ter- branch com­pe­ti­tion saw a home town de­ci­sion as the Cath­cart and Barkly East branches lost by a nar­row mar­gin to the Queen­stown team. The field prizes were taken by Johnny “Boxed it” de Vil­liers 5th, Tony “Made the putt” McDougall 11th and Richard “One putt” Arm­strong 16th. The clos­est for two on the 18th green was hit by Dru Nass.

The eight Coast to Kat golf tourists re­turned from their tour to four cour­ses with a new cham­pion. An­drew “AJ” Smith had to use all his guile to sneak a two point vic­tory over Marc “Sin­gle Fig­ure” Bradley with Gary Gold­schmidt in third. The cook­boys did their du­ties with aplomb but shall re­main incog­nito for now. SOMILA Jada from Tambo Vil­lage Boxing Club was named the best boxer for his bout against Lu­vuyo Mbobo from Eku­phum­leni in the Chris Hani Dis­trict May­oral Cup last week. The bout was also named the best of the tour­ney.

The team that ended first was Sada with five gold medals, four sil­ver and two bronze, fol­lowed by Eku­phum­leni with five gold, three sil­ver and two bronze. Ix­ha­langa was third with five gold medals, one sil­ver and two bronze.

Chris Hani Am­a­teur Boxing Or­gan­i­sa­tion (CHABO) sec­re­tary Mab­huti Mapeyi said nine teams par­tic­i­pated – the boxing clubs of Sada, Eku­phum­leni, Tambo Vil­lage, Queen­stown Boys, Gcina, Ilinge, Cala, Indwe and Eyasekasi.

The tour­ney served as prepa­ra­tion for an in­ter-dis­trict tour­na­ment at the Thobi Kula In­door Sports Cen­tre on Novem­ber 21 to be at­tended by pugilists from the Nel­son Man­dela Metro, Buf­falo City Metro, OR Tambo and Ca­cadu.

Box­ers will at­tend the Pre­mier Games in Port El­iz­a­beth from Novem­ber 26 to 30 with the South African Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion (Salga) games in Alice on De­cem­ber 3.
