Teams do battle in the 2018 Komani Classic
The biggest tournament of 2018 – the Queens Casino & Hotel Komani Classic – took place at the weekend.
A fantastic field of 28 teams of four played betterball Stableford on the Saturday and individual Stableford on Sunday. It was a real test of patience with the temperatures reaching the mid 30 degrees on both days, but the trusty team of Douggie Rheeder and Gallie Rossouw made sure that nobody became dehydrated.
Thanks must go to the Queens Casino & Hotel for their generous sponsorship and to John Rademann who gave up his time to hand over the prizes to the golfers on Sunday and to the businesses that sponsored a tee or a green. A new addition this year was to have a games evening on the Saturday to create a bit of camaraderie among the golfers.
Gratitude is extended to the members of the golf committee who gave up their time to make sure the event run smoothly.
Results were: 1st – Eagle Hunters (Tegan Barraud, Sam Breetzke, Ana Taggart and Marelise Bekker) – 245 points;
2nd – Sultans of swing (Garry Brown, Kenny Brown, Johnny de Villiers and Martin Hammill) – 235 points; 3rd – Mfuraa Projects ( Mxolisi Vanda, Rix Quwe, Vusumzi Njoli and Elijah Dayi) – 231 points;
4th – Grap Span (Richard Miles, Grant Miles, Andrew Breetzke and Pieter Steyn) 228 points; 5th – Raisin Raiders (Derek Helm, Marc Bradley, Mark Schonken and Dane Nel) 224 points; 6th – King Nondalo (Daniel Holland, Vusunzi Nyingwa, Monde Nongalo and Fellow Ngantweni) 222 points.
