AMA­TEUR BACK AT COUN­TRY CLUB

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene | Freddie Tait Cup -

Dur­ban Coun­try Club will be host­ing the San­lam SA Ama­teur for the first time in 40 years, from Fe­bru­ary 25 to March 2. DCC used to be a reg­u­lar host of the cham­pi­onship, start­ing in 1924, at least once or twice a decade. But the tour­na­ment has moved around KwaZulu-Na­tal since then, three times be­ing played at Royal Dur­ban, and once each atVic­to­ria CC and Mount Edge­combe. The last SA Ama­teur at Coun­try Club was an his­toric oc­ca­sion in 1978. Zim­bab­wean Teddy Web­ber beat Eti­enne Groe­newald in the fi­nal to be­come the only player to win the tro­phy back-to-back.This year will be the 10th SA Ama­teur at DCC, one fewer than the 11 hosted by both Hume­wood GC and East Lon­don GC.
