Greytown Country Club news

GREYTOWN Golf Club’s premier event of the golfing calendar, the Classic, was played on Saturday 24 October. Despite the Springbok-All Black World Cup semi-final being played on the same day, 64 players participated in good golfing conditions. The prize giving and supper had to wait until after the All Blacks snuck a win against the valiant Boks.

Winners of the Greytown Classic Floating Trophy for 2015 was longstanding convenor of the Classic organising committee, Jimmy Crowe and his partner Andrew Smythe, on 49 points. Clearly Jimmy still had the advantage of local knowledge, having played our course for many years. Second was Vijay Roopai and Owen Naidoo on 48 points oco and third was Tubby and Gareth Larkan on 48 points oco.

The general consensus among the players was that the greens were in fantastic shape, despite the drought, thanks to hard work of greenkeeper Wally Kohne.

We would like to thank all our sponsors, players and the golf committee of GCC who did a lot of work, as well as Jabu for supper afterwards.

Please watch the adverts in the Greytown Gazette over the next week or so for our “ad of gratitude” to our sponsors.

A reminder to local golfers that the KZN Midlands Closed Tournament will take place for the first time in many years on our course. Thirty six holes will be played on Sunday 15 November in A, B and C divisions. The entry list is up on the board at the club. The field is limited to 48 players from all Midlands-affiliated clubs.
