THE SA final of the 21st World Amateur Golfers Championship showcased an impressive display of amateur golf when the winners of the regional qualifying rounds battled it out for Team SA honours and a trip to the World Final­ in Turkey from 28 November to 5 December.

In a step to boost golf tourism on the KZN South Coast, the SA Final was supported by Tourism KZN and hosted at Selborne Hotel, Spa & Golf Estate, who opened its doors early to host the SA finals following recent major renovations under the new owners, First Resorts Management.

The first round teed off to wet conditions, following much-needed rainfall the night before.

However, this did little to dampen the high spirits of the golfers who ended the day on a tightly contested finish in three out of the five handicap groups.

Competition was fierce going into the second round, with a nail-biting final 18 holes to be played. Prevailing winds brought about an unexpected swing in events as the leaders fell back in the field and were overtaken by a strong contingent of golfers from the Western Cape.

As the twice-defending champions, Team SA will be tasked with bringing the trophy home when they put their skills to the test against more than 40 countries for the team title and individual handicap group trophies. - Sport24.
