SATURDAY 22 AUGUST 2015 KGC
Three events were run concurrently at the KGC on Saturday. The main competition, the Annual SPCA Golf Fundraiser was an IPS in which the extraordinary value of the prizes was almost matched by the extraordinary winning scores, nine players recording 40 points or more. Ultimately it was Morne Ebersohn who was first his 44 points comfortably clear of the field after a personal best gross 81 off his seventeen handicap. This included a two over par 38 on the inward nine. Not only did he win an office chair, HNA also presented him with a brand new handicap. A count out on 42 points saw Jasper Kroep second and Jaco Janse third. Four prize winners followed on 41 points – Neville Alexander, PJ Gerber, Alistair McKenzie and Sandra Nel – deemed fourth to seventh respectively.
In the Ladies Bogey competition Susan Alexander was first on +2, Susan Ferreira was second on +1 and Noreen Anne Crozier was third on 0.
In the Senior Society outing Gavin Schafer and Wedge Crozier returned a winning 47 betterball points. Attie van Niekerk and Dave Wilson were second on 45 points in a count out from Lennie Allen and Willie Uys.

Losing that draw, in second place, was Mali Manana. The remaining prize winners all returned 21 points – Parks Mashaboa, Bonolo Modise and Peter Salo.

WEDNESDAY 19 AUGUST 2015 DARSHA INSURANCE BROKERS IPS
Harry Welham underlined his current form in posting 41 individual stableford points to win the Darsha Insurance Brokers Monthly Competition on Wednesday.

First reserve was Tenderson Manyetsa and second reserve was Frans Smith.
