Captain, Nicky Heuer gives us this update:
On Thursday, 28th February the Bronze Championship & Shield events were held at Umhlali CC. Representing the Bronze Division were: Patty Thompson, Dale Ford, Olga Serton, Karen Taylor, Stephanie Carter, Tania Schoeman, Stephne Ashworth and Angelique Cameron.
It was a tough and competitive field and, on the whole our ladies played well, and did us proud. Karen Taylor, in particular, had a fantastic round, carding a Nett 69 on the day: this resulted in her winning the Overall Nett Prize.
In the Bronze Challenge Shield Team event our ladies (Karen Taylor, Olga Serton, Dale Ford & Nicki Bowles) were the Nett Runners Up, coming second to Umhlali CC.
In the Silver Challenge Shield Team event Michelle Dold, Noelene Morrison, Janine Parkins and Nicky Heuer were the Nett Runners up, only just losing out to the winners, Durban Country Club.
On Sunday, 10th March our Silver Division was again represented in a 36 hole Strokeplay event – Well done to Ruth Rigney, Noelene Morrison and Janine Parkins.
Following this was the Top 16 Matchplay knockout, which was held on the 11th & 12th March.
Congratulations to Janine Parkins, Olga Serton, Karen Taylor and Stephanie Carter for progressing into the Top 16 Matchplay event. Karen, Olga and Stephanie progressed to the Quarter Finals and, at the end of the day, Stephanie Carter progressed to the Semi Finals played on Tuesday, 11th March.
This was a very tough Tournament, a real test of character and stamina (as you can imagine by the amount of rounds these ladies have subjected themselves to!)
We are very proud of you and thank you for flying the Simbithi CC flag high.
