With SACS again unable to raise a team, the annual Old Quad Golf Challenge for the second year running became a Triangular Challenge, between Old Boys of Bishops, Rondebosch and Wynberg. The event – the 13th
occasion it has been held - took place in perfect weather on the Rondebosch Golf Club’s course on Friday 29th
September. For the first time, ODs won the competition outright, our two previous successes having been ties for first place with Wynberg. The final scores this year were amazingly close, with ODs on 514 Stableford points, Wynberg on 510 and Rondebosch 509. Best scores for ODs were Rob Cheetham (1966W)
and Hamish Longmore (1975O),
with 48 points, Rob Carlyle (1987O)
and Murray Carlyle (1989O),
with 46 points, followed by Alister Smuts (1990S)
and Jonathan Smuts
(20140), with 45 points.
Our grateful thanks go to Pen Brower and Rondebosch Old Boys Union, for hosting the game, to Wayne Hill and Rondebosch Golf Club, for allowing us the use of their fine course, and to our various generous sponsors, including Sanjay Daya (1994G),
of Spur Steak Ranches and Panarottis, and Nick Pentz (1986S),
of Groote Post Vineyards, who donated the prizes.
