GEORGE GOLF NEWS - Glenwood House matriculant Damian Osner came out trumps for the third year in a row at the Simola Golf and Country Estate's annual club championships last weekend, while Knysna local, Sunet Venter, secured the ladies' crown.
The championships were played with green speeds of up to 12 on the Stimpmeter and wind speeds of up to 40km/h. The course proved a stern test indeed.
Venter claimed a convincing win in the ladies' medal section while Ramona Griffin earned herself first place in the ladies' Stableford section.
Osner attained a hat-trick of triumphs in the A Division, a remarkable achievement considering he is only in matric this year and balancing a promising golfing career with matric finals.
Cliff Daniel was the winner in the Men's B Division while former Simola golf director, Alistair Beaumont, was a popular winner in the C Division.
Simola employee and greenkeeper, Du Toit Maree, made his mark by bagging himself a hole in one on the 17th hole. – Simola Hotel Country Club & Spa.
