Bishops - Winners A League

A constant swirling breeze, and a sudden mid round downpour, did not deter the 72 participants in the 2022 Western Province Schools Golf League Finals held at KD Mowbray Golf Club.

The WP Schools Golf League consists of a NORTH and a SOUTH League – both leagues are further subdivided into an A, B and C league. The WP Schools Golf League season extends from April through to August with the winners of the various leagues gathering, at the culmination of the league season, to contest the schools golf league finals. The season consists of around 160 fixtures played on a Monday afternoon at various golf courses around the Cape Peninsula.

This year’s A League final was contested between Bishops and Durbanville High School. Wins by Durbanville’s number 1 Liam Adonis and Henru Walters (at number 4) were cancelled out with convincing wins by Adam Buckham (5&4), James Boustead (7&6), Michael Newton (4&2) and Thomas Jacobs (3&2). In the end it was a 4-2 triumph for Bishops.

Last year saw Bishops come agonizingly close to winning, but after one of the closest finals in recent years, TGSE won on a games count. Three members of this year’s Bishops side played in last year’s epic final.

For 3rd place, Milnerton High School shaded the 2021 winners, TGSE, in a closely contested match winning 3.5 to 2.5. Wins by Luca Wolvaardt, Tristan Boise and Jordan Pillay saw Milnerton home.
