Located in a picturesque valley overlooking False Bay and surrounded by mountains, Clovelly Country Club is considered one of Cape Town’s hidden gems. This year’s Clovelly Open was graced with a star-studded field of 80 players. Over the course of the day, the leaderboard changed hands several times as a result of intense competition.

A confident Matt Cooper (Clovelly) retained his winning momentum from Metropolitan and took advantage of home turf to triumph by two shots over Jungwi Lee (Royal Cape) and Travis Procter (Durbanville).

The first round was a slow start for Cooper, as he posted a score of 71 (-1). Hole 19 – 27 were a completely different story, with Cooper shooting the low 9-hole round of 32 (-4). A clean score was marred by two bogeys on holes 10 and 13. He finished the final five holes one under par to post the lowest round of the day, a 69 (-3).

A youngster with few words and one of the hardest-working golfers, Jungwi Lee (Royal Cape), are beginning to show signs of promise. He finished the tournament with a 142 (-2) score with six birdies, four bogeys, and 26 pars, and finished runner-up. Procter (Durbanville), a familiar face on the podium, was seeking his second win of the season, but his efforts fell short. He reported that his putter was cold and therefore, he did not take advantage of many opportunities on the greens. With rounds of 71 and 71, he finished with a gross score of 142 (-2).

As one of the most dominant players in the Senior Series, Brian Mampies (Royal Cape) showed the young guns that he remains a force on the course. Mampies, who is widely regarded as a birdie machine, carded eight birdies on the day, but seven bogeys and one double had an adverse effect on his score. The Mid-AM Section title was awarded to him with rounds of 71 and 73, two shots ahead of Shaun le Roux (Westlake).

Six ladies competed for the title in the Women’s Section. The competition appears to be intensifying each week, which is a positive sign of things to come. A new winner emerged with a staggering margin of 8 shots. A first-class performance by Lize-Mari Prinsloo (Bellville) was highlighted by rounds of 76 and 77 (153) to outperform the competition.
