Metropolitan Golf Club boasts sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean framed by Signal Hill and Lion’s Head as a backdrop.

Cold weather and slow play did not deter players from partaking in the Metropolitan Open 2022.

Matthew Cooper (Clovelly), who is ranked third on the PAT Tour, won for a second time this season with a final score of 137 (67 and 70). He carded 29 pars, 5 birdies and only two bogeys. There is no doubt that his performance demonstrates why he has been selected to represent WP Golf at the 2022 SA Premier Inter-provisional Tournament.

By placing runner-up in his first tournament after a successful trip to the United Kingdom, Jack Buchanan (Milnerton) demonstrated why he currently holds the number one position on the PAT Tour. With scores of 68 and 70, he completed the tournament with 138, one shot short of a play-off spot.

The young Jurie Mostert (Bellville), age 21, proved why he is a force to be reckoned with and a name to remember after his low round of 66 in Round 2. In round 1, a dissatisfactory 74 impeded his chances of winning his first PAT Tournament. Mostert finished third with a score of 140 (74 and 66).

Philip Taberer (Erinvale), winner of the Strand Open earlier in the year, displayed a fine performance, accumulating 9 birdies (25%). Taberer’s chances of winning a second time were derailed by 3 double bogeys and 3 bogeys. His score of 140 (68 and 72) gave him Mid-Amateur Open bragging rights.

Women’s podium was dominated by new faces. The women’s section was won by Ashley Huysamen (Durbanville) by two strokes over Lize-Mari Prinsloo (Bellville). The victory marks Huysamen’s first victory of the season with rounds of 77 and 73. With rounds of 75 and 77, Prinsloo finished as runner-up.
