The 2021 WP Mid-Amateur Championships took place at Westlake Golf Club on Thursday the 26th August and Friday, 27th August 2021.
Round 1 took place on Thursday afternoon. With grey skies and a icy wind greeting all players at registration. We had to make the call at 12h30 to suspend play due to inclement weather. The players made it back to the clubhouse just in time to have lunch and prepare for the next day.
We kicked off Friday morning with a nice and early start hoping to get ahead of the weather this time. There were still some drizzles but nothing to serious which saw the completion of this round.
Philip Taberer (Erinvale Golf Club) was first off and finished his round on a 72. With this good score Philip had to wait about 2 hours for the last players to finish their round. This was not in vein.
Shaun Le Roux also finished with a gross of 72 which meant a playoff for the gents. Philip won the first playoff hole to be crowned the 2021 WP Mid-Amateur Champion.
A big word of thanks to the players for the patience and understanding in the reduction of the tournament to only one round. To those players who travelled from a far, it is always a pleasure having you at our tournaments and thank you for the support.
To the Westlake Team, Chef Deon and his staff, Raymond and his staff as well as the Westlake Members for allowing us to use their beautiful course for our Championships a big thank you.
