ANDREW GEORGIOU TAMES ‘THE MET’

From its inception in 1895, the Metropolitan golf course has been a central Cape Town jewel.The MET (as it is affectionately known) was commissioned by the City of Cape Town and rebuilt in 2010 by Mark Müller, a local golf course architect.The Met has 18 holes, each with separate tees, along with 14 lush greens and 9 beautiful fairways.This parkland ground features bentgrass greens and Kikuyu fairways.

The ideal weather conditions made it a scoring paradise for the players. As the predicated cold front passed through late afternoon, the last 9 holes proved to be more challenging.

The Metropolitan Open featured a limited field of 40 players.

Open division

Matthew Cooper led the field after Round 1 with 2 shots after scoring a great 65 (-5). There was still work to do in the second round as Sean Howell, Andrew Georgiou and Karl Ochse were close behind. Both Sean and Andrew finished round 1 with 67 (-3) and Karl with 68 (-2).

Andrew Georgiou, a fellow Metropolitan member, ended Round 2 with a fantastic score of 62 (-8), which ultimately resulted in him winning the MET Open with a score of 129 (-11).
