The 4th and final in the series of WPGU Primary School events took place at the Old Mutual Golf Club (Mupine) on the 18th October.
The 36 players, representing the 9 schools/teams, played in cold and generally unpleasant weather conditions. As usual the course was in immaculate condition. The South African Golf Development Board (SAGDB) River Club chapter dominated again, on this occasion winning by a clear 15 shots.
Each participating team consisted of 4 players, 3 scores to count. The course was set up as a mashie with 18 par 3s. Mitch Phigeland (11 years old) and Craig Jacobs (12), from the winning team, had the best individual scores – both recording gross 61s.
