WP Golf Annual Awards Dinner


The who’s who of Western Province Golf gathered last week at the WP Golf Annual Awards dinner to celebrate the achievements of the province’s top golfers and teams. The evening showcased and celebrated their successes through out the year. The dinner was held at Kelvin Grove, Newlands.

It was also an opportunity to thank the loyal sponsors of Western Province Golf; The Foschini Group (TFG), Western Province Nomads, Taylormade Adidas, Kansai Plascon, Cape Town Sports Council, The Pro Shop, Pick n Pay, David Frost Wine and Swagg Clothing.

The players and teams have been rewarded for their passion and commitment to the game and were acknowledged by their peers for their achievements.

Amongst the winners, Bellville’s Kaylah Williams was the well-deserved winner of both the Women’s Player of the Year and the Junior Player of the year. Kaylah Williams also received her South African Colours.

Durbanville’s Jordan Rothman, the SA Sanlam Amatuer Champion, walked away the the Emerging Player of the Year award, with Steenberg’s Bobbi Brown, Breakthrough Player of the year.

The Royal Cape ladies were clear winners in the Scratch League – the first time in 27 years; and Durbanville Ladies did the double when they won both the Silver & Bronze Handicap league titles.

Scratch League winner was Rondebosch’s Gilly Tebbutt; Judy Coyles and Sonja Sleep shared the Silver Handicap Index league, and the best Bronze pairing was Marianne Keissig and Glenda Muller.

The Order of Merit winners included, Juniors – Sam Simspon; Mid-Amateurs – Elton James, and Brian Mampies – the Seniors.

Team of the Year was awarded to the Premier IPT team as they regained their spot in the A Section after being relegated last year. It was probably the youngest ever team to represent Western Province at the Premier Inter-Provincial.

Deon Germishuys, the SA Amateur Champion, Ayden Senger, Sam Simpson, Gerlou Roux and were all awarded their South African colours.

Disabled golfer of the Year was awarded to Clovelly’s Iglin Grobelaar, and the Hearing Golfer of the Year to Darren Hannekom.
