Sport - Date: 23 May 2024


The SPCA hosted their ninth annual golf day on Saturday, 18 May, which was once again well supported with a full field of players.

“We are so incredibly humbled and thankful to each person who contributed in any way to help make our golf day such a huge success and one to look forward to on the yearly calendar. Without the amazing support of our community, it would not have been possible,” said Alicia Thomas of the local SPCA.

The competition was decided in a four-ball format, with the team consisting of Johan Breytenbach, Mauritz Senekal, Charles Schlesinger and Beukes Haasbroek clinching victory with a score of 114 points on a count-out. In second place, also with 114 points, was the Musina four-ball team consisting of Eddie Liebert, Lindie Liebert, Johan Botha and Martin Claasen. In third place, again with 114 points on a count-out, was the local four-ball team of Pee-Jay Greyling, Christiaan Mocke, Hanco Kok and Dion Svoboda.
