Atlantic Beach Under 13s tournament

Tuesday 18th August – Due to the Atlantic Beach Junior Open being oversubscribed, a separate Atlantic Beach Under 13 Junior Open was held on Tuesday, the 18th August.

In contrast to the beautiful windless, sunny day of Sunday, the players were greeted with a cold, windy Cape winter’s day.

In spite of the conditions there was some good scoring. 10year old Minjun Heo (KD Mowbray GC) won the event with a gross 75, closely followed by Henru Walters (Durbanville GC) on 76. In joint 3rd were Alex Utterson (Steenberg) and Ghery Rabie (Robertson) on 77.

Francois Steyn (Durbanville) won the nett with his 81 off an 11 handicap.

The B division saw a tight tussle with Isabella Heber (KD Mowbray GC) winning on 35 points. Ollie Malyon (Clovelly CC) was runner-up on 34 points.

Arman Patel (Steenberg), who celebrated his 11th birthday yesterday, won the C division on Sunday (in the BFMJS Atlantic Beach) with a fabulous 40 points.

The Atlantic Beach Links was a great venue with a course presented in excellent condition.

The next event is on Sunday, the 30th August, the BFMJS Royal Cape.
