At 8.30am on Sunday 21 May the annual match between the Members and Caddies & Staff took place at Knysna Golf Club. The format was better-ball matchplay with 20 players on each side making a total of 10 matches.
The Caddies & Staff started well winning both their opening matches but the members pulled it back to all-square by winning the next two. The next two matches went one each way to make it 3 – 3. The members then went one up but were brought back to level losing their next match. 4 – 4
The members then won their next match to go 5 – 4 up. So it was down to the last match which was won by the Caddies & Staff to square the overall match.
Everyone agreed that the event was played in the true spirit of the game and was enjoyed by all those taking part and will now be played at this time each year.
The Captains, Mike and Adam wish to thank the Club for the full use of the facilities and for providing a halfway lunch for the Caddies & Staff.
