Golf Day 2019 The 10th Annual afpop/MEDAL Insurance Open Golf Tournament was held on Wednesday 11th September on the Penina Championship Course. A shotgun start at 8.30 saw 77 players head off into the beautiful sunshine on a well presented Penina course as always.

The Lady and Gentleman Champions for 2019 are Christine O’Reilly (36 points) and Alec Whitaker (38 points), who were the first recipients of the new Open Golf Trophies, which has the names of the winners from the previous 9 years engraved on the base. The runner up in the Ladies competition was Jacqueline Vandeveld (32) and for the Gentlemen Brian Hill and Stephen Jeffers, both on 35. Prize winners for the nearest the pins, part 3 scores and hidden holes were Luz Schmaelzle, Alec Whitaker, Rob Veltman and Alistair Maxwell. 

A most enjoyable day was experienced by all who took part and our thanks to Penina’s Golf Director Sr Salvador Macedo and his golf and restaurant staff for their hospitality and for presenting an excellent golf course and delicious luncheon once again.

Our great thanks go once again to MEDAL Insurance for their continued sponsorship of the tournament and to Golf4Greys and George and Lynn Cook of for their excellent work in organising the event and scoring the cards.

The 2020 event will take place on 9th September at Penina
