Good showings in the Southern Cape

Riaan Grootboom is one of the top SAGDB prospects in the Southern Cape

Fifteen players from the SAGDB took part in the recent Southern Cape Junior Golf tournament at Riversdale Golf Club. The players are all part of the SAGDB's elite squad in the region.

The best performance on the day came from 14 year old Riaan Grootboom, who finished third in the A division. The four handicapper carded a round of 74.

"Riaan is constantly improving and has been shooting good scores recently," said the SAGDB's development manager in the Southern Cape, Johan Erasmus. "He is currently eleventh on the u/19 order of merit and could even make the inter-provincial team at the end of the year."

17 year old Robin Meyer also had a good day, claiming the best nett prize in the A division. He shot 75 off his 5 handicap for a nett round of 70.

In the B division, 13 year old Virgill April shot a round of 85 to finish in second place.
