IBGA Handa SA Open 2021
October 2021 Benoni Lake Golf Course
The COVID-19 pandemic has again played havoc with many aspects of our lives in the last two years, not least of which was our golf. We are fortunate to have been able to stage an ISPS Handa SA Open event this year and last, which has not been feasible in most other countries.
This year our Open was again held in the Gauteng province, but moved from Glendower Golf Club to the Lake Club, Benoni.
1st: Morne Els (136), guided by Charl Enslin
2nd: Jontey Kotze (138), guided by Benoni caddie Solly
3rd: Leon Strydom (140), guided by Lizell Strydom
The SA Champions were as follows:
B2 Champion: Garrett Slattery (201), guided by Erich Kliem. Runner-up: Johan
B3 Champion: Morne Els (194), guided by Charl Enslin. Runner-up: Jontey
Ladies' Champion: Charlene Pienaar (216), guided by her father
The SA Blind Golf Association would like to express our sincere thanks to all of those people and organisations who provided financial and other support which made this event possible.
Thanks to the team from Benoni, from management, the pro shop, catering, waiters and caddies.
Last, but by no means least, the players would like to thank the dedicated group of guides and caddies who helped us navigate our way around the course. It was great to see several of our top guides there (who have travelled with us overseas on several occasions). Apart from those guides already mentioned above, great work was done again by Tino and Etienne. Special mention must go to the ever-willing Jurie Mare, who showed his versatility by stepping in to guide Johan at short notice.
