Women’s Golf Western Province Van Loveren Inter Club Teams Championships:
This is a really great tournament the ladies golf union puts on each year at different venues. It’s a foursomes stroke play 54 hole competition, held over three days.
The club hosted 258 ladies (129 teams) from all over the Western Province and Boland areas. The tournament started Friday 8 May and round up on Sunday. This year is the 22nd running of the tournament and it is terrifically supported. This year, same as last year, Van Loveren was the main sponsor, which of course is always well received by the ladies. Although the whole competition is played very seriously, it is done with great inter-club spirit and caters for the young and old alike. This year the youngest player was 19-year-old Bianca Theron from Devonvale, and oldest player was a Westlake veteran of 82 years.
