It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Alison McDonald on the 10th November 2019 in Scotland. Alison was an avid supporter of Ladies Golf Gauteng. She was a member at Kyalami for many years.She was diagnosed with lung cancer a couple of years ago and was such a fighter, so positive and determined to conquer this dreadful disease. She will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Congratulations to Zethu Myeki of Randpark Golf Club on a brilliant 63 today on Bushwillow. This would have been a new course record with seven birdies and an eagle but there was placing in place, so unfortunately it cannot stand. Needless to say, her team won the LGG Christmas Alliance on 88 points. Well done to Brenda Shimmon, Judy Katz and Estelle Reynolds.
The GolfRSA team of Cole Stevens and Kaiyuree Moodley accompanied by manager Zethu Myeki have arrived back from the 3rd Youth Olympics but only the 2nd where golf was incorporated.

Please find attached the draw for Tuesday 16th October at Leeuwkop Golf Club, shotgun start at 8am.
The 2018 League Season has come to an end now that the last Sunday matches have been played. It was quite an eventful season with the torrential rain and cold we had only on league days! Thank you to all our league ladies for participating and the usual cameradery and sportmanship shown throughout the season. We are busy with the play-offs at the moment where we have the same great atmosphere.
The wonderful reception by RJ&K made all the players forget that it was once again "league weather"! We want to thank the staff at RJ&K for their kind reception and attention to detail, nothing was too much trouble for them. Every team received their scorecards and pin placement sheets in sealed envelopes from the lady captain, Wendy Huddy, there was complimentary coffee and biscuits and water on the tee boxes. Nothing was left to chance - thank you RJ&K!
I think everyone is battling to comprehend how this works. I have attached two documents which you can download for easy reference but don't print as a huge document.
The HNA Apps on the phones have been updated, you might have to restart the app to get the updates. There is a very easy to use calculator which I have used to get the info below.
Our Sanlam Cancer Challenge regional finals took place this morning at Krugersdorp Golf Club. It was a bitterly cold morning but the ladies came out in full force with smiling faces to take on the challenge. Sadly seven ladies from three clubs were "No Shows"
The players found the greens to be very tricky and the weather warmed up a bit and a good day was had by all.
- Players will be playing in the division they qualified in, from their correct handicap on the day, irrespective of whether her handicap falls in that division on the day.
ORKNEY, 26 June 2018 – Pint-sized Woo-Ju Son showed the grit, determination and endless talent of a future world-beater as she held her nerve brilliantly down the stretch to go wire-to-wire for a second successive time in the Nomads SA Girls Championship on Tuesday.
Son closed with a one-under 71 to triumph on five-under-par 71 at Orkney Golf Club.

Our Gauteng A Division champs were played over two days at RJ&K with the players playing 36 holes yesterday and 18 holes today. They played the West coast on Sunday morning and the East course on Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. The tournament was always going to be fiercely contested with South Africa's top golfers in contention and they certainly didn't dissappoint.
27 March 2018 – Kajal Mistry wrote the next chapter of her blossoming career when she won the Nomads SA Girls Rose Bowl Championship in wire-to-wire style on Tuesday.
In a show of sublime mental fortitude and composure, the 17-year-old Randpark junior was in a class of her own over 54 holes at Royal Cape Golf Club as she produced three well-constructed rounds to celebrate an uncontested eight-shot victory on 10-under-par 212.
News, hot off the press is that Zethu Myeki has won the KZN match play champs at Mt. Edgecombe this afternoon. Woo-Ju beat Larissa Du Preez 5/4 this morning whilst Zethu had a much tougher match to beat Casandra Hall after going to at least the 21st hole (not confirmed but there is no live scoring). Zethu and Woo-Ju had a tough match and Zethu eventaully beat Woo-Ju on the 20th Hole. Well done to Zethu and Woo-Ju, extremely proud of you both.
We at LGG have every reason to be extremely proud of Woo-Ju Son, as she in now number one in the whole of South Africa on the Open Rankings, the Junior Rankings and our Gauteng rankings.
We have six of our squad players making the Top Ten in the WGSA Open rankings. They are:
1 Woo-Ju Son
