Our Gauteng players have featured well so far this year.
In the WGSA Performance rankings, we have 7 players in the Top 20 with Symone Henriques in 1st place, Zethu Myeki in 3rd, Kaiyuree Moodley 4th, Samantha Whateley 10th, Stephanie Barbaglia 12th, Kera Healey 16th and Kim Turgut 20th.
The Limpopo Championships were held this weekend at Koro Creek Golf Club in Limpopo. After 54 holes, there was a three way tie for 1st place which meant a playoff was needed to decide the winner. The three players involved in the playoff were all from Gauteng. Zethu Myeki of Randpark, Samantha Whateley of The Country Club Johannesburg and Symone Henriques of Glenvista.
Holly Lau, aged 15, from Woodhill Country Club in Pretoria, aced the 8th Hole at The Country Club Johannesburg, Woodmead Course, on Sunday afternoon.
What an achievement, the first ever Hole in One in our Gauteng Champs.
Ladies Golf Gauteng President presented Holly with a Hole in One badge and a certificate from The Country Club Joahannesburg.

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. Kaleigh Telfer of Bryanston Country Club was the first Gauteng and South African Junior golfer to represent South Africa in the Youth Olympics in 2014, she was just 16 years old.
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.
Ladies Golf Gauteng are very pleased to announce that Brenda Shimmon has joined our Executive. Brenda will be our new Secretary. We would like to wish her many happy years on our committee. Her email address is email@example.com

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
2 Kajal Mistry
3 Zethu Myeki
5 Symone Henriques
9 Kaleigh Telfer
10 Kaiyuree Moodley
The Gauteng Golden Girls was played in conjunction with our Mid Amateur over the past two days.
The Silver division was won by Valda Ford on a count out from Karen Wales on 166
The Bronze Division was won by Rene Roodt of Randpark on 68 points after two rounds of very consisteng golf (35,33)
The tournament is complete and we have our proud winners of the first ever Gauteng Mid Amateur. Firstly we would like to thank our very generous sponsors, Cenotec South Africa. Unfortunately neither of the Directors, CK Son or Chris Rule, could make it to prize giving but they were thanked in their absence.
Our inaugural Mid Amateur got underway today. The ladies were very excited to be competing in our first ever Mid Amateur. It is very poignant to host this event at Ruimsig as it was the late Erica Botha who planted the seed in our heads to host a Mid Amateur. We are so pleased that we have done it now and remember her fondly.
Our inaugural Mid Amateur Championships gets under way on Tuesday at Ruimsig Country Club. This event is open to all lady golfers in South Africa aged 35 and over. Sadly we have had a very dissapointing turnout from our Gauteng clubs but welcome our ladies from Modderfontein, Parkview, Eagle Canyon, Ruimsig, Randpark and Kyalami and of course our wonderful visitiors from Kwa-Zulu Natal, Limpopo and Gauteng North.
After many years of holding our Gauteng Golden Golfing Girls, we have decided to replace it with The Gauteng Mid Amateur Championships. We have had so many requests over the years to hold a Mid Amateur for players 35 and over. Many unions in South Africa have started hosting Mid Ams to cater for our more mature single figure and mid teen golfers. These have been very well supported over the years and we are hoping that ours will be too.
This is the final LGG event for the year and we would like to thank all the Gauteng ladies who have participated in our tournaments throughout the year for your support. We played on Randpark's Firethorn course, which was in immaculate condition as it is only a week before the Joburg Open. The rough was extremely tough but the winning scores did not reflect that. All the results are recorded in the Photo Gallery attached.
We have a very full field for the Christmas Alliance and ask that you all ensure that your partners are aware that they are playing and their tee times. This is our only four ball alliance competition and is always fun for everyone to play.
