Amateur Golfers to play this weekend
This is the 26th year that Bank Windhoek will sponsor the Namibian Open. “We would like to thank Bank Windhoek for their generous sponsorship of N$30 000 this year, which makes them the biggest sponsor so far for any Namibian Amateur Golf Union (NAGU) Open. Without their support, golf would not be where it is today”, said George Vink, Captain of the Windhoek Golf and Country Club (WGCC).
The Bank Windhoek Namibian Open Amateur Golf Championship will not only see amateur Namibian golfers taking part, but golfers from South Africa (eight players), Botswana (eleven players) and Kenya (nine players) have also entered the amateur tournament to prepare themselves for the Zone VI championship.
Last year’s tournament was won by Brendon Britten from Walvisbay who played 225 shots over the three rounds, closely followed by Roux Jeffery with 226 shots. Eli Mbango and Paul Ndeilenga both secured the third spot. Britten is currently part of the Namibian Team competing in Zone VI, but Jeffery turned professional early this year and would therefore not be eligible for this Amateur event.
