The 1st round results:

The Premier 1 side captained by James Buzzard had an impressive win against Maritzburg Golf Club at home. The final result ending 11-1 and thus a comprehensive win to start the season. Impressive wins by club stalwarts Murray Gilson, Ian King & Grant Lister-James were very pleasing, each winning their games convincingly 7&6, handing an infamous Dog Licence to their opponents.

The Premier 2 side had a bye in the first round, captained by Philip Grant.

The A side captained by one of our previous Club Captains Laghlan Gourlay, unfortunately had heavy rain impact on the outcome of their match against Royal Durban Golf Club thus resulting in a draw finishing 2-2 after the morning foursomes. The singles matches weren’t completed due to heavy rain.

The B side, playing at Beachwood captained by Paul Brown, played a determined Ethekweni 1st team. The foursome results ended 3-1 in the morning and the Singles matches ended 4 ½ – 3 ½ in the afternoon. The final score 7 ½ -4 ½ ended in a solid win for the B Side! Impressive performances by Ryan Peak, Matthew Kruger & Marc Proctor made for a good start to the season.

The C side travelled to Kloof Country Club to play a tough match in the rain against the Kloof A side. The captain Shaun ‘Frankie’ Cullen had a tough away fixture with his team and experience his first ever gin bowl. Unfortunately the result did not end favourably for Dcc, with the final score being 3 ½ - 8 ½. Liam king played well winning his foursomes and singles matches respectively. Some tight matches could have gone either way, possibly changing the final result.

Allerton 1 played away and lost 3 - 9 in their match against Central Durban. Captain Paddy Goss and his team found the opposition hard to beat around their home course.

Allerton 2, led by stand in Captain Markus Fritz played away at Windsor park against Greater Durban also had a difficult match eventually going down 4 ½ - 7 ½. Regular Captain Tony ‘Turbo’ Turbiglio will definitely have some inspirational words for his team before their next league match to turn things around.

Result Summary:
Prem 1 - Won 11-1
Prem 2 - Bye
A Side - Drew 2-2
B Side - Won 7 ½ - 4 ½
C Side - Lost 3 ½ - 8 ½
Allerton 1 - Lost 3 - 9
Allerton 2 - Lost 4 ½ - 7 ½
