NWGU MID AM OPEN DECIDED IN PLAYOFF
The NWGU Mid Am Open was held on 24 July 2016 at Rustenburg Golf Course. A field of 90 players entered and play was slow. Due to play in the second round not going to be finalised before dark, the Executive of the Union decided to call off the second round and decide the tournament only on round one.
Two players finished joint first on 70, two under par. Ryan Dreyer of Kilarney Country Club and Albert Britz of Potchefstroom Country were in a playoff which Ryan Dreyer won on the first extra hole with a par.
The President expressed his appreciation towards Rustenburg Golf Club for making their facilities available and giving us an excellent prepared course.
