The Old Quad Golf Challenge 2015

The annual competition for the Old Quad Golf Challenge Shield, between Old Boys of Bishops, Rondebosch, SACS and Wynberg, took place at The Royal Cape Golf Club on Friday 25th September. As usual, each school was represented by a team of 24 golfers and the aggregate better-ball Stableford score counted towards the award of the shield. The winners this year were Wynberg, with a total of 500 points; second were SACS, with 496, followed by the ODs, with 485, and Rondebosch, with 467. No OD pair featured in the top seven pairs, but the best OD pair were Richard Llewellyn (1974G) and Peter Llewellyn (1979F) – 8th on 44 points, John Waller (1966W) and John Smuts (1969S) and Philip Austin (1976W) and Hamish Longmore (1975O) - equal 9th on 43 points. Richard Day (1978S), at the 8th hole, and John de Groot (1988G), at the 15th hole, won prizes for being ‘Nearest to the Pin’. As our usual main sponsor, Auric-Auto, had greatly reduced their sponsorship this year, the Old Boy Unions of the four schools contributed handsomely towards the staging of the event. The grateful thanks of all four schools go to them, as well as to a number of ODs who were the generous donors of all the main prizes, namely Anthony Hamilton-Russell, of Hamilton-Russell Vineyards, Jeff Grier, of Villiera Wine Farm, Gus Allen, of Constantia Glen Winery, Sanjay Daya, of Spur and Panarottis Restaurants, and Rohan Vos, of Rovos Rail.
