Walker Park Golf Club’s 39th Gold Rush

The Gold Rush was again a huge success and a big thank you to all the sponsors.

Mr Hansie Annandale won the Gold Rush with 83 points with MJ van Rensburg.

The 39th Gold Rush at Walker Park Country Club was played this past weekend, 14 – 17 June and approximately 89 players played this year. Like previous years, the golfers were not scared to brave the cold winter mornings and ensured they were covered from head to toe. This did not deter any of the players.
As usual the days were well sponsored by various sponsors on the four days.
The sponsors were: Gavin Gertzen from Gavin Gertzen Steel Co., Lukas and Susan Potgieter, Fortis Hotel Evander, Lake Umuzi, Boesies, Papa de La and Klinger. The course was in immaculate condition despite the winter field that is in play and the greens had their trademark quick roll. Some golfers laughed when asked about the putting and said that the greens were incredibly fast!
The winners on Day 1 were: RJ Ferreira – 40 points and Vanessa Potgieter – 35
Day 2: Renet van Biljon – 38 and Deon Uys – 43
Day 3: Henry Brooks – 44 and Vanessa Potgieter – 39
On Day 4 the overall winners were announced: Renet van Biljon – 77 and the men’s winner was Hansie Annandale – 83.
The Gold Rush was again a huge success and a big thank you to all the sponsors. The biggest thank you goes to the Walker Park team. The staff did an amazing job and without them the Gold Rush would not have been as successful as it was! Well done team! – Ané Prinsloo
