Congratulations to Eddie Roux and his Gauteng North Mid-Amateur team
MIDDELBURG (17 October 2014) – Pieter Cooper and Louis Jonck gave Gauteng North manager Eddie Roux (Past Club Captain Services Golf Club) two reasons to cry for joy when the pair boxed the crucial putts that sealed the side’s B-Section promotion in the South African Mid-Amateur Inter-Provincial at Middelburg Country Club on Friday.
“My heart nearly stopped a few times, but this was without a doubt the most amazing week of my golf career. Every man on the team played with pride for their province and for each other.
“These players showed incredible depth of character to fight back every time they got knocked down. They showed great courage under fire and I am incredibly proud of what they achieved.”
Gauteng North won the prestigious team championship at Irene Country Club in 2009, but was bumped back to the B-Section just 12 months later in Worcester.
“It has been a long and hard battle to get back into the A-Section,” Roux said.
From Services Golf Club we would like to congratulate Eddie Roux on this great achievement.
Gauteng North 6.5 vs Mpumalanga 5.5
