The culmination of a season long battle between the clubs in the Western Cape took place this weekend. The Robinson Cup Tournament, a Somerset West initiative, inaugurated by Geoffrey Robinson who promoted the idea of friendly rivalry between the clubs.
Allan Wilson Classic Tournament
A very successful 3rd Allan Wilson Classic Tournament was held this past week culminating with a prize giving dinner which was held at the club on Saturday evening.
We were very fortunate this year being blessed with perfect weather conditions throughout the week not as previos years when rain always seemed to upset play on a couple of days.
It was rewarding to receive so many compliments from our visitors and a big thank you to all our members who worked tirelessly the whole week.
GC World Teams
The following have been selected to represent South Africa in the golf croquet world teams event which will be held at Surbiton, London from 15-21 May:

Congratulations to the players and we wish them the best of luck.
Last year the Nationals started with the Golf Croquet event which was played from 16 – 21 November. The venue was the Country Club, Johannesburg which has four courts at its Auckland Park facility. One of the bowls greens had also been made available so originally the plan had been to have five courts in use. As it happened, the lack of rain meant that one of the normal courts did not recover in time from its spring treatment so we were back to four courts. These were generally in excellent condition, apart from a few patched areas on Court C. The court speed was around 11 plummers with the bowls green being faster at 12 plummers.
