On Sunday the 14 of April, the last day of Milnerton Golf Club's 2013 Championships, Geno Belfiore, started the final round 4 under par, with a 4 stoke lead over Cameron Johnston.
With a few soft errors, Geno found his lead slipping away. With 2 holes to go, Cameron, Multiple Club Champion winner, was 2 strokes off on the 17th when he holed out his chip for an eagle 3. Geno missed a short putt on the 72nd hole of the championship, and Cameron parred, forcing a play-off. The game was still tied after 2 extra holes of play, so Geno and Cameron went into sudden-death. Cameron unfortunately, lipped-out on the last hole, for what would've been a spectaculer sand-save. And Geno stroked in the winning putt to become the 2013 Milnerton Golf Club Champion.
The Course… Milnerton Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 seaside course situated in a leafy suburb just 10 minutes north of the city of Cape Town. Surrounded by natural beauty, the course is a pleasure to the senses.
Nestled between the Atlantic ocean and the RietVlei river, this lush links-type course is relatively flat with few trees. But with the sea and the lagoon bordering most holes, and the 7 beautiful water holes waiting to claim the wayward shot, it offers a truly unique golfing experience! Typical of many links-type courses, you will play the first 9 holes out, enjoy a light meal at the halfway house, and then return back to the clubhouse via the second 9.
The Evolution… Milnerton Golf Club (MGC) has evolved from a six-hole course at its inception in 1913 into the world-class 18-hole championship course that it is today. The “9 out, 9 in” course is bordered by the Atlantic ocean on the west and a lagoon on the east, and provides a golfing experience unique to South Africa: Built on sea sand, we believe we are the only true links course in Africa. In 1995, MGC underwent a major facelift as a result of the development of the Milnerton Links housing estate on part of the course. Some of the original holes were retained, while others were completely rebuilt. The new layout, together with all its features, has proved to be a huge success.
