Engelbrecht Wins Senior Golf Champs

Basie Engelbrecht was the overall winner of the Bank Windhoek National Senior Golf Championship that took place on 30 and 31 May 2014 at the Windhoek Country Club Golf Course.

The competition was in the form of an individual stableford on both days and 24 players participated in the event.

Engelbrecht won the competition with a score of 76. In second place after the two days was Jan van Wyk with a score of 73, and third was Johnny Adams with a score of 70.

The winner in the category for over 70’s was Vic Moll with a score of 70 and second was Gert Goosen with a score of 69.

In the over 80 category, Wolfie Trossbach was the winner with a score of 72. Wolfie is 86 years old and is still a force to be reckoned with on the golf course.

The four nearest to the pin contestants were Wolfie Trossbach (third hole), Johan du Toit (ninth hole), Dirk Steenkamp (13th hole) and Klaus von Klitzing (17th hole).

At the prize giving ceremony, Riaan van Rooyen, Head: Corporate Communication and Social Investment at Bank Windhoek, said that although most companies concentrate their sponsorship towards the youth, this sponsorship was a small way for Bank Windhoek to thank seniors for their contribution towards building the country.
