For the second class there were two nearest the pin prizes, one for each target but before we tell you who the winners were a special presentation was made by long standing Royal Durban Golf Club member Bill Purcell who presented one of our new youngsters, Thapelo, with his own set of golf clubs. On behalf of Thapelo, 1st218 would like to thank you very much Bill for your generous donation

The second class were each given three golf balls. The first three shots were played to the close target and the next three to the longer target. By the time the “money round” came the youngsters had each hit 15 balls to each target. The “money round” consisted of each youngster hitting one ball to the close target and one ball to the longer target and it was Mikey who collected the prize for the close target and Jared who won the prize for the longer target
