Dominican Defeat Mary Kihn
Dominican School For The Deaf defeated Mary Kihn School For The Partially Hearing 21-15 in a nine-hole team match played at Rondebosch Golf Club on Friday.
The fixture – which featured three golfers from the respective schools – marked the first time that two of SADGA’s First Swing Program schools had played against one another outside of the annual Deaf Interschools tournament.
The day was a resounding success with golfers from both schools playing some terrific golf. With loads of banter exchanged prior to the contest it was great to see that everyone played the game in the right spirit which highlighted what fantastic SADGA ambassadors there are within the First Swing Program.
Another feature of the fixture which made for a memorable day was the fact that there were as many female golfers as male golfers, all of whom are exciting prospects for the future.
In the end Dominican prevailed by six points but in light of the success of the inaugural fixture it won’t be long before the Mary Kihn golfers get an opportunity to exact revenge.
A sincere thank you to Rondebosch Golf Club for the incredibly generous green fees offered, the gesture means a great deal to everyone at the SADGA. Thank you to Western Province Golf for the ongoing support.
