The UGC flag was being carried high throughout the week. Our ladies, Natalie Singer and Sabiha Bacaus represented the South Coast Region Mkhuhla and competed in the second round of the KZN Inter-Region Tournament, on Sunday, July 1. The gorgeous duo, needing a win to qualify for the finals, competed against the North Coast Region at Selborne. After the morning round of Foursomes and the afternoon round of Betterball, both teams were tied and it came down to the Matchplay. Our ladies stood their ground and teed off to victory! Sabiha and Natalie will participate in the final round, against Durban Region next month at Victoria Country Club.
