However, the Ekurhuleni institution has managed to double their chances for the fourth Ernie Els Primary Schools Championship in August. With two teams lining up at Middleburg Country Club, the defending champions will bring twice the firing power to the battle when the prestigious team event tees off from 9 – 10 August.
‘As the defending champions, we received automatic entry into this year’s event but we decided to enter both our A and B teams in the provincial regional qualifiers in June. I wanted all 8 players to experience the competition and have the chance to play together,’ explained Saint Dunstans Director of Sport, Chris Tucker.
The tournament is sponsored by the evergreen Els, who has won four major titles.
