2021 Summer Doubles Competition

The 2021 Summer Doubles Championship was held at Inanda on November 27 2021.

The format for this event was 'better disc', with a twist: during each quartet of holes (1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16 and 17-20) each player of the team of two had to have two of his/her drives used (on hole 21 the best drive of either could be used). This resulted in a lot of spur-of-the-moment strategy being required, and introduced another level of complexity to the approach to the holes.

A total of 12 teams participated, and after 21 holes two teams were tied on 5 under par. This resulted in a cruel, sudden death closest to the pin challenge, won by Lourens Vreugdenburg and Mike Crossland *.
