WINDHOEK, 18 DEC (NAMPA) Gerd Vogel won the Coastal Senior Open Golf Championships at Swakopmund last week.
Thirty-nine golfers from various golf clubs at the coast and inland participated in the tournament that took place at the Rossmund Golf Course on 12 and 13 December 2017.
A media statement issued by main sponsor Bank Windhoek on Monday said Vogel won his third competition with 76 Stableford points, while Bennie Venter and George Vink from Windhoek both obtained 73 points, battling it out for second and third place.
Stableford points refer to a scoring system in which points are awarded according to the number of strokes taken at each hole.
The players competed individually and had to play for the Central versus Coastal trophy.
The team from the central branch won the Central versus Coastal trophy back from the coastal branch, who won it both in December 2016 at Rossmund and in May 2017 in Windhoek, the statement said.
