HISTORY OF THE CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS
The original idea of bringing together the men’s champion of every club in Kwa-Zulu Natal was the brainchild of the late Des Hamilton, a past Captain of Kloof.
Since that occasion 46 years ago when the first ever Champion of Champions was held with such outstanding success, this golf tournament has grown in stature and popularity year by year.
It has produced many top winners since Pat Kennedy of Zululand defied the elements in a storm-drenched first final (his group even survived a lightning strike). He set the pattern for a tournament that has now become a household name in Kwa-Zulu Natal golf circles.
Internationals such as Brian Turner, David Suddards & locals like Derek James, Tim Clark, Bradley Davison, Mark Cox & Jared Harvey are some of the competitors who have graced the winner’s podium.
The Ladies Champion of Champions was inaugurated in 1977 and for the last eleven years has been played over two days in conjunction with the men’s tournament.
MESSAGE FROM KLOOF COUNTRY CLUB GOLF CAPTAINS
It is a great honour to welcome all of the competitor’s to the 2018 Renasa Champion of Champions tournament held at Kloof Country
Club. In its 46th year of us hosting this prestige’s event, we all of our members, staff, myself and lady captain wish you the very best of luck for this wonderful weekend of golf.
We are indeed honoured to have both the Club Strokeplay and Matchplay Champions here present with us. And as such the winners of the tournament will follow in the footsteps of some of the top golfers of Kwazulu Natal whom have played and won this very same tournament.
To win your home Club Championship is a magnificent accomplishment in its own right but to win this event and be crowned the Champion of Champions is a
lifetime title that a good number will aspire to but only a magnificent few will ever achieve.
And even further on as the event winner to possibly be invited to partake in a similar event on a national basis would be even more of a prestige’s trophy to display in your trophy showcase Good luck and please enjoy the hospitality of Kloof Country Club and our
