The 3rd Annual Pinnacle Cup was played out at Pinnacle Point this last weekend. Two teams representing South Africa and Europe compete for a floating trophy on an annual basis and is played in a Ryder Cup format.

The Saturday morning Foursomes saw the SA team take a slender lead before lunch. The lead was increased further after the afternoon Betterball had been completed, leaving an uphill task for the European team to win the Sunday Singles, to wrestle back the trophy that the SA team won last year. Unfortunately, there was no ‘Miracle at Medinah’ to be had and the SA team were victorious come Sunday afternoon.

The winner of the event was golf and good camaraderie. All the matches were closely contested and played in the true spirit of golf. Good fun was had by all the 36 players who participated and we hope that by the time we play next year’s event, we will be able to increase the team numbers to 24-a-side.
