KWV Paarl Ryder Cup 2019

Paarl Golf Club welcomes the KWV PAARL RYDER CUP 2019

The inaugural tournament of the KWV Paarl Ryder Cup took place in November 2018. The tournament is the brainchild of Team Captains Albert de Lange (USA) and Franco Davids (Europe), assisted by Keon Viljoen to bring friends together annually for competitive golfing. The tournament started in 2018 with 16 players, 8 players per team, and grew in this year’s Second Addition to 24 players, 12 players per team.

Every year the tournament tees off with a Gala Dinner for the players and their partners. This year it was hosted at Hey Joe Brewery in Franschhoek. The tournament then goes into two days of action-packed, fun and competitive golfing ending with the final prizegiving ceremony.

The goal of this tournament will be to expand every year and attract the rest of the community in the Winelands region to get involved in whichever way possible. It is still early days but we as organisers look forward to better the tournament every year and to face every challenge going with it. We are happy with what we have accomplished up to date by attracting remarkable sponsors and reaching our goal which is to please our players.

This year Team Europe won the KWV Ryder Cup 2019 with 13 ½ points over Team USA’s 10 ½ points.
