Results of the LV/HV/Lim Triangular

The Annual Triangular Match between Highveld, Lowveld and Limpopo was hosted at Graceland Country Club on 15/16 February, 2014. The course was in an excellent condition. A and B teams took part. This annual match  stretches way back to the early 1970’s where the then Far North dominated. Highveld took over this mantle from late 1990’s to 2011 when Lowveld decided they had had enough playing secon fiddle and with a crop of youngsters have since taken over. This pattern continued over the past weekend with Lowveld winning the A section comfortably in spite of 2 of their stars not being available – Thriston Lawrence and Teddy Mathebula .
