Umkomaas had an exceptional week, with members holding up the Club name with great pride.
Our Allerton League celebrated their 8 – 4 victory against Durban Country Club whom they versed on Sunday, 18 March at Umkomaas. The gents were absolutely thrilled to see all the support from the Hooligans groups, as they finished off on the 18th hole. Well done guys!
