Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 5.16.23 PMThe Conares Golf Society League is hotting up with just one round of fixtures remaining before the knockout stages of this year’s tournament. The Indian Expats and South African Golf Society (SAGS) lead the way in the Conares League on 13 points with the KEGS-1 one point further back. The Vikings sit on six points with GTI on three, and with one fixture remaining the GTI will need to win their matches and hope the Vikings slip up in order to avoid elimination from this year’s competition. With the bottom team in every league knocked out before the play-offs begin it looks bleak for the Gulf Rock team who prop up the pile in the BMW League on four points from six fixtures. They will need a big performance in the final round in order to overtake the GODS and advance to the play-offs. The White Rose Golf Society, Sport 2 Business-1 are assured of progressing while it would take an astonishing turn of events for ASEAN not to move forward. The Naboodah SGB have dominated proceedings so far in the SNTTA Travel League with seven wins from their eight fixtures for a haul of 21 points. The four remaining teams could all suffer elimination with only six points separating second place from last place, so anything could happen in the league’s final fixtures of DKN Law vs Sports 2 Business-2 and Happy Hookers vs KEGS-2.
