Twenty-three UCT golfers took to the field at the Royal Cape Golf Club on "Masters" Sunday, 13 April, to compete in the 24th Ron's Mug and Kate's Jug competition.
This is held annually for UCT and former UCT staff (Ron's Mug), and for UCT spouses and family (Kate's Jug).
Emeritus Professor Flip Bornman (surgery) won the 2014 Ron's Mug '“ and the dubious honour of donning the "vile green jacket", handed over by 2013 winner, Emeritus Professor Alan Pontin (urology).
Kate Brown, wife of registrar Hugh Amoore, maintained her long-running record by winning Kate's Jug for the 11th time. Brown also had the best score among the golfers on the day.
The competition dates back to 1991 when Ron Allen, who worked in the UCT Maintenance Department (now Properties & Services), donated the Silver Mug and organised the first Ron's Mug Golf Competition for UCT staff.
In 2003 Amoore added Kate's Jug as a trophy for spouses and family of UCT staff members.
UCT staff members (and their spouses) interested in participating in the 25th Ron's Mug Golf Competition in 2015 should send their contact details to Prof Flip Bornman.
The date has provisionally been set for 12 April 2015.
