Club Champs are currently on many people’s minds. The first weekend is done and the last 2 rounds take place this weekend. The weather was absolutely superb and the standard of golf overall very high. Well done to all the competitors and all the best for this weekend!
Also on this weekend is the Masters and that coincides with our first Festival event, namely the Master’s Par 3 Competition on Friday afternoon at the club. This is a great way to test your short game and coincides with the Par 3 Competition at the Masters. There are a few places still open, so call the office now to book your spot. Cost is R240 for members and R330 for visitors. This includes a delicious supper of calamari and ribs served with chips and salad. There will also be limited availability of this dish for non-competitors at R100 per head or 400g of ribs and chips at R80 per head, so please come and join us for a delicious meal, the R10k and whisky draws and all your favourite tunes! What a great way to start the weekend!
Please note that there are NO 9 HOLES on Friday, Saturday or Sunday this weekend. This is due to the Festival event on Friday and Club Champs on the weekend. Sunday afternoon may include a play-off.
A reminder that next weekend is Easter and on Good Friday we are closed completely. Also remember that like me, 26 000 other lunatics are running the Two Oceans, so plan your trip to the club carefully, as many roads will be affected. Good luck to all our members running the various races.
The course is in stunning condition and the greens remain quick and true. Placing will continue for the weekend – 1 card length. This is simply to have continuity throughout the championships. Raymond and his team will only begin with their projects again after the weekend and we will keep you updated on progress.
