Welcome to the final newsletter of 2019 which is a combined one, with all the results and other news included.
Rest in peace, dear friend
We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Reg Pengelly on the 16th December. He was 86 years of age. Reg was a member of Westlake for 34 years and is survived by his wife Ann and family. The family business, Pengelly Autos still sponsors our ladies section. He will be greatly missed. The wake will at the club on Friday 20th December at 11h00.
The Birthday boys end off the year with a bang!

Remember that the course is closed on Christmas day, but is open every other day. Times on New Year’s Day are limited, so have a look at the time sheet if you are one of the brave ones wanting a game on the 1st of January.
The 2020 Diaries will be here before Christmas. Feel free to enquire at Reception after the 20th, as we expect them to arrive by then. As a matter of interest, we have gone for the bigger size, which is eminently more readable.
Kindly note that the Club has a new emergency number.
Please call the following number to get hold of us during loadshedding hours: 068 274 3693
Please also note that the managers take leave now, in what is our quietest time of the year. However, one of us is always on duty between now and the 20th January, so feel free to contact us via email if you need anything attended to urgently. Please mail all three addresses to be sure you reach the manager on duty on any specific day. The office will remain open with the exception of public holidays. Weekends are as normal. You can also see who is on duty, by looking at the board outside the office if you are at the club.
In closing, the staff and Committee would like to wish all our members a blessed Christmas and a prosperous and happy New Year. If you are travelling, safe travels and to everyone else, we look forward to seeing you at the club.
