Let’s start with the Investec S.A. Ladies Open. I could tell you personally what a success it was, but let me rather quote one of the organisers, Barbara Pestana from W.P Golf, who had this to say:
“It is an absolute pleasure to work with you all, the willingness to assist and the friendliness makes our jobs so much easier. Collectively this makes us feel like one big happy family. Please may I ask you to convey our sincere thanks and appreciation to your Board for agreeing to host our flagship event and to all your members who gave up their course for us and last but not least, to ALL your staff for going the extra mile.”
High praise indeed! A special word of thanks must also go out to all the volunteers who gave up their time to help make this such a success.
Thursday is Human Rights Day and as is usual on a public holiday, there will be an afternoon competition – 4Ball Betterball Stableford. Everyone is welcome.
Good luck to our Mid-Amateur and Masters league teams who are both playing Durbanville on Saturday.
Thanks to all the members who removed their trolleys from the trolley bay rooms for the SA Open. We have taken this opportunity to implement a new system regarding the storage of your trolleys. At the moment, no one has access to the trolley bay rooms. When you bring your trolleys back, please come to the office so we can put your name on your trolley and advise you what your trolley bay number is. You will then have access to the trolley bay room again. We are doing it this way, as there were trolleys found in the room which were not allocated to anyone and no bay allocated to that member’s name.
A reminder to all our ladies that the next Ladies Open day is on the 4th April and each 4-Ball must include a visitor. Get hold of your friends at other clubs and let’s fill the field and show off our amazing club. Cost is R170 for members and R350 for guests. This includes great prizes and a meal after the game. For more information contact ladies’ captain Ursula.
