We are all working flat out as the events and annual milestones come up one after the other. It is always an exciting time of the year with lots of big golf days, functions and year-end parties.


Ladies AGM elected new committee members

The Ladies AGM was held this Tuesday. There was a very good turnout and the meeting was held in fine spirit, with Lady Captain Tessa Granger ending her 2-year term. In her own special way, Tessa oversaw the AGM, with the relaxed, confident and assured manner that we have all come to appreciate. She hands over the reins to Ursula Sa Couto.

Congratulations to our Ladies Section Office Bearers for 2018/19:

President – Annamarie Usher
Vice President – Rose Morrison
Captain – Ursula Sa Couto
Vice Captain – Marilyn Franklin


Lyn Cochrane
Edwina Burger
Leanne Patton
Lynsay Minnaar
Adi Campbell

We wish all the new lady committee members all the best for the upcoming 12 months.

Good times, here they come!

This Friday 9th November is “Nite Golf”. It is being held in conjunction with the monthly R10K draw, which will be in the downstairs bar. Pizza is included for all “Nite Golf” entrants which will be served downstairs. Pizza will also be on sale to members attending the draw from 18:00 to 19:00. I will be playing music too and we will have a festive evening.

Make sure you pop down on Friday!

Support your club

The Toyota Yaris Raffle sales are improving. We still need all the ticket stubs returned with the money once you have sold your tickets, please. In addition, there are still many members who have yet to buy a ticket or sell a book.

Please get yours from the office or manager on duty today and help us make a good profit. All proceeds will be ploughed straight back into the club infrastructure.

Here’s your chance to dress up

The Big Bash is on November 24th. Tables are selling well and if you still want to attend, kindly let Emelia know as soon as possible. The theme is Casino Royale, you are welcome to dress up and look fabulous. R250 buys you a brilliant buffet supper (click here to see for yourself), top quality entertainment and a night to remember.

Phone the office on (021) 788 2020 now to book your tickets. Don’t Miss It!



New face of the club

Our new website is now live and is looking very slick and professional. The information is up to date and if you explore a little, you will see all the extras that have been included. Please note that I will start loading the latest newsletter on Friday. We created a newsletter tab so that you can access the newsletter at any time, even if you don’t have access to your email. It is a work in progress, so we are making subtle changes as we find them necessary.

Any feedback is most welcome.

New booking system

The booking system has also gone live and is no longer integral with the website. In other words, you can access the bookings system at any time simply by logging on to www.teesheet.co.za. You all have received an email from the club, explaining how this works.

Please feel free to contact us should anything not be clear. Please note that the Golf Ops Team are currently working on finding an equitable way to make bookings for Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. This will eventually replace the current queuing in the foyer on Monday and Friday afternoons – however, this is still the case. More on this topic in the next week or two.

Course maintenance

On the golf course side, other than the usual summer maintenance programme, the team are currently levelling the yellow tee box on the 12th. This will be followed by the yellow tee on the 15th. This programme will continue as part of the summer process from worst to best until all the tees are levelled.
