July is the month of The Open and with so many South Africans doing so well on the American and European tours we are all so looking forward to seeing some of our youngsters up there on the leader board.
The sub committees have been extremely busy trying to make changes at the club that will entice member’s families to attend more functions and be more social at the club. As members we should encourage them in everything they do. There is talk that a new deck is going to be built downstairs near the eighteenth tee with access to the restaurant and bar. This would be an excellent place to enjoy a light meal and drink and watch your favourite players finishing on the tee.
A club day is going to be held on the 31st August to raise funds to use to purchase furniture for this venture. All players on the day will be charged an extra nominal fee which will go towards this project. Once again please support this day. Hope to see you all there.
The golf on a Monday has been suspended for now and the committee will investigate the viability of this at a later stage.
Just a heads up that the cost of hiring a cart for a round of golf will be increasing across all categories shortly, so be on the lookout for that.
The latest league standings are as follows:
Men’s Handicap League
This side had an excellent wing against Eye of Africa and now play Dainfern for their last game. They need to win against Dainfern and would prefer Eye of Africa to lose to remain in the A Division.
This team is still having a fairly good season and hanging in there in the middle of the table.
Still unbeaten – excellent.
A few tips to speed up play while using a cart:
- Do not park the cart in the front of the green, park and exit to the rear of the green.
- It is not necessary to wait for your partner to play, if you are ready and the others are approaching their balls, play so long.
- Wait until your next destination point before you put your clubs back in the bag, in other words, clear the fairway as soon as possible for the fourball behind you.
