Eventually we have manged to survive all the social media jokes about January, and we have got through the 69 weeks of January. So, let’s start living again. I noticed already that the field for the second week in February is back to it’s fullest again, let’s try and keep it that way.
Some innovation to start off the 2019 golfing calendar. A Nearest to the pin shootout at our signature hole. The sixth hole at Krugersdorp Golf Club has always been our signature hole and regarded by all as a fantastic hole even when we are experiencing problems with the dam it is still a challenge. This shootout starts at 17:00 next Friday the 15th February and we are planning to have a pub under the lapa on the tee box, plus we are hoping to be selling boerewors rolls or prego rolls for supper. All you need to do is bring your own camp chairs and money. Clubs and balls will be provided. Really hope to see you all out there, it promises to be lots of fun.
Is this a sign of the future, men and women teeing off, in alternate groups, on the same course and for equal prize money? I must say I am in favour of it, makes the field a lot easier on the eye.
Hollowtining went very well during January and our greens will soon be at their best again. Thanks to all the members who still came and played at our course during this period, it really is appreciated.
Various league sides starting their 2019 season over the past couple of weeks and the results were promising for the new season:
- Juniors beat Kyalami.
- The Mid-Am team beat Parkview.
- The handicap team had a narrow loss against Riviera.
The new league shirts are receiving lots of positive reaction from all the members. I will see if I can get a pic for next months letter.
Most of the 2018 Knockouts are completed and I am sure that I will be able to anounce all the respective winners in my next newsletter.
The dates have been set for this years club champs and the lsits have been placed on the notice board. Everyone is encouraged to enter and be part of the competition. Come on guys and girls.
Ladies and C Division will take place on 9th and 10th March and A and B Division will take place on the 16th and 17th March.
