|Greetings from Derek||Saturday, 12 August 2017|
It was so good to have 22ml of rain on Monday and it is always amazing how quickly everything greens up.
So far we have had such a good time weather-wise for winter. It really is a great time of the year to be in Southbroom. Club Manager Gavin asks if all members could check as you should have received your Pro forma membership invoices for the upcoming year Sept 2017 to Aug 2018. They were sent out to all last week.
If you haven’t, please could you contact him firstname.lastname@example.org and re-confirm your email address please.
The 9 hole Par 3 Contest last Sunday was good fun and it was great to see the youngsters and families enjoying the afternoon. Van Zyl Greying showed his skills with 21 points to be the leading adult, and Graham Sole, who seems to get taller by the week, tied with Josh Moody winning the Junior Section with 15 points.
Our bunkers are actually quite good. I have to say in the nicest possible way that the general technique of golfers trying to get out of bunkers is not that good and it is actually very easy. Come along and see how.
At 07:00 o’clock this Sunday, the 13th morning, come and join in walking or running 5 or 10km on the golf course.
Registration from 06h30 in the Clubhouse. Bring the kids and the dogs. R40 entry includes a bacon and egg roll. Such fun – Even if it rains a little bit!
Congratulations to Malcolm Greenland who enjoyed a mafic hole-in-one on the 4th hole on Friday 4th August.
And To Norman Farrell and Don Osbourn on winning the Casa Toscana BB Stab on Wednesday.
The Ladies Casa Toscana prizes will be given out later this month as Wed was a very small field.
The Ladies High Tea was a grand affair on Women’s Day. There was a full house and the clubhouse was abuzz with happy Ladies with great fashion from Not Sheep, delectable canapes made by the wonderful team of Brandon & Sam from Tamarind! The tables were a treat with the different themes and the sponsors outdid themselves. All in all a very happy afternoon. Well done to Dawne Murray and her table hosts – all the wonderful pics can be seen on the Southbroom Golf Club facebook page!
So good to see Jenny and Graham Holford thoroughly enjoying the wedding of their beautiful daughter Lara to Hareth Al-sakarin England recently. Congratulations all!
Ola Peyios has moved her salon into Southbroom. Ola started her career with Hesme in Uvongo in 2001 then she has enjoyed working from a lovely home salon for 10 the last 10 years.
