|Keeping our course in tip-top shape
What a wonderful job Liz Norton is doing again on all our gardens, cleaning and freshening them up.
Thanks Liz, always much appreciated. There has also been some welcome rain and things are looking good for the Mixed Classic this weekend. Fun, laughter, food, friends and golf, we couldn’t ask for anything better.
After the weekend, we will do Spring Treatment, which is so necessary for the greens and I’m sure the course will be really good for the season.
It is quite interesting watching the new handicap system at work, though I’m not sure how good it is and what it will do to scores. Still, the wonderful game of golf remains captivating.
Congrats to Our Southbroom Ladies B Team for bringing home The Lewis Reynolds Trophy, played at Amanzimtoti last Sunday, 6th October. Well done Ladies! You have done us proud.

We received sad news from Europe this week
CONDOLENCES JEAN – CLAUDE PERIDON & BOB BOSSHART
Jean Claude Peridon passed away on the 4th October; and we extend our Sincere Condolences to his wife Sophie and the Peridon family in France. Jean Claude and Sophie were regular and very keen members here for many years, enjoying their home here for many months a year, playing in the Southbroom International Shootout and Club Champs. Jean Claude was a quiet man who loved his golf every day.
It was also a shock to hear that member Bob Bosshart had passed away suddenly in Switzerland this week after a mountain walk and fall. Bob was part of the Zurich Highlanders Team, playing annually in the Southbroom International Shootout. He and his wife Regina thoroughly enjoyed their summer months in Southbroom, escaping European winters. Bob always had a twinkle in his eye and zest for life, with such agreat sense of humour.
|Bob Bosshart – Rest in Peace
