Club Championships rained off….
We had some fabulous rains leading up to Club Championships last weekend, with over 120ml falling in 18 hours. The course was totally saturated and we had to postpone the Club Championships. We have diarized them for the weekend of the 17th & 18th August, so keep those dates free!
Apart from a fallen silver leaf bush in the carpark and the usual few strelizias – all seem to weather the storm well! Since then the course has drained really well, and it was great to see all the waterways flowing well with the excess water.
New trees on the block!
We have planted some wonderful trees around the Metzlers bunker on the dogs leg of no 16. They are the Natal Plum and Acacia Siberiana or Paperbark and hopefully they do well in this critical position. Hole 16 is Stroke 2 and these trees will protect the corner forcing players to play the shape of the hole.
The Practise net is up
The new Practice net is completed! Thanks again to Mel Davies for the sponsorship. It’s a 2 bay area intended for a quick ‘hit a few balls’ warm up before play! Thanks again to Errol Amm for the mats and to the committee team for organizing the installation.
Well done to Mike and Gary Lig for winning the Casa Toscana Golf day with a fabulous 47 points and thank you once again to the Casa Toscana Restaurant for their ongoing support. The Ladies Casa Toscana day was won by Hannah Hierhold & Lesley Godley.
This weekend is the popular SPCA day, come and support a great cause. The SPCA are providing snacks with prizegiving and you can be assured that every rand will be well spent on the Lower South Coast SPCA and their many valued services! Comp fee is R100 and then there are a few good raffles, etc.

Condolences, Neville McGregor
We extend our sincere condolences and sympathies to Pearl McGregor, the family and to the many friends of Neville McGregor at the sad news of his passing on Sunday 7th April at the age of 85, after a long & bravely fought illness.
Neville was a past active member and then Leader of the Tuesday/ Thursday golfing group Dad’s Army for many years. He was fondly known as The God Father. He loved his golf and the tradition and camraderie of his fellow Dad Army Golfers.
There will be a celebration of Neville’s life in The Pink Room at Margate Retirement Village at 2pm on Thursday 18th April 2019. Please tell the guards at the entrance gate that you are attending the McGregor gathering at the Pink Room.
