Greetings from Derek Saturday, 16 December 2017

Well done to Heiner Spoerri for his hole-in-one this week on the 11th hole at Southbroom. A hole-in-one is always very special, but even a little more special when it is a beautiful hole like the 11th where you can watch the shot all the way! Heiner hit a superb little 5 wood for his second ace  in his golfing career and his first in a competition.

 Di Morris, Lady President Irene Schanda and Augustine D’Ewes
And to the Ladies 2017 Gerrys Jug Winners – Di Morris & Augustine D’Ewes knocked out Jeanette Peyios & Mari Fielden to scoop the honours.

Ladies Christmas fun! 
The Ladies Christmas Golf 9 Holes followed by lunch was well attended and the ladies embraced the bush safari christmas theme. They found some tees in interesting wild places and played some quite different holes. The fun alliance was a real challenge in a ridiculously gusty wind! The Kitchen produced a delicious meal along the theme, including a biltong and feta quiche and delicious cranberry ice cream in sugar cones!

To quote from the ratepayers newsletter:

Exciting news, our wonderful local chef, Brandon Bisset, is now the consulting chef at the golf club so delicious food has become the norm…but at golf club prices…which is an exceptional benefit to have on our doorstep. Add to this the magnificent setting of the club, the welcoming staff and the family-friendly ambience – and we are onto a winner! Throughout the holiday season “Supper on the Patio” will be a welcome feature, with special menu options for the little ones. So Moms take note: after a long day on the beach don’t head for the hot kitchen – head for the long cool drink on the golf club patio, followed by a relaxed supper …now that’s a real holiday!

Southbroom Golf Course is looking wonderful, if a little wet, after all the rain. Our greens are great and we hear daily how golfers are enjoying playing the course!
