|Greetings from Derek||Monday, 26 June 2017|
We have been doing some tree planting on the course as seen in this photo between 17 and 18. We have also planted some trees up the right side of the 5th hole which is all looking good. Planning and planting of trees is an ongoing project which goes toward making this the special golf course that it is. We have also done a light dusting of the greens and they should be really good for the classic in three weeks.The US Open is on this week and looks to be another exciting major. They are playing on a links type golf course and trying to pick a winner with all the good youngsters around is almost impossible, but I do think that the course will suit our own Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace. Phil Mickleson was another, but he seems destined to miss the Open as he needs a 4 hour weather delay to make it to the tee on time. His eldest daughter graduates on Thursday. I would also love to see Brandon Stone have a great week. There are a number of South Africans playing which should make for good viewing.
The Southbroom Slam BB points will be gathered again this Saturday and the big board will be up next week.
Is our Club Manager and Ace Amateur Golfer Gavin Sole sinking this putt? Gav has put up a bottle of wine for the fastest e-mailed answer back to us. (photographer excluded?? )
Last Saturday you could feel a great team spirit as all the players enjoyed their BB stab games and the match to match tussles to determine the winners of the Captain vs Vice.Captain Gerald Fitzgeralds comfortably took the honours with 13.5 games to Vice Don’s team with 3.5 games, but there were some incredibly close scores within the afternoon.
The Ladies were all dressed in shades of purples and pinks, and Vice Captain Allyson Team scooped the honours with 4.5 games to 2.5 games.
The Bar was packed later with everyone enjoying the Boks win against France and the delicious Ribs & Chips and Fish & Chips! All in all a great day!
