It’s a busy time!
Please note the course is closed Friday 19 October, Saturday 20 October and Sunday 21 October as we are the main host club for the KwaZulu-Natal Men’s Inter Club Tournament 2018.
The kitchen & restuarant are open. We wish our Southbroom team well in the tournament and hope to see them in the finals at Southbroom on Sunday. The other host clubs are Margate & Port Shepstone.
Congratulations to Lady President Irene Schanda who won the Cora Hicks Winter Medal with 72 Nett. Irene also won the Least Putts Prize!
Southbroom Mixed Classic
We had the most wonderful Southbroom Mixed Classic on the weekend. There were 64 couples playing Greensomes on Saturday and Better Ball on Sunday in pretty good conditions which was really quite a luck as we had seriously adverse weather either side of the weekend. After a relaxed welcome on Friday evening and a few putting tips on Saturday morning the players teed off.
Greensomes is not an easy format and the best stableford score of the day was 37 points by Bob and Gesi Graham, so no runaway scores. We then had a proper party on Saturday night with the help of our local band The Legends… Mel Davies, Richard Bridgeford, Des Erasmus and Dion de Beer played up a storm of music with some guest appearances by Bob Dylan and Elvis and so much dancing. Such a fun evening. Day 2 started with a fabulous breakfast, a short golf clinic and a shotgun better ball tee off. The weather was great and all set for a great day.
A huge thanks must go out to our main sponsors Johan Kinsey Allers and his Audi Centre Margate who had a super display of cars and ladies on the first and fourteenth tees. Audi Centre Margate have been a wonderful sponsor of Southbroom all year and we are looking to our members and visiting guests to please support them in turn. So think of them the next time you are up for a car and I will show you how to drive!
Once again Deanne Purtell and Realty1 Southbroom were very active on the 10th tee with a smile, coffee and some drinks if needed, together with valuable knowledge & advice on accommodation, property services & where to rent & buy in Southbroom. So thank you Realty 1 once again for your support. Also to Colin McKay and Applied Outsourcing for his on going support of our major events and Dave & Liz Page of Coral Tree Colony – Always a pleasure to work with.
Thanks to our local Ace Décor Ladies: Michelle Davies, Allyson Thomas, Irene Schanda, Shelley Myers & Shirley Jeffery for transforming the club house and bar into the 1920’s Gatsby Era!
Thanks to all our wonderful sponsors and to the players who travelled from all over to enjoy the Mixed Classic.

A brief, but most sincere, word of thanks for the marvellous event that you all so capably hosted.
I have no doubt that all the participants thoroughly enjoyed the week-end as much as we did.
Congratulations and thanks to you both and all the Southbroom GC staff.
