|Greetings from Derek||Sunday, 05 November 2017|
Our ladies performed superbly at the KZN Interclub in a bitterly cold Dundee over the weekend . Dundee GC did a great in organising, which means a good time was enjoyed by all. Michelle Davis and Jeanette Peyios finished 3rd overall, only one point behind the winners of the Bronze Division, 5th were Di Morris & Jean Cole , 6th place were Allyson Thomas and Sandy Fitzgerald and a very respectable 14th place for Irene Schanda and Shirley Jeffery. The Teams best finish in years Well Done Ladies Great golf and good spirited fun as well!
The Men’s Inter Club teams also enjoyed their weekend but didn’t fare as well. The Southbroom B Division of Gavin Sole, Kevin Murray & Gary Purtell lost in the B Div final against Kloof.
The ongoing lack of water saga due to UGU strike action is really testing all our resilience and patience over the entire Lower South Coast and we sincerely hope and trust it will be resolved soon.
It was exciting to have my good friend Manny Zerman in town and playing golf at Southbroom last week. He was such a good player, twice playing at the US Masters and performing well. He grew up at Umkomaas with his brother Ray and Tim Clark, which just goes to show that with the right attitude good players can develop from the small towns. He was down here with the Wild Boys, Devlin Player, Ian Middleton and Gavin Vice who play in our Southbroom International Shootout in mid February every year, which is a reminder to put your team of four players together for Fri 9, Sat 10 and Sunday 11 February 2018. Men, Ladies or any combination and what great fun! Alliance BB Stab & Ind stab format.
The Black Lapels evening was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all What a great Vibe, Superb Music
and delicious hot burgers and chips were served at interval!
This Sunday we have a Sunday Lunch With Live music from The Gentry.
