May really has wonderful weather, the summer stickiness has gone and been replaced with crisp fresh mornings with warm sunshine. We get many groups touring at this time of year and its good to see them enjoying all the South Coast golf courses!
Roel Germs Trophy
It was really special to see the Germs family enjoying last Saturday. Art, Jenny, Meryl & Roel played together and were later joined in the bar by Bessie & Jan. Roel presented the trophy to delighted winners Norman Farrell & John Neaves. It is impossible to measure how much input and guidance Roel has put into Southbroom over the years, from course to committee, and Southbroom sure has benefited and grown immensely. We salute you Roel!

Gosh what can we say other than the HUGEST thank you to you both. We LOVED it so much. You asked us what we really really liked. Other than everything!
The personalized markers and goodie bags – the dancing – mainly Derek and Dane.
The show – the food was outstanding.
The slickness and extremely well organized 3 days.
The friendliness of everyone.
Thank you so much. And Derek thank you for doing our clinic. With everything else you had on your plate we really do appreciate the time. Thank you!
– Trish, Kim, Margie, Sonia & Sue P Alfred
Dear Derek, Sheena, Allyson, your wonderful committee, and all the other helpers — thank you for organising, once again, a superb tournament. I don’t know how you do it, it gets better and better. Every year you manage to come up with something different and the Dance Troup continue to excel. The atmosphere at Southbroom Golf Club is unique – so much warmth and friendliness. I certainly hope to be back next year unless injury, ill health or old age prevent me doing so!! Thank you once again. Kind regards.
– Anne Barrow
Thank you to everyone else in the pro shop and in the actual club. As always you put on the most fantastic tournament, I don’t think anyone can do it better than you. All the small and big touches, the fabulous gala evening, the excellent food (please thank chef) the lovely goody bags and just the well-organized 3 days.
Derek’s clinic, the extra little shots at some of the tees, the roving photographer, the brilliant and well-rehearsed show & music which we all loved, the décor, it as all just so well done. And of course — The dancing troupe!
And there was some hard work to get the course looking that good and cope with the previous rains. Well done. So our golf wasn’t up to much but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it was a real treat to be back at the Southbroom Classic! Thank you to you all.
– Chris Fane Hervey & Cathy van Blerk
A belated thank you to you both for yet another outstanding tournament at the Southbroom Ladies Classic. We look forward to seeing you both next year.
– Tessa Hinton & Jo Morley-Jepson
Once again what a great tournament. The food was the best ever and the hospitality from the Southbroom girls and staff were amazing. Once again thanking you for the hospitality extended to us all. All your hard work is greatly appreciated. Kind regards.
– Shirley Dallas
A short note to thank you all for another wonderful experience in your little piece of paradise! Your hospitality and organization always making us feel so welcome and relaxed. The food and entertainment was outstanding and your connection with the weather man was amazing!!! Thank you all and wishing you a wonderful rest of the year. Till next time.
– Marian Ledingham
Thanks so much to you, Derek and the rest of the team for an amazing tournament. We all loved the golf, the entertainment was spectacular, the atmosphere and spirit of all the players was amazing, and the organisation by the team was simply phenomenal. So much effort goes into organising a tournament like that, and it is so hugely appreciated and enjoyed by all the players. Thanks again, and best regards.
– Linda Aitken
Once again, my most sincere thanks to you all for such an amazing event! It’s very hard to put into words how great it all was and why…but as ineloquent as I am, I’m going to try??
Southbroom itself has a sense of magic for me. I was trying to put my finger on why it feels so special to me and why it seems to special to so many people, even those who have only visited for the first or second time. They too seem to feel drawn to the place and I thought it may be helpful to give you the feedback.
What makes it magical:
The Classic is very relaxed, fun, efficient and professional at the same time. That’s quite a hard combination to get right in any business. You get the balance perfect. You are serious about what you do, but yet you don’t take yourselves too seriously which makes for an unbeatable team – DJ your ability to get up on stage, belt out a number in some tight pants, white vest and mustie are examples of your ability to work hard and play hard. You are not aloof, distanced or arm’s length. You are warm, embracing and hospitable.
Southbroom is like an extended family. From you as a team to the committee, the members and the staff. You welcome everyone and its sincere. You mean it and it shows. People want to come back because they feel like they are at home.
The Staff. You have some amazing staff members. I know you have had certain issues over the years, but in the main, it makes it incredible to come back each year and see Jo and Wilson behind the bar. I have seen them every year since I was allowed in that pub. Robert has been your caddy master since I can remember my first game there as a little girl. There are others, and I encourage you as a team to applaud them more, to make them the face of Southbroom where possible, to uplift them and honour them whenever you can. They are, quite honestly, one of the main reasons I love Southbroom so much – they are familiar, welcoming and part of the family.
Touch – all the little touches and thought that was put into the event, from the communication to the gifts, massages, drinks and snacks on the course – it was all laid on for us at every turn. We were spoilt rotten and it was wonderful.
The Pro Shop – as always, so well stocked! Sheena your ability to have an eye for what people like and need is uncanny and exceptional.
The entertainment was fantastic – all the fashion shows, the skits, the Legends and Winston Smile. All brilliant! I think the world of you all.
