17 and 18 October 2015

The second Southbroom Mixed Classic presented by Pharaohs Construction was a wonderful event. We had a full field, sunny skies, a beautiful golf course and fantastic sponsors. Sure, there was some wind but that just makes for challenging golf. Judging from all the happy feedback, the Southbroom Mixed Classic was certainly enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to the winners, the top 10 being:

2014 Winners – Bev & Mike Riemer Congratulations!

Scoring was close with Mike & Bev Riemer holding their nerve when leading after Day 1. They made 41 points in the Saturday Greensomes and 41 points in the Betterball Stableford on Sunday which was enough for a two-point win over youngsters Darren Ovenstone & Lizzie Currie. We congratulate all the winners as well as Kevin Daly who Aced the 14th hole on the Saturday.

We thank our wonderful sponsors, with special mention going to presenting sponsor Marthinus du Plessis of Pharaohs Construction; his brother Etienne Du Plessis of Homes 100 who brought in many of the hole sponsors; South Coast Tourism; Midea Airconditiong and major prize sponsors Cemair, Moto Link and Realty 1 Southbroom. We also thank the many hole sponsors and especially those who took the time to man their tees/greens. Tournaments of this stature would not be possible without sponsorship and we urge players and members to please support our sponsors throughout the year.

We also thank members and staff who pulled out all the stops to ensure the tournament’s success and that the clubhouse and course was at their best. It was amazing to watch all the elements come together and Exceed Expectations.

The field was over-subscribed with twenty-five clubs represented and many of the players went to great lengths to embrace the African Safari theme. Derek (Doctor Livingstone I Assume) James, resplendent in pith helmet and oversized khaki shorts, set the tone at the arrival cocktail party. He was ably assisted by young African drummers and dancers and by Walter Robinson who fired a real shotgun-start the next morning.

Deanne Purtell and Lauren Curlewis of Three Black Dresses ensured that the theme carried through into even the smallest elements of décor. Members Richard Bridgeford and Des Erasmus jazzed it up on the Friday evening and Billy the Skit kept couples dancing to the wee hours on Saturday night. Sheena had collated the entries and made sure that every player’s need and request was accommodated whilst Gavin and his team delivered service and a menu to suit every palate and allergy. Liz Norton put last minute touches to the water-wise gardens that she is creating around the clubhouse and Charl and his team delivered the course in its best condition ever.

Sincere thanks to them all and to John Ncama (painter), Erwin Schanda (paintings), Irene Schanda and Rene Matthew (prizes), and last but by no means least, sincere thanks to presenting sponsor Marthinus du Plessis of Pharaohs Construction.

Southbroom Golf Club is proud to be associated with Pharaohs Construction, the Supreme Winner in the 2014 Excellence in Construction Awards, and we thank Marthinus for seeing value in investing in the Southbroom Mixed Classic and raising the profile of the youngest member of the Classic Trilogy.
