Lovely pic sent in from John Whitnall
THE CONCERT ON THE COURSE was moved into the clubhouse due to the rain and more threatening that day but it was a huge success and enjoyed by over 280 happy folk.
It was a real family event with kids running around having fun on the golf course, parents listening to music and there was such a good spirit at the club. It was lovely to see the club house facilities at capacity and Well Done and THANK YOU to Dawne Murray for her vision and brilliant organization – Dawne wasably assisted by Deanne Purtell and the Club Committee Members.
We survived 270 ml of rain from last Thursday afternoon till Tuesday morning on the course. Luckily there was no real damage but it was very wet.
Putting in drainage over the years has helped get golfers back onto the course sooner rather than later and clearly our water levels are up going into winter, the course is beautiful and being enjoyed by all our members and visitors. Its been a non stop week with large groups enjoying Southbroom.

OUR FIRST SUNDAY SUPPER WITH MUSIC: Sunday 28th May, 6.30 for 7pm
All full and social members, and their family and guests, are invited to a very special music and supper evening at the club on Sunday 28 May.
There will be a carvery with a choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts catered by our visiting chef, Janet Larkins.
Many Southbroomers have had the pleasure of enjoying Janet’s delicious meals and Sean’s hosting skills until circumstances forced them to suspend their fantastic suppers for a while so it is a privilege to have them catering at the club.
Accompanying the meal will be the relaxing sounds of Papa and Mama James with their unique Madagascan sound.
Tickets are available at Southbroom Golf Club at R150 per person, including a welcome drink. Book early as only a limited number of tickets are available for this exclusive ticket-only event.
